UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekara announcing his resignation as an MP said he would contest the elections to the NWP on the UPFA ticket. He said he believed that freedom in the UNP was under severe threat.
Saying that he was joining the Government not as a disappointed person but as a victorious person, Mr. Jayasekera claimed, "My leader is Mahinda Rajapaksa". ►WATCH

Is these so called politicians speaking from mouth or,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The only difference between Dayasiri and Ranil is that, Dayasiri openly acknowledged MR as his leader while Ranil has not explicitly acknowledged it.

Now he is out of death threats and any other form of danger.This is not a surprise because he has told that the President is his role model.He was followed when he was supporting the General.Now he can sing songs for the Presidents at parties since he doesn't have any other job to do.His brother in the field of music too can get some favor from the government.

I think it a good move. Instead of waiting till UNP come on to power he can do something for the people. Good luck for you.

Kabaragoya becomes Thalagoya for shameless Dayasiri.

Ranil the loser

1`00M commi8ssion money given to Dayasiri
doratupala Wednesday, 24 July 2013 10:38 AM
UNP did not treated Dayasiri well. However the move by HIM is not the best of political moves. He will just be another politician under the UPFA, unlike the leader type figure he was in the UNP
Vaz Wednesday, 24 July 2013 01:21 PM
Your leaders are money and power.
Thambiya Tudawe Wednesday, 24 July 2013 10:38 AM

unchikun Wednesday, 24 July 2013 10:45 AM
Do not blame him. These people were ridiculed by RW and his stoogers. Waiting for the vibrant statements from Ranil and Athanayake. Is Ranil in Sri Lanka?
Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:26 PM
"Kanna Hithunama Kabaragoyath Thalagoya wage penawa" Shameless fellow, singing for his supper.

i think the price is right.
JAC Thursday, 25 July 2013 10:04 AM
IF I AM DAYASIRI I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THIS STEP EARLIER. MOST OF PEOPLE IN SRILANKA WOULD DO THE SAME BEFORE HIM. WHY BLAME HIM? HE IS HUMAN BEING. HE HAS DONE A LOT MORE THAN AVERAGE SRI LANKAN.
