    You are correct. But you have to be very careful. listen to others advice too.

    Hussain Saturday, 15 September 2012 05:02 PM

    Hirunika, get out of politics, you are too beautiful to get into the grime of politics in sri lanka.

    J Dan Monday, 17 September 2012 05:00 AM

    Shame less woman, Now she will say Duminda Iya did not shoot Thatta, He was shot by UNP

    sach Monday, 17 September 2012 12:33 PM

    When she became vocal against murderers many in the country hailed her thinking as if she is some kind of an angel who can change the system in the country. They saw a leader in her whom they can rallied behind her. But I always didn’t trust her.
    1.She is a daughter of ....
    2.No proper education
    3.No understanding of the political situation the country is, its economy and even ethnic conflict.
    4.She had supported CBK in 90s. For me anyone who supported CBK lacks political wisdom.

    leed Saturday, 15 September 2012 05:11 PM

    She hasd no principles.same as other politicos

    Kaslana Saturday, 15 September 2012 05:48 PM

    Another LEFTIST who endorses rightwing capitalistic-drug dealing. Historically, it is the leftist that destroyed our country and she is willing to follow their footsteps. .

    Chitral Saturday, 15 September 2012 06:05 PM

    Appreciate Hirunika's guts. Any son or daughter may have done the same; that's what we think. Seldom not due to outside pressures. She has the will to do it and she does it. I think Sri Lanka should have the youth who could take the lead like this in whatever the field. For her she has chosen Law and Politics. Her views are definitely flowing from her heart and not from someone's brains, I suppose. That's the bright side of it. Let us hope that other youth also learn a lesson from this and come up.

    TOTO Monday, 17 September 2012 12:38 PM

    Hello Bandara, not only you there are many top rated politicians are waiting to help her... don't know why...

    singing fish Saturday, 15 September 2012 07:14 PM

    Hirunika you must have some principles and you must adhere to it.Don't behave like achameleon.

    DEXTER Saturday, 15 September 2012 07:06 PM

    So have you figured out who KILLED your dear Father.... i'm shocked... the very people you are trying to glorify gave the Green light to assassinate your Father... and now protecting the very persons who arranged it... Grow up fast Dear Hirunika...

    SudhuPancha Saturday, 15 September 2012 07:15 PM

    Double game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!shame , shame, shame...........

    Ranmuthu Saturday, 15 September 2012 07:07 PM

    What do you think of the recent incident where thug Malaka assaulted army officer and still live free. Do you think any justice will happen to your father. May the triple jem guide and protect you.

    Hiru Nika Saturday, 15 September 2012 08:53 AM

    Heroin first - Good Luck Sri Lanka

    harry Saturday, 15 September 2012 09:14 PM

    Does not know the "HASTHAYA" behind the non-arrest of Duminda Silva.What a joke is that? SLFP apparently a leftist party as she believes but in government it is more right than even the other parties of the right.

    Manik Saturday, 15 September 2012 09:07 AM

    The LEFT you are talking about has done sweet nothing for the country.

    Babi achchie Monday, 17 September 2012 08:56 AM

    She behaves like a prostitute in politics. Shame on you Hirunika and you dad must be curling in the grave!

    sunila mendis Saturday, 15 September 2012 09:29 AM

    Bharatha's daughter was a kid when the father was enamoured by the charismatic Wijaya Kumarathunga. Wijaya the celluloid hero who wins fighting with number of thugs and bring justice to victims in films would have impacted on Bharatha .He played wijaya's film roles in real politics and became hitha honda chandiya.That is what took him to the house of his supporter when his wife was assaulted.. Hirunika filled the political vacuum of her father who was brutally gunned down.. Offer of money and vehicles and positions , security personnel are so appealing to the family She is too young and not having the support of a strong opposition ,she may have succumbed to the government's pressure.Media made her a superstar in politics too early.

    Vambatu Silva Saturday, 15 September 2012 11:17 PM

    Kathawa Doalaawe Gamana Payn

    Chicko Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:59 PM

    Very soon people of this nation will see her and Mr. Duminda sitting next to each in Parliament. that's what we call "Hiru bahina kalawa"

    lakith peenis Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:46 PM

    Citizen Monday, 17 September 2012 11:13 PM

    We have enough "puss politions" already! Would you stop wasting our time! The country is going down to dogs and you are not helping in any means!

