    Ranil. No shame. Use tax payers money to do his next election while poor people dying without food. Shame on you Ranil.

    Another stooge with little or no IQ as Advisor? No need to imagine where the country is heading!

    Ram Thursday, 07 December 2023 02:12 AM

    Mr President, Don't you have enough advisors behind you. These advisors are paid from our money that you handle. You bait the politicians to get their support. You will lose hands down if a Presidential election is held

    Steve Thursday, 07 December 2023 02:15 AM

    What a joke. This has not happened for 75 years. An election coming soon?

    A political appointment to get votes in the next Presidential Election. It's better to appoint a naattamy from Petta Market than this useless fellow.

    Lion Thursday, 07 December 2023 04:57 AM

    What advice this man could give to this person representing 131 in the parliament. This is how the incumbent waste our money. He doesn’t have any feelings for suffering masses of this country due to economic difficulties

    Nihal S Thursday, 07 December 2023 05:38 AM

    Bribe for crossing-over

    DOT Thursday, 07 December 2023 05:55 AM

    Focusing 2024 goals! Way to go!

    Ranjith Thursday, 07 December 2023 06:04 AM

    Indian Tamils are divided into many political parties and groups and with lot of differences integration of all tamils under one umbrella even not possible under Vadival he controls only few voters

    Lumbini Thursday, 07 December 2023 06:14 AM

    How many more advisors you need?

    Joshua Thursday, 07 December 2023 06:34 AM

    The jumping frog has been recognised for the long jumps

    Sambo Thursday, 07 December 2023 07:00 AM

    Name sake advisors appointed by the hundreds and see the state of the country. We have a country withing a country. The rich roughs and the poor.

    Grace Thursday, 07 December 2023 07:01 AM

    Finally, the cat has come out of the bag.

    Buddhist Thursday, 07 December 2023 08:28 AM

    What a joke, Ranil is collecting votes. Upcountry Tamils should not vote for this monkey politician who has jumped from party to party.

    sobers Thursday, 07 December 2023 08:31 AM

    Another Political appointment, waste of tax payers maoney.

    Waco Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:08 AM

    Ranil could not plan any economic development projects. Now doing some thing else to remain in power. Could not convince by doing any productive work , hence doing every thing possible to confuse every one.

    Natalie Nanayaka Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:09 AM

    Let's hope the JVP comes into power soon so that we get rid of all these lowlife scumbags.

    VRAJ Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:10 AM

    MR RW, HOW MANY ADVISERS DO YOU HAVE? SO, YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT TO GOVERN THE COUNTRY????

    cineha Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:19 AM

    The comedy at most. Its Ranil who Called Vadivel Suresh "pissaa" in parliament during a verbal clash in the recent past.

    Nihal Amarasekera Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:43 AM

    integration of Hill Country Tamils into Sri Lankan society, long felt, yet shouldn’t be a gimmick

    Upcountry Citizens Needs Urgent assistance Thursday, 07 December 2023 09:50 AM

    Hope better living standards for the upcountry citizens with his nomination

    Waco Thursday, 07 December 2023 10:04 AM

    For Ranil to remain in power, Tax-Payer’s hard earn money is being very lavishly spending.

    Sunil Thursday, 07 December 2023 10:49 AM

    How nice can I also get a job like this. I am a PhD from London and had to work hard to get a position.How nice in the 'Miracle of Asia' you can get great positions that one doesn't deserve by political patronage.God bless all

    Russel Harmmer Thursday, 07 December 2023 12:03 PM

    Oh my God.... this fellow is also wearing a suit? Now there is no value for suits every Tom and Harry is wearing suits.

    M. Obeysekera (attorney-at-law) Thursday, 07 December 2023 12:05 PM

    If Ranil gets advice from these cheap fellows who does not even know how to write his name in English, he has to shut down his office soon.

    Jude Thursday, 07 December 2023 12:09 PM

    In SL for money you can buy anything, everything and anyone!! Yeah. Just ask Vadivel!!!

    ANTON Thursday, 07 December 2023 12:18 PM

    NOW THAT HE IS GETTING MORE AND MORE DESPERATE, WE WILL SEE A LOT MORE OF THESE BOGUS POLITICIAL APPOINTMENTS WITH THE GENERAL ELECTION LOOMING NEXT YEAR. EVERYBODY SHOULD MAKE IT THEIR MISSION TO SPREAD THE WORD AND ELECT A NEW CAPABLE LEADER.

    True Lankan Thursday, 07 December 2023 01:01 PM

    I had an inch of hope for Ranil, now it is over

    Mohamed Burhan Thursday, 07 December 2023 01:17 PM

    At times Leader of a Party does not listen nor want to understand the difficulty of the people in his area and simply ignores.If so some cross over to the Govt. to get some assistance to his electorate/area people or to this politicians betterment.This is happening after 1977 and cannot be stopped

    Raj Thursday, 07 December 2023 04:06 PM

    He is an MP a government job and gets a salary. So this adviser job is a second government Job. Can anyone hold two government Jobs and get two salaries. How about conflict of interest?

    Royalist Thursday, 07 December 2023 05:14 PM

    I bet the next Presidential advisor is Mervyn Kukula Silva.

    Jayantha Thursday, 07 December 2023 05:21 PM

    Lol.RW one time a famous guy with gonawla sunil the underworld rapist. Then famous bank robber with mahendran rogue family,next with asias most corrupt family pakshas and now becoming even more famous with frogs.

    Cherath Thursday, 07 December 2023 06:15 PM

    I see this appointment as a flag for those on the fence to join Ranil. Ranil may have been in politics since 1977, but needing dozens of advisers from all corners justifies his terrible dearth in just about everything. We Sri Lankans should hang our heads in shame, despite our so called IQ levels and literacy.

    Waco Friday, 08 December 2023 11:06 AM

    Gonawala Sunil was made a Justice Of Peace. A rapist and a Thug. Ranil’ Buddies.
