Government Minister and National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa says India should not dictate terms to Sri Lanka. He said this responding to a journalist at a media briefing in Colombo today.

He also said the constitution would be changed in three stages, the first being changes made to the presidency.

“The other stages include changes to the electoral system and the formation of a Senate,” he added.

    India is no longer in a position to dictate anything to Sri Lanka. It can only plead with Lanka for whatever they want.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 02:50 PM

    How can they tell us what to do when they have mega problems. They have many insurgencies on there hand and a large portion of India is not under govt control. They have millions of poor people poorer than the poorest SriLankans and still they let those poor people rot and send aid to us. What hypocrisy. Lalith Wije

    I'll like to see what would actually happend if india did?

    Friday, 14 May 2010 09:41 AM

    i doubt it

    Friday, 14 May 2010 09:43 AM

    agreed, but, he should talk through his mouth

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 03:55 PM

    Do not try to fool people making useless remarks.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:16 AM

    Is he the Government Spokesman?

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 04:13 PM

    Mr Weerawanse, Are you confirming that India is Dictating us? You shouldnt even say such words in a forum. Sri lanka is a soverign country. You can say 'No one should interfere in our internal matters or something to that extend' This is purely due to lack of INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIP & DIPLOMACY. This is where Ranil is a master like his ex-colleagues Lalith/Gamini etc. They knew how to talk to the point stylishly and cleverly.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:19 AM

    yes he is the oonly man who can talk

    Friday, 14 May 2010 09:54 AM

    Wimal weerawansa not only betryed JVP but his own party to join government with one of the best ministerial post.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:22 AM

    Wimal, why don't you start dictating terms to India, instead? ha ha.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:23 AM

    Only talk

    Friday, 14 May 2010 04:36 AM

    Governemnt should try to protect friendly reationship with India at any time without giving contreversial statements by using third parties. It sould be a official and diplomatic cohabitaion.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:25 AM

    agree.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 09:57 AM

    Frog in well!

    Friday, 14 May 2010 09:58 AM

    Wimal is a loss cause now. He did well and served well. Now he is just trying to stir some news trying to keep the publicity going.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:31 AM

    We have heard this staement ' Indian Should Not Dictate" from many politicians of this country in the past too. Nothing new

    Friday, 14 May 2010 10:05 AM

    wat about constitutional changes addressing the ethnic problem??????a constitution that created war..thats the serious issue..not presidency

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:34 AM

    What a joker! Unless MR reigns him in now, he'll become another Bogs!!

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:34 AM

    Thanks for spoiling our relationships with neighboring countries.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 10:09 AM

    "Big Brother" a long running story in TV and in SE Asia! Should we worry!

    Friday, 14 May 2010 05:00 AM

    Can Wimal Weerawansa also please stop dictating terms to Sri Lankan politics.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:41 AM

    Yes that is the best he can do. so Talk

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 05:50 PM

    Does he have any evidence of India's dictating any terms to Sri Lanka?

    Friday, 14 May 2010 05:38 AM

    His days are numbered

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 11:57 AM

    Talks something but doing complete opposite.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:01 PM

    Sahodaraya! Why only India? Sri Lanka is a sovereign state. No country should dictate to us.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:15 PM

    They talk a lot behind but when they see face to face they never talk

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:17 PM

    Empty vessels maketh noise

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:18 PM

    what you can do if they dictate terms ?

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:35 PM

    when did he become constitutional minister?

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:41 PM

    The fact is that citizens in SL adore and believe in such statements that in reality are out of context and purpose.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:43 PM

    mouth , harmful for fish!

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:58 PM

    Just for popularity...????

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:09 PM

    "India should not dictate terms to Sri Lanka"... they say this every now and then but when India says something, they obey it...

    just taking the people for a ride only!!

    Friday, 14 May 2010 07:53 AM

    Hi,
    Mostly write against Wimal as useless.He was the person who create a voice against LTTE and line up community for war end solution. Its agreat work and he is apractical patriotic who has engaged with practical politics. JVP idiots and UNP vallentines are writing against him, nothing else.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:10 PM

    no surprise he is chinas man ? so he dont like india to dictate terms.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:17 PM

    Why leave room for India, EU or the UN to dictate?
    Do everything to the civilized world's norm, with regards to the constitution, human rights, press freedom and the minority ethnic communities' rights.
    Lets put behind the past and give it a fresh start Mr. Weerawansa.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:37 PM

    WHEN DID HE APPOINT HIMSELF AS THE SPOKESMAN OF GOSL???????????/

    Friday, 14 May 2010 02:30 AM

    It should have been more appropriate if he stated that no country should dictate terms to Sri Lanka.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:04 AM

    Before "Pacha-ayuda" tells India not to dictate terms to S.L., he should stop dictating to us. He tried to, when he said SF is disqualified to run for Presidency as a citizen not registered to cast his vote. He himself was not registered. The best joke is they say this more often than not.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:11 AM

    Why don't you take wings to India and proclaim your opinion to the Indian officials like a real hero rather than shouting in hiding!

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:59 PM

    WW is the biggest talker, but the poorest worker. How he got the highest manape in Colombo is the biggest Miracle of Asia.

    Thursday, 13 May 2010 02:17 PM

    All comments are not in favor of him. I dont know why?

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:28 AM

    Wimal is the card board Hero of Sri Lanka.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:34 AM

    A Senate - A another set of time wasters and a drain on the government funds.
