I defeated Mahinda Rajapaksa- SF

18 October 2015 01:45 pm - 21     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


While claiming that there is no good governance as expected in the country, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka claimed that he is the one who defeated former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“There is no Yahapalanaya as expected by the public. If the Government wants to go ahead with the path that the people expected, it (Government) should defeat the supporters who were with Mahinda Rajapaksa in the previous regime,” Fonseka said while addressing a party meeting in Batticaloa.

He also said that his Democratic Party will contest the forth coming Provincial Council election alone.

“I am the one, who defeated Mahinda Rajapaksa, but still some of his supporters are with the incumbent Government and they should be defeated as well. If I could defeat him, there is no big deal defeating his goon,” he added. (Jauffer Khan)

    Iam watching every turn of election and government of Sri Lanka from the USA my opinion is that Dr, Hon.Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka should be the President of Sri Lanka With Anura Dissanayake as the Prime Minister,so that the Rajapaksa Family Swindlers of the peoples money will be"hung by thers their legs",unike the "YAPALANAA Government who are Favouring these Scoundrels.

    Sapu Monday, 19 October 2015 02:35 PM

    most of the work was done by RW and MS. SF is only a minor character

    Ha ha the man who betrayed his commander, the same commander who went out of his way against world powers to protect the armed forces. You deserve exactly this Mr 5 stars.

    Shehan Monday, 19 October 2015 11:46 AM

    pathetic that this man still does not understand that it was ranil that rode on to power on his back

    You and Gnanasara are both sides of the same coin...voters rejected both of you outright so enough of bla bla bla

    hmm Monday, 19 October 2015 10:58 AM

    What an immature person!

    Wele Vidane Monday, 19 October 2015 08:40 AM

    You said same thing after the LTTE defeated also. Well done.

    Mohan Monday, 19 October 2015 08:18 AM

    Dear Mr Fonseka,I am not sure on what basis you claim that you defeated Mahinda. Its true he is not in power however, it is due to his own fault and the people wanted a change. The number of votes you got is what you seriously deserve. The votes you got during previous presidential election was a vote against Mahindha and NOT FOR Sarath Fonseka. Now that you have the Field Marshal title please try grow up. In my view you never defeated LTTE (it was the west, India and Gota who did the job). Ranil made you the Trojan horse and you never realised it. Even now you act and talk like small child living in lala land.

    Horri Jimonis Monday, 19 October 2015 07:53 AM

    If you want to wipe out MR and his henchmen, then join with RW.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 19 October 2015 07:47 AM

    You are correct Sir. You defeated MR long before MS defeated. MR kept the former EC under his jaws and twisted your victory.

    Goliwog Sunday, 18 October 2015 08:39 PM

    Oops! I was not aware the SF defeated MR. I thought it was the great work of MS and Chandrika that brought MR downfall. I think it is difficult to defeat MR with a vote base of around 30.000. The war song is now out of date. Now we have to get used to a new tune, that is development (not just roads) with international support to give our people a better standard of living.
