    SF is a destroyer. SF is a spy undertaken a contract to destroy SJB

    Be a Gentleman Monday, 19 February 2024 01:03 PM

    SF should be a gentleman

    Shameful Monday, 19 February 2024 09:14 PM

    If the Field Marshal has some dignity left in him he should have resigned, without seeking court order to engage in cheap politics. Damn Shame. Go and enjoy your retired life with the state pension you are getting.

    Neomal Tuesday, 20 February 2024 11:48 PM

    If you consider yourself smart and strong why don't you go and start a party. This behavior of criticism and then getting court orders to stick with them is disgusting.

    johan Monday, 19 February 2024 12:22 PM

    We can't understand why SL courts interfere in inner party problems.It should be left to the party decision.Sl courts have too much outstanding cases, better action must be taken to close those cases early.

    Jayantha Monday, 19 February 2024 01:06 PM

    Well said. People will loose faith in these institution very soon. They drag on property related matters for ages and then sc has to solve the issues. Here they are wasting time on a position appointed by a party leader. Former corrupted slc board also protected in a similar way. Looks like the legal system specially the lower courts need intelligent individuals as judges.

    Waco Monday, 19 February 2024 12:23 PM

    Sajith is cutting his own grave. He will never ever stand a chance of becomes by the result dent of Sri Lanka . Therefore he is for profit st Lo I g election’s always . He is supporting Ranil and Rajapakses.

    L Jaya Monday, 19 February 2024 12:28 PM

    There is a famous sayings in Sinhala, ange indan kanakanawa also atha deepuekwa harpakanawa He want to damage the SJB image and has fear of getting nominations elsewhere. Once get elected he will support RW. This is his cunning tactics. He is not having clean conscience, corrupt, his wife runs a luxury car without paying leasing monthly cost.

    slcitizen Monday, 19 February 2024 12:30 PM

    Trying to stay with a loosing camp or a winning camp..??

    Dinesh Monday, 19 February 2024 12:44 PM

    Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka should leave these SJB morons and join the NPP

    johan Monday, 19 February 2024 01:48 PM

    NPP will not take Fonseka type people.There are enough Majors Generals to uplift that party

    Problem Creater Monday, 19 February 2024 01:56 PM

    Where ever he goes, he creates problems. Better not to join NPP.

    Surain Monday, 19 February 2024 12:52 PM

    Sack him from the party membership sF is a destroyer of the SJB

    sam Monday, 19 February 2024 12:59 PM

    Why SF wants to remain in a sinking ship?

    Jayantha Monday, 19 February 2024 01:03 PM

    Party leader appoints these positions. Why waste time and public money by this kind of thing by the court.cant these courts use the precious time to solve major problems. You are paid by public funds not pvt money. People will loose faith in courts very soon and judges may even experience similar situation to that of politicians unless these matters are corrected. Dont waste time and money of people. If you cannot solve a simple matter please go home.

    Anthony Monday, 19 February 2024 01:08 PM

    DONT BLAME ANYONE SAJITH SHOULD TAKE THE FULL BLAME SINCE THE SJB IS A ONE MANS SHOW WITH ONLY KIRIELLA TALKING RUBBISH. PITY ON THEM, MORE WILL LEAVE.

    Tonga Monday, 19 February 2024 01:10 PM

    This is because no other party would ever touch him. He is a serpent and a vindictive person.

    Jeanne Monday, 19 February 2024 04:54 PM

    And how is this different from every other politician in Sri Lanka today? Don't forget that he would have been in power ages ago were it not for the Rajapakse's rigging the votes when he was clearly ahead. Guns and money are more powerful than a good politician. And everyone commenting here knows that so let's move on - nothing to see here.

    Bandu Monday, 19 February 2024 01:35 PM

    If he is a gentleman and true to himself, he must not criticise SJB. If he has reasons and disagreements he must either solve them by discussion or leave the party. hat is this nonsense to be in the party by force of Court action.

    Voter Monday, 19 February 2024 01:54 PM

    This self-absorbed egotist is paid to derail SJB campaign…

    Sokrates Monday, 19 February 2024 02:08 PM

    Now the court will also be allowed to play in the SJB kindergarten.

    Volker Metzger Monday, 19 February 2024 02:37 PM

    Sarath Fonseka is undoubtedly Sri Lanka's best presidential candidate! He combines all the qualities and abilities to become a great president!!! Premadasa would be unsuitable for high state office in every respect!!! What remains a mystery to me is why a man like Fonseka, who has done extraordinary things for the country, still associates himself with such a party with such a party leader!!! Basically, as a strategic thinker, he knows that a decisive victory, and that means a real majority, cannot be achieved with the SJB! He should look for majorities that suit his personality and character outside of this party! Can Sri Lanka politically do without such a man if the country's typical problem areas are to be permanently eliminated and a more hopeful future is to be opened up for the next generation!!!

