Ranil’s exit will be more fearsome than Gota’s: Hirunika

President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s exit from office will be more fearsome than former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s, former MP and Samagi Wanitha Balawegaya Head Hirunika Premachnadra said today.

“Ranil's exit will happen soon and it will be more fearsome than that of former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. He will be removed instantly and may end up in prison,” Ms. Premachandra told a press conference.

“Another aragalaya is on the way as people will begin rising again. Houses of main businessmen will be burnt by the helpless people and all the wealth owned by the rich will grabbed by the poor who are becoming helpless,” she added.

“Grabbing of assets owned by the rich has already begun as with some items from a rich household in Battaramulla a few days ago,” she said.

Ms. Premachandra came out hard against the decision to appoint Premalal Jaysekara as a State Minister and questioned as to how the UNPers welcome this move. “ It was Mr. Jayasekera who was convicted for killing a UNP supporter named Dodangoda at a rally on January 4, 2022 and one wonders as how the UNPers tolerate this move,” she said.

Also she said participation of Mr. Wickremesinghe in the funeral of Queen Elizabeth will not give any benefits to Sri Lanka. (Yohan Perera)

    Bowing down for colonial masters is a SIN.

    Moda Katha Tuesday, 13 September 2022 10:42 PM

    Your father was accused by the people ad a drug lord and as a leader of thugs. You displayed glimpse of it when your thugs abducted a youth in that black defender.

    don Tuesday, 13 September 2022 10:44 PM

    This woman should have been arrested by now

    perera Tuesday, 13 September 2022 11:15 PM

    People might ransack this woman's riches too. Is she that suicidal, one wonders? or just plain stupid

    Ranil R Tuesday, 13 September 2022 11:32 PM

    Ranil is foxy and he is cunning enough how to get away from all troubles and he has indeed faced a lot defeats and failures so we shouldn't underestimate him and his political manipulation.. He is 200times clever than Rajapaksa and he is many time more educated than Rajapaksa . Unlike Rajapaksa he has mastered politics and law . So he do what needs to do when he feel it is appropriate

    Aquarius Tuesday, 13 September 2022 11:42 PM

    RW is a very cunning fox, and he has now tasted power that has eluded him for decades. This is what he has been dreaming all his life but got there under strange circumstances, thanks to the Aragalaya. That is a fact and if the Aragalaya is unlawful, so is his Presidency. People are not deaf and blind anymore and hopefully all these corrupt politicians and businessmen will end up behand bars.

    Naman Wednesday, 14 September 2022 12:49 AM

    Ranil W and Rajapaksas are solidly guarding ( looking after) each other. UNP SLPP and SLFP should be removed as political parties in SL.

    Janaka from Matara Wednesday, 14 September 2022 01:10 AM

    The past has taught enough lessons to listen to Vajira and not Hirunika to know who comes and who goes.

    Mudalali Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:03 AM

    Hirunika is correct. RW and his boys have no idea about what's headed their way. They have ruined the country and made sure that the economy will never be revived. Please don't beg for mercy when it happens.

    Neil Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:50 AM

    I fully agree with you, Hirunika. But, please don't risk your life. Stupid Sri Lankans don't deserve better life. They are born as slaves, live as slaves and want to die as slaves. Please look at the comments made in this column. They are slaves of Rajapaksas.

    vince Wednesday, 14 September 2022 11:46 AM

    I take it you are a foreigner, talking about Sri Lankans from the outside. Whose slave(bitch) are you then as you know so much about being a slave?

    Ram Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:50 AM

    CB Governor said next time there will be blood shed Ranil must understand that he is there to do a job and not help SLPP. He must initiate investigations on Ministers on their assests

    Panduka Dasanayake Wednesday, 14 September 2022 03:12 AM

    Appointing convicted persons to positions of parliamentary office and public service is not new for this dispensation. Recall how a rare, decent and honourable member like the late Rohan Abeygunasekera was sidelined from the Hanguranketa Seaton 2001 to accommodate another low specimen of parliamentarian we have seen! So, lessons from the recent brave expressions of the youth, personified and represented by people like Ms Premachandra, are yet to be learned!