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:04 AM

    All what she has proved is that she is just another politician with a gift of gab and we have enough of those in this country who have taken the masses for a ride.

    SB Monday, 17 September 2012 06:10 AM

    Another one trying to get into the best and most lucrative profession in Sri Lanka at the moment POLITIC'S making use of the father's death .

    kolla Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:09 AM

    Ayyooo Hiru nikker...

    weha Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:05 AM

    what i don't understand is why she hates one man but loves the people who are protecting him

    raj Sunday, 16 September 2012 01:06 AM

    if she ever becomes an actress, she would be a supper star becasue she is one of the attractives ladies.

    Chandana Monday, 17 September 2012 11:33 PM

    Not true, you have two tongues as usual other politicians in Sri Lanka

    raymond Thursday, 20 September 2012 12:10 AM

    Or worse, she might marry Duminda!!

    ase Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:20 AM

    miss pls. just shut up, you are daily massing up more and more, we have clealy understood you and your mothers mission, not better than most woman polititions of sri lanka.

    Shane Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:21 AM

    I have no idea what you are talking have to be more straight than a party and fight properly against corruption.

    funkymonkey Monday, 17 September 2012 11:47 PM

    mad Monday, 17 September 2012 12:33 AM

    SLFP is not a left. It is also a capitalist party.

    Yehiya Monday, 17 September 2012 09:01 AM

    She is too young & not matured. May fall in the trap of Mahinda & spoil the credential of late mr. Baratha. Is the time to silent in political view.

    Nikar Sunday, 16 September 2012 02:04 AM

    mko Thursday, 20 September 2012 12:59 AM

    kumar Saturday, 15 September 2012 10:52 AM

    kind of paba and anarkali.

    Anton Weeraisnghe Sunday, 16 September 2012 02:44 AM

    Every person needs a reason to live and she has, go ahead.

    sandman Monday, 17 September 2012 09:00 AM

    Great meaningful question indeed !!!!!

    sandman Monday, 17 September 2012 09:04 AM

    Yes, Artillery

    haasya Saturday, 15 September 2012 11:11 AM

    She is no different to the rest. Father got killed, now take the oppertunity (god given) join politicos, make some money out of it.

    jack Wednesday, 19 September 2012 02:04 AM

    No country in the world has 100% justice, but if leaders try, they can get closer to that. Question is how find them ?

    Enoka Sunday, 16 September 2012 03:32 AM

    No wonder..If she marry Duminda Silva next month...

    shan Wednesday, 19 September 2012 08:00 AM

    she will take money. Join MR, Sit next to Duminda for the Photo with a smile.

    Don Quixote Sunday, 16 September 2012 04:03 AM

    AH damage control ! So they have something on her too.

    There is no one but Rajapaksa in this Country. It will take a bloody battle to effect change.

    bandara Sunday, 16 September 2012 03:43 AM

    Hirunika, you need top brains to back you. make a mapping for next 5 years before you step on. apparently you are intelligent. if i were you, i would go to Harvard Law School (USA) 1st. make an intellectual net-work. Go for next Presidential election. you will get 60% votes. If you go to Harvard, with a promise to serve Sri Lanka, i would offer you some funding. Do'nt worry, you have many fathers who will support you if you go on a sustainable future path. your current path i wont endorse.

    Dolly Saturday, 15 September 2012 11:05 AM

    Stong girl... Good luck

    I Hussein Saturday, 15 September 2012 11:06 AM

    27 minutes have wasted to justify one fact which is that she is on the regime side.

    DISGUSTED Sunday, 16 September 2012 04:39 AM

    This is all Bull......... shit.......

    I Hussein Sunday, 16 September 2012 05:32 AM

    Which opposition you talking about want this naive young girl as its boss.
    UNP (Renegades) reformists, Gen SF five man army party or Hemakumaras? None of them would last another year.

    Guti Kaapu Major Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:37 AM

    Oops there you go again ! Another gem !
    Have you studied gemology ?