    NIHAL DHARMATILEKE Monday, 19 February 2024 02:55 PM

    SF should tell the SJB that he is stepping down from the portfolio which he is holding so the SJB can take the decision to keep or let go of SF do not forget that he is not a foot soldier

    Be Fair Monday, 19 February 2024 03:10 PM

    whoooooooo Sajith and SJB

    Resign if Can’t agree on Policies Monday, 19 February 2024 03:40 PM

    If can’t agree with your party or boss, just resign. It’s not end of the world for leaving a struggling party with poor leadership!

    Dan Monday, 19 February 2024 04:35 PM

    This man has no where to go. Started with MR/GR, then JVP, then his own party with Wijedasa, then Yahapalana, now being expelled from SJB. Looks like a powerful person is pulling strings behind him to shame SJB.

    No one can work with big ego SF Wednesday, 21 February 2024 08:43 PM

    The people who voted for SF are fools. Along with the idiots who voted for SJB as whole.

    Tissa Fernando Monday, 19 February 2024 07:57 PM

    Based on this development, we can easily understand that Sarath Fonseka was not welcome by NPP. Therefore he is fighting now to possibly remove Sajith from the leadership. Sf wants to contest presidential election hoping that he would win.

    Hudson Tuesday, 20 February 2024 08:10 AM

    He will never be appointed as presidential candidate. SJBiesr must be crazy to do so. Someone like Harsha is 1000 times better than SF the lunatic. SJB is Sajith Sajith is SJB. Sajith has the best chance of wining the precedency as well from all candidates as well.

    Tissa Fernando Tuesday, 20 February 2024 10:15 AM

    @Hudson, if you think Sajith is good for President then you must be one of his supporters waiting to Cash in if he wins.

    Yehiya Zavahir Monday, 19 February 2024 10:20 PM

    SF is gentleman. Congratulations

    Kevin Tuesday, 20 February 2024 02:49 AM

    Sajith trying his best to relocate SF to Ranil's camp. Harin and Rajapaksas in Ranil camp will either fallout over SF or lose faith in Ranil if he takes SF. SJB also knows that the international community is not pleased with SF. May be SF should join NPP.

    Hudson Tuesday, 20 February 2024 03:09 AM

    It’s Sad party cannot take a decision on its affairs based on disciplinary grounds. SF knows he has no where to go and no one will accept this ungrateful man with multiple personality disorder. He thought he was a lion before and now acting like a fox to cling into party and positions. This man fills with hatred and poison. Sajith should kick him out ASAP.

    Why fool Fonseka want high posts in SJB, when SJB reject him from such Tuesday, 20 February 2024 06:51 AM

    SJB leadership only want Fonseka as MP and party member. He is lacking judgement to keep high post. He even caused defection of Harin Fernando after he threw bad man Fonseka weight around as Chairman during rally.

    Wijebahu Tuesday, 20 February 2024 08:06 AM

    @Volker Metzge. your insight of Sri Lankans politics and candidates is very poor. SFs time is up and He was given ample opportunities to show his political maturity. but He was failed to become better politician and actually He keeps going backwards. he would never have been a good president as I earlier though as well. He is a person full of hatred and poison. wherever he goes he poisons the team and the environment. He was a man who completely screwed up his own chances to become the president by bringing an unnecessary flight fag issue. he did this to attack Gota and he was with full of hate that he could not even realize it would affect his campaign negatively. Sajith is 100 times better for a president than this crazy man and most of the candidates available right now.

    Adwani Tuesday, 20 February 2024 10:25 AM

    Sarath failed to respect a person who made him Field Marshal and now fighting in SJB. It is highly doubtful whether SJB can solve the economic problems, already Sajith failed to takeover when offered. Si it is better to dissolve the party and co-operate with Ranil.

    Kingsley Wickramapala Wednesday, 21 February 2024 08:51 AM

    My advice to both parties is to get their act together for the sake of party welfare. Both parties are acting like jack asses. If Mr. Fonseka is not happy with party decisions, then gracefully go somewhere else. Sajith also doesn’t have the right to threaten Mr. Fonseka with disciplinary action .

    Anthony. R Wednesday, 21 February 2024 01:22 PM

    Soldier boys good at winning wars,and not for running a Nation or Government. Go enjoy your retirement man.

    wickrama wijayasiri Thursday, 22 February 2024 07:54 PM

    Sarath is a 'Wild Horse' granted, but he appears to be the least corrupt politician around in the Parliament. All Sri Lankans owe him for his courage, tactics, and the tenacity which stopped the LTTE terrorists. Sad the politicians do not have the same to address the needs and complaints of our Tamil brotheren.

    Volker Metzger Friday, 23 February 2024 10:39 AM

    Wijayasiri, as you can see from my comment, I share your basic comment about Fonseka! He would be a president who would fight the root evils of Sri Lankan politics! Only a man of his stature and character, together with a selected team, can succeed! He also has the experienced eye and human knowledge of a victorious military to select such a team! There is no doubt that he would also be a president who could provide new and correct impulses with regard to overcoming the stagnating “reconciliation process” between Tamils ​​and Sinhalese! He also knows the Tamil people and knows about their needs and legitimate demands! Fonseka is a man of the whole people, the Sinhalese as well as the Tamils!!!