    Nandasena R Wednesday, 14 September 2022 03:47 AM

    When the country is in dire situation where common man can only dream of his next meal, what urgency has the President to attend the funeral of the Queen at such expense at the poor nations coffers? Not withstanding this, SL threw away the Queen as the head of the state way back in 1972 and became a republic. This trip to UK is all a thamashaa for the benefit of the political crook.

    Darma Wednesday, 14 September 2022 05:42 AM

    This woman is creating a messy situation among her own GYPSY CLAN..She is a Uneducated , worthless piece of garbage..! People are not stupid enough to listen to her CRAP..!

    Jan Peiris Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:22 AM

    RANIL thinks as Shadow president with all powers he can SURPRESSED ,HARASS SRILANKANS,the Way he doing it now,But SRILANKANS Their Future is Shattered,only Solution is to PEACEFUL PROTEST To Chase out these very old ROGUE'S Implement prosperous SRILANKA immediately

    S B Lokuge Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:33 AM

    This woman should be caged for insighting violence. Her big mouth should be shut first.

    Kamal Bolawansa Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:50 AM

    Rather than identifying Businessmen they should aim the nasty Potuwa Ministers and MP's who are richest by looting our money.

    Atha Katha Somay Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:52 AM

    True not only robbing the richest businessmen backed by Ranil, but also, they will murder some of them including Rajapakshes' henchmen.

    Kottawa Market - Sunil Aiya Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:54 AM

    True Ranil's life is not guaranteed that is for sure for the ugly deal he is having with Rajapakshe family.

    Meera Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:56 AM

    Go ahead Madam, you are a brave lady, you can lead the show to chase Ranil Wickramasinghe also using the same theory as you did for Gota.

    EMZO Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:59 AM

    Yes because of the high cost of living, shortage of medicines, sky rocketing rates for Electricity, Water and Phones... Ranil has to answer and if he is not going to reverse it, then this time the Aragalaya -PH2 will be very danger.

    TS Wednesday, 14 September 2022 07:11 AM

    Hiru, you deceive our population with your beauty, street drama (hugging Policemen for cameras) and rhetoric. I don't think you have done much than accused of few heinous crimes while you were power. You suit best for your Sajith Uncle, as you are another "Hiscombe" like him. As one mentioned you do not descend from a clean political ancestry.

    Sen Wednesday, 14 September 2022 07:11 AM

    It is true RW won’t feel suffering of down trodden,he decided to visit Liz’s funeral,while here people suffering of hunger but how sincere is Hirunika,her actions may be helpful to reach to the target but she too belong to same set of politicians

    Mizaru Wednesday, 14 September 2022 07:18 AM

    Yes, this is unavoidable unless a fresh mandate is obtained from the people. The present parliament is a mockery.

    Nilanthi Wickramasinha Wednesday, 14 September 2022 07:19 AM

    Why don’t you think about the way you exited after being in the parliament for only five years and try to correct the mistakes you made before thinking about other people’s exit

    Spoilt Brat Wednesday, 14 September 2022 07:23 AM

    It will be like grabbing candy from a child, he will bawl till the sky comes down on our heads!!!!

    Sunil Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:04 AM

    The frustration, resentment and misery of the people are broiling over and increasing rapidly without any end in sight; partly because of the downright stupid actions of this regime and the horrendous suppression of the fundamental rights of the people. Undoubtedly the second aragalaya is close at hand and it will be far more powerful than the first. The biggest mistake was that appointment of a stupid and corrupted guy who had failed five times as the prime minister as president.

