    Use a spell checker dude. Typical pohottuwa illiterate.

    Rohana Wijeeweera Monday, 05 February 2024 08:10 PM

    I think Spirit of Wijeveera was also in the meeting. What a turn around of New JVP-AKD . Hmm Sad . Just get power at any cost to the JVP Philosophy .

    Lion Monday, 05 February 2024 08:12 PM

    RAW may have brief the top hierarchy of the Indian government , that NPP is coming to power.

    Ranaweera Bandara Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:39 AM

    India does not want another Cuba or Venezuela at their door step which will have a huge influx of refugees. this is the outcome if JVP manages to get the power. but it will never happen as 3% party will never get 47% more. which means they have to collect over 6 million additional votes. only in dreams it is going to happen.

    Voter Monday, 05 February 2024 08:22 PM

    Clear telltale signs of what’s going to happen in Sri Lanka….

    Rasika Monday, 05 February 2024 08:51 PM

    Right timing..... all the best!!!

    Tissa Fernando Monday, 05 February 2024 08:57 PM

    So, they are giving him pre warning, they are telling him, " Anura brother, don't do anything that is putting India second. You do as we say so you get to stay in power" Ha ha ha, that is the reality of politics . AKD will be controlled by the Chinese American lady and the man in this photo. Good for him, he will probably hide or burn those files that he has been holding onto for years.

    Curious Monday, 05 February 2024 09:05 PM

    Interesting developments

    Lasantha Jayasinghe Monday, 05 February 2024 09:07 PM

    It seems like India thinks it is a forgone conclusion that AKD is the next president of Sri Lanka. RW MR is just history. In the Indian neighborhood, US takes the clues from India. Watch how US follows from this

    Viceroy Monday, 05 February 2024 09:32 PM

    A JVP victory is imminent. Even regional forces are feeling it.

    Ruwan Tuesday, 06 February 2024 09:21 AM

    ...and the elections are more than 6 months away hahaha. I'm sure all this is Ranil's plan.

    Julia's puppet Anura Monday, 05 February 2024 09:36 PM

    @Lasantha Jayasinghe, it is the other way around, India take orders from US who through Julia

    Observer Monday, 05 February 2024 09:39 PM

    All governments since 1948 pave the way to the success of JVP. Most of us who never wished left wings come to power, including me will vote for them.There will be millions……

    Sam Silva Monday, 05 February 2024 10:50 PM

    Be sure what you wish for.

    Tissa Fernando Tuesday, 06 February 2024 08:03 AM

    Unfortunately that will be the end of current Sri Lanka. JVP too were responsible for the current situation because they destroyed the youth since 1970s. They destroyed the positive mindsets of the youth. Then from 1977 , JR created the corrupt government and the civil war which went on for 30 years without any solution. Rajapakshas ended the war and carried out massive development projects but they robbed the country. People think that JVP will be different but based on their destructive mentality I am not sure about it.

    Check what their methods are to blow up transformers?

    Kabir Hashim Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:15 AM

    Anura is in an Indian rasam.

    Keep the good work up NPP Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:53 AM

    Obviously the Indian intelligence in Sri Lanka know what's happening. They know that the other parties are dead and burried.

    Build the nation Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:54 AM

    Great work NPP , you will win in a land slide.

    Bandu Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:56 AM

    Vote for this idiot and guaranteed to make you even more economically worse off than today.

    Jude Tuesday, 06 February 2024 03:57 AM

    India knows AKD gonna be the next president of SL. They want to have a mutual understanding between the neighbours,!!

    Priya Tuesday, 06 February 2024 04:08 AM

    This person hiding behind the name Tissa Fernando is a nut case.

    wickrama wijayasiri Tuesday, 06 February 2024 04:15 AM

    You are all right in the opposition, digging up dirt. Governing a country is a different issue. Heaven forbid, If you get elected, it will reinforce the fact that Sri Lankans have short memories. I have lived through the early 70's and the 80's, through all the terror! Leopards do not change spots.

    dana Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:24 AM

    This sequence of activities is not make Other politicians happy but jealous, so they might read the situation as ‘unnecessary foreign interference by India

    Robin Banks Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:27 AM

    Anura is invited to meet with foreign dignitaries, while Ranil has to plead for meetings. That is the difference between the two. So please use you vote wisely this time my friends, because there may not be another

    AJ Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:37 AM

    In imminent NPP rule in near future, what would be life of public, how it would affect life of people.

