    No one here debating about King Dutugemunu or William. Its about a man suffering from mental illness.

    Mark Wilson Friday, 29 April 2011 01:05 PM

    wow,
    its sure he will get 10 Oscars in future....

    FRANCIS BENEDICT Friday, 29 April 2011 01:05 PM

    What is wrong in a Minister acting? Shurely he is not doing anything wrong. Why is some people so excited about it?

    Amal Friday, 29 April 2011 01:06 PM

    HAHAHA king.. monaking da... gon nambek wage hahaha!!!

    Amal Friday, 29 April 2011 01:24 PM

    RD Friday, 29 April 2011 02:28 PM

    King Ellara must have invaded Anuradapura in 200 BC. Only king ellara died in that War. Where are his men and their decendants? Are they still in Anuradapura?

    Punchi Putha Friday, 29 April 2011 02:15 PM

    There is no work to do as a minister, atleast he is trying something, we should appreciate it

    Fairose Friday, 29 April 2011 02:43 PM

    Correct your figures, Definitely not 185,000. It maybe only 12333 people by 15 times. Each voting 15 times or stuffing the ballot box by 'chandi kama'.

    MM Friday, 29 April 2011 02:44 PM

    IN ONE WORD... DISGRACE!!!

    I Hussein Saturday, 30 April 2011 08:17 AM

    Not 'we' maybe you need these kind of Apes.

    Fairose Friday, 29 April 2011 02:52 PM

    I thought Dutugemunu is Tall, Strong and Handsome. Dont you think we make a mockery by allowing this ugly duckling to play the role of a great leader in sri lankan history.

    Jix Friday, 29 April 2011 09:38 AM

    ok... its time to be concerned...and maybe even start believing in end times.... something radically wrong with this country... and the world!

    Insult to a great King of SL. Look at the faces of those people, they look like going to commit a criminal act.

    Elara Friday, 29 April 2011 05:04 PM

    He is an insult to the nation being a minister. What is the value of him?

    Ice Mama Friday, 29 April 2011 09:22 PM

    What a sorry looking king. Dutu Gemunu was a hero and a man of stature, not a punk like the bogus doctor Mervyn Silva.

    mervyn perera Friday, 29 April 2011 11:35 PM

    Hail Mervyn Dutu Gemunu Raja Thumani. Our king of Thugs and rogues and criminals. Our country can now be really proud of Dutugemunu..What an insult. The country is heading for disaster.

    This really goes to show what a joke the Ministers really are. This man is a disgrace to humanity

    Grumpy Saturday, 30 April 2011 04:53 AM

    Above the Crowd Friday, 29 April 2011 12:11 PM

    Is that Dutu's water bottle in the picture.? I am sure he must have a had a mobile phone to make love talk to Kuweni.

    jotipala Saturday, 30 April 2011 04:58 AM

    He looks like the "Gahalaya" or "Wadaka rala" in kings time.