    Godaya Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:12 AM

    First learn to behave and talk like a lady without disgracing womanhood. Your father was a drug lord so not much can be expected from you. Better keep your trap shut.

    joseph Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:12 AM

    She is promoting hatred and violence. Signs of desperation as a result of defeat. She surely has exposed herself and lost respect by peace loving people

    Concerned citizen Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:14 AM

    Where were you the so called social worker when the Kolonnawa garbage dump collapsed ??Togehter with your other vociferous friend Marikkar both of you were nowhere to be found .what were you doing other than going around abducting people in state vehicles.You call your self the adopted daughter of the Rajapaksha family so mind your exit from politics others can look after their own exits

    Wealthy Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:15 AM

    Are you planing it? What will happen to your wealth?

    Ravi Jhon Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:16 AM

    Salute the Iron Lady - Its matter of time for the idiots in parliament maximum it's another six months each day is ticking by - there will be General election let the fun begin what Hirunika predicted will happen

    VJ Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:22 AM

    Not everything she said is wrong, she is right about appointing a convicted murderer as a state minister. What justice will the president offer to the families of the victim who was shot and killed in public view. The victim was working for the party of the present president. The entire world is watching. Is Sri Lanka creating a new identity for herself?

    Devaka Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:25 AM

    This woman is instigating violence and should be arrested!

    Surath Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:38 AM

    An absolutely a Horrible woman with no respect for the society and trying create havoc within the community..! She is carrying her disgraceful(late)Father's dirty tactics to get the popularity from her low grade womens group, but sooner or later this notorious useless,good for nothing woman will suffer for her sins and lies..!

    Roshanaly Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:46 AM

    Ranil with so much experience in Politics, so ousting him will not be so easy as Gota.

    Jef Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:08 AM

    Government need to focus on poor and the middle-class almost every family is extremely in danger no food can't pay rent electricity kids expenses becoming major issue for majority no one seems to understand about life style of basic living due to ignorance and poor feelings for sufferes high officials the rich always had the best

    Truth Seeker Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:11 AM

    Is Daily Mirror playing dirty tricks by only publishing negative comments against HP? Even the independent news papers in Srilanka are corrupted.

    Srilanka Observed Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:18 AM

    What Hirunika said is the reality, but paradise papers who has interests will say otherwise.

    johan Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:27 AM

    People chased away UNP to orphanage now they are helpless and trying to leap holding Ranil's legs.And they are shameless as well.

    Rosh SUD Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:29 AM

    She is playing a saint role now and portraying her father also into sainthood. Two drug lords fought in broad daylight with heavy weapons and the one triggered first survived. This woman is is not genuine in aragalaya. She is inciting violence. She should’ve been taken in first and not Damitha A. How come this woman still roaming free while others are behind the bars

    N.M. Perera Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:32 AM

    Look who's talking! A daughter of a drug Lord. First of all, she should learn to behave as a decent lady, not as a basket woman.

    Hema Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:42 AM

    we do not want a lady thug in politics.

    saabir Wednesday, 14 September 2022 09:43 AM

    This statement is enough to arrest this woman

    Rohan Wednesday, 14 September 2022 10:04 AM

    What a foolish statement to make in public, she is giving wrong ideas to people and must be arrested

    Bernard Jayatilake Wednesday, 14 September 2022 10:11 AM

    The incumbent president has created history unprecedented in world politics by snatching victory from the claws of defeat in elections but being able to snatch power thro the votes of majority of M.P.s who have to cling on to him desperately to revive their party hoping to come back to power clobbing together a coalition wih the elephant party. This is total hypocrasy aa democracy and rule-of -law are in the dustbins.

    A Upali Amaranath De Silva Wednesday, 14 September 2022 10:41 AM

    I think this time people will hang and kill you, be careful what you are talking, You only know to go and shout like a vegetable and fish vendor at any aragalaya. We need now first country to survive and to come to normalcy and to finish economic crisis. Why do not you go with you useless leader and do some thing to the country. You all are now jealous of President now. Be at home look after your Husband and kids.