    Fred Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:39 AM

    Enlightening him on how to be a colony after 76 years of independence or a Big Brother advising a little Brother. Either way I see India in the box seat.When we are constantly reminded of their benevolence what else can tiny SL do. Plenty in my view if only they can stop their infighting and concentrate on developing their economy. With their own efforts not running for foreign aid and investment at every turn.These things come with strings attached, detrimental in the long term creates a dependence when what we need is SELF RELIANCE how they developed in the first place .And centralizing in Colombo has not worked. Need economic freedom for provinces .That way at least some parts of the country will develop for others to follow

    Mahila Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:49 AM

    Let the DAY of RECKONING DAWN!!?? REALITY SCREENED by DUSK!!!??? Let’s wait patiently – The informed VERDICT OF VOTERS, based NOT on EMOTION, PECUNIARY OR OTHERWISE; RESURFACE as a NATION brimmed with MISSION, PASSION, VISION and EMANCIPATED VIGOUR in encompassing UNITY with DIVERSITY!?

    Kapila Tuesday, 06 February 2024 05:59 AM

    In 1980s JR predicted JVP will come to power in 20 years and that was the reason for him to start communal violence in 1983 and ban JVP putting the blame on them for the violence. JR would be watching from hell what is happening in Sri Lanka currently.

    Ms Allison Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:12 AM

    All those JVP supporters and NPP etc.. keep dreaming ! Let's face it you'll never come into power as the people of Sri Lanka are now a lot more wiser. You can see AKD was very uncomfortable even wearing a suit. Do they even know how to negotiate with international partners ? Whether you like it or not you need a gentleman like RW as president to win the confidence of the international community and get the country out of this mess. Truth hurts !

    Banda Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:28 AM

    The truth is, India never invited them. They have requested a meeting with them. Then Dr. Jayashankar sent an invitation. That is okay. But they try to mislead the public; it's a sign of their acceptance of the next government. What a bunch of clowns!

    Hudson Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:30 AM

    These guys even protested against the suwasariya free ambulance service given by the India compiling fabricated lies like its a part of RAW intelligence service. JVPiers are Marxist hypocrites and can never be trusted.

    Punchi Thusithaya Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:41 AM

    Assurance that no punishing of thieves and continue. Protection of Ranil and Mahinda also confirmed. This country would have been better off had JVP not terrorized Provincial councils act, JR signed with Rajiv.

    Bernard Jayatilake Tuesday, 06 February 2024 07:24 AM

    Is he the de-facto head of this country to start visiting foreign countries to discuss crucial matters with foreign leaders?

    Anura Jayantha Tuesday, 06 February 2024 07:42 AM

    First of all get these crooks to answer to the people who have been victimised by those who ruled this country..make them.held accountable..

    Karu Tuesday, 06 February 2024 08:16 AM

    @ Lion, You are spot on. The Indian Leadership knows very well what is happening in SL. Besides, the NPP Geo policies are transparent and clear though the former JVP`s were unpredictable. Sadly the Govt`s and the main opposition's policies tend to be erratic and tainted with corruption and self interest and only thinly camouflaged with phony national/global concerns.

    Gabriella Tuesday, 06 February 2024 09:22 AM

    The JVP has made several “twists and turns” in its political adventurism; mostly to the detriment of the nation. However, it remains the only alternative to the corrupt political establishment. Wether by lack of opportunity or sheer integrity, one man in the party has always impressed with his steadfastness. That man, is Tilvin Silva. His intellect and skills could have guaranteed more lucrative pastures had he joined the Weerawansa band wagon. The man has however stood firm to his ideological beliefs and impressed everyone with his commitment. If this is indicative of the overall commitment of the party hierarchy to National Interest rather than Self Interest, the party is now worthy of serious consideration. And a personal plea to Tilvin : Please don’t become as corrupt as the “DOGS” that have ruined our beautiful country. Don’t let “opportunity” be a temptation. It is the fervent desire of every citizen in this nation to be able to say, “There is one honest man in Sri Lanka.”

    Ramakrishnan Tuesday, 06 February 2024 10:48 AM

    He must be good with the Hindi Language..?

    melville perera Thursday, 08 February 2024 05:52 AM

    with its 3% votes of the past it has slowly and steadily made vast progressive political thinking strides to make it a force to be reckoned with and recognised as such to make India invite a delegation from the NPP led by AKD now making sensational news, keenly watched by USA and China no doubt The NPP would and could be the new SYSTEM CHANGE in the offing
