Grego sir, I call you sir because I learnt physics from you. My parents paid 4 times more than other AL tuition masters for me to attend your classes. Just wondering- after joining politics, are you talking from your mouth, or ***?

He has kept his options opened to come back when UNP comes with a better programme in education

Another blow to the UNP
Independent Observer Saturday, 03 December 2011 04:41 PM
The voters elected you to be a UNP MP. Have you not deserted them as many others have done .for their personal gains ? You have said that you wish to contribute to the Education system , but you have set a very bad exaple at the commencement itself . Are you not asamed of yourself ? .

OPPORTUNIST !!! pure and simple... what kind of message is he sending to his students.
Jude Saturday, 03 December 2011 11:22 PM
You are an opportunist with no morals to stand on.You should have resigned from UNP and got the govt to appoint you through national list to support them.Tell us if you offer free education through your institutes to children and how many?You have learnt the art of smooth talking and a typical politician.

Just another hilarious case of puttihng a private school ownder to supervise the work of a "tuititon master". The message that Grero has delivered to the students is very clear: the ends justify the means and betrayal is not such a bad word these days if there is some personal benefit.

Don't tel us you are not a monitoring MP when you do something crazy.

you better find some one else to conduct this programme.. when he explains a point clearly...she again asks the same stupid thing...
Rathnaweera Tuesday, 06 December 2011 03:59 AM
Dear Mr. Grero, Could you kindly explain your wealth, annual income from institutions owned/managed by you, the tax paid by you etc., This will certainly clear the several allegation leveled agianst you as the reason for the cross over.

I had the honour of knowing Mr. Mohan Lal Grero for some years now. He has helped me in my education immensely. I believe and I know that he is a good man. Not corrupted. Something most politicians have forgotten is that their duty is not to the party but to the people appointed them. If they can not serve the people appointed them by staying in the party it is better to leave it and join a party that is more open and is in a position to implement the policies.
If people voted for him just because if he was in UNP, then I will call that stupidity of the people. Voting should be done based on the policies not on the party a politician belong to.
I voted for him and his policies hoping that he would be able to do something to the education system in Sri Lanka. And I am happy that he left UNP and joined the government.