    Surain Wednesday, 14 September 2022 10:55 AM

    When look at the way Ranil is governing the country and the way appointing so many unwanted number of ministers we can see the waste of public tax money

    Mohamed Adham Wednesday, 14 September 2022 10:57 AM

    Iron Lady...

    Mohan Wednesday, 14 September 2022 11:12 AM

    Ranil could be got rid of by next election. The big question is, who are we going to vote for.

    Priyanee Wijesekera Wednesday, 14 September 2022 11:17 AM

    Why is this foul mouthed female trying so hard to prove that she comes from the gutter? We all know it

    Labby Wednesday, 14 September 2022 12:23 PM

    This woman should be arrested for spreading hatred. She was rejected at the polls for a reason.

    Panduka Dasanayake Wednesday, 14 September 2022 12:48 PM

    With slight correction: Appointing convicted persons to positions of parliamentary office and public service is not new for this dispensation.

    anura nanayakkara Wednesday, 14 September 2022 01:19 PM

    This statement given by Hirunika is too dangerous and she should be arrested and her stories should be fully investigated by CID. These types of irresponsible statements should be properly investigated . Women such as HIRUNIKA and Damitha Abeyrathna are just playing for the media to get prominance.

    saliya Wednesday, 14 September 2022 01:20 PM

    this woman also belongs to the same set of politicians that the people want to change

    Ranjith Wednesday, 14 September 2022 01:22 PM

    Those who discarded the UNP at the last elections are the ones that brought this misery upon the 22M citizens who are suffering by voting for the lunatic Gota to power

    Disgusted Wednesday, 14 September 2022 01:45 PM

    The talk reveals the pedigree and level of thinking. If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas. Certainly no genuine love for the country or its people. Just seeking very hard to get some cheap applause from deep within the gutter.

    Rathnavali Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:11 PM

    Let Ranil govern and get us out of this financial predicament. He has done some questionable things, which we do not accept. But we do not know under what circumstances he was compelled to do so. Right now, people should keep calm until the IMF agreement is signed. It is sheer stupidity to pick holes in governance now without concentrating in getting through the financial crisis. Hirunika is like any other politician trying to latch on to a debatable issue and make some noise hoping to gain votes at the next election.

    Samantha Hetti Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:33 PM

    A lot of the previous dissent against the lack of freedom of expression during Gota's time is not muffled through the PTA action against aragalaya youth. Hirunika speaking up is at least a start for moving away from the continued SLPP domination of our society. If an election were to be held today, it likely SLPP (or even UNP) would probably only get a few seats, and might be pushed into the side lines like the SLFP even. Our give year term for parliament is far too long. US House of Congress only two years. Australia and New Zealand lower houses where their Prime Ministers are from, maximum only 3.5 years. Most times terms last only 2.5 to 3 years. We need a complete change of how government terms even happen here for improvements to keep happening.

    “ The Lansi Burgher Gent “ Wednesday, 14 September 2022 02:42 PM

    This soft piece of shit is back, yapping away with her trap open, yet again. From the gutter to the cesspit; here we go again folks. So bankrupt - this one.

    Lankan for unity Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:47 PM

    Super effort from Harunika. She had MP Wajira reacting like unsettle baby with her mentioning his name even. We need all sorts of personalities in politics, to keep the rascals honest, and Harunika today seems to be more attention getting for the SJB and most of the SJB MPs in parliament together.

    Noel Samara Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:45 PM

    There is a thorough lack of social justice discussed about in our country. Especially in relation to all the wrong doings by MPs. Glad to see Ms. Premachandra speaking about these matters. We will always be a backwards country while matters like she mentioned continue to happen.

    Uali Wednesday, 14 September 2022 08:48 PM

    Certainly RW will send you where he sent Damitha,hopefully he would kind enough to you in his this old age not send to Batalanda