    Kalani Baba Sunday, 16 September 2012 06:46 AM

    Money make people. Even i take the same decision if i get a Montero and a few millions.

    Nadeesha Pradeep Friday, 21 September 2012 10:20 AM


    suda Sunday, 16 September 2012 07:11 AM

    Money talks!

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 17 September 2012 06:59 AM

    Havard to do sinhalese politics...comeon man, you dont need that qualification to represent a population that still has its monkey qualities.

    Guti Kaapu Major Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:39 AM

    Another gem !
    Did you study gemology, Calistus ?

    shantha madawela Wednesday, 19 September 2012 09:02 AM

    Most Dangerous Woman in Srilanka......

    English Teacher Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:40 AM

    Wrong English.
    You should say, "...just another politician with THE gift of THE gab ..."
    I can provide you free tuition, Calistus.

    TM Lal Sunday, 16 September 2012 08:11 AM

    She obviously is a political personality. With politicians ‘way of surviving’ becomes the primary concern and principles can be secondary. She has selected a path that is best suited for her living, disregarding the principles she originally advocated.

    Dr Sha Monday, 17 September 2012 10:27 AM

    Sri lankan style - Fathers death is a qualification to become a politian.
    Can you believe the way she talks now and what she spoke few days ago? Twisting her on words by wasting 27 munites..

    Chris Perera Sunday, 16 September 2012 08:30 AM

    For sure she cannot do politics? she is getting carried away. How can this kind of people manage the country?

    seeya manamaalya Sunday, 16 September 2012 08:38 AM

    So, so, when is she going to marry Namal?

    Dr Sha Monday, 17 September 2012 10:46 AM

    This interview shows she got all pre-qualification to become a another dirty politian as many we have got already in SL.

    Thanking you for showing off your true colours...

    conty Sunday, 16 September 2012 09:20 AM

    Hey Bandara, What is the catch????? As far as I know charity is not a done thing in S/L unless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Francis Sunday, 16 September 2012 09:27 AM

    Next ambassador in the making as there is a need for more people like her since the government needs candidates for the African and the carribean countries where it will open embassies shortly. She has seen through the opportunities well.

    neil john Monday, 17 September 2012 10:43 AM

    Send her to a dancing school. not to Harvard. she is the next Anarkali in making!!

    Rom Sunday, 16 September 2012 10:54 AM

    Is that a shell a the backround!!!!!!

    solico Saturday, 15 September 2012 02:45 PM

    you are very correct

    sach Monday, 17 September 2012 04:09 AM

    She couldn’t give the interview in English and u are askin her to go to Harvard..

    Jayalath London Thursday, 20 September 2012 08:43 PM

    Im very very sad to see people like you , honestly have you born to a human woman ?

    Junior Citizen Saturday, 15 September 2012 02:39 PM

    she has every right to select her politics. Why should she laeve her father's party- Opposition thought they can make her common candidate for presidency

    Up Saturday, 15 September 2012 02:41 PM

    I only wasted 10 minutes.

    Harsha Wettewa Sunday, 16 September 2012 01:01 PM

    Why was not she interviewed in English?

    FrancisFr Saturday, 22 September 2012 02:45 AM

    DM please remove this dam story as we are fed up of seeing her picture for the past few days

    Dont insult us Saturday, 15 September 2012 03:40 PM

    Absolutely correct. She is marking time, making maximum on the situation to build her popularity. She has been changing colors like a chameleon.
    We have seen enough this type of politicians in the making......what a country we live in to see such 3rd grade dramas....

    srinath.gunaratne Monday, 17 September 2012 05:47 PM

    Well said Calistus
    Another BS politician, Her family was even involving Canadian prime minister. International Criminal Court.
    Here we go now. Hirunika hanging on MR's satake.

    Her father had lot of connection to underground. No different to Duminda. You get what you sow.

    Like Thondaman said there are no permanent enemies in politics.
    We will soon see Hirunika and Duminda in the same stage
    Shame on you...
    Imbeciles are the people who vote for these low lifes

    srinath.gunaratne Monday, 17 September 2012 05:51 PM
