“Don’t wake the lion” – Mervyn
Minister Mervyn Silva said that South India should not ‘awaken the lion and injure itself,’ referring to the recent events in Tamil Nadu.
“We have a good relationship with Tamil Nadu and our president in all his wisdom will solve this issue. But I’m telling South India that it should not awaken the sleeping lion and injure itself,” he said.
Referring to the current fast by South Indian actors and film directors against Sri Lanka, Mr. Silva said that if they were true heroes they would fast unto death.
“Heroes would fast unto death, not give up midway through the fast. If they fast halfway then, of course, they are slimy people,” he said.
Speaking further, the minister said that he did not understand the mentality of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram.

Iam a Singhalese. I am born as a buddhist. What I can say without any doubt is I do not know how a brainless dumb like you got a position of power or why M.R. wants to keep you even in the parliment. Diplomacy, being able to choose words and being able to foresee are essential skills of a politician. You have none.
Hon Dr Mervyn does not need any of the qualities you refer to in your comment.
Hon Dr Mervyn is a man of the people, a man with natural leadership qualities, inborn and nurtyred.
He has given notice of the Sinhala Buddhist lion awakening to face the threat posed by LTT flag bearers in TN.
Hon Dr Mervyn is a moderate in SL political leadership; his passion for serving the nation and its citizens, is immeasurable.
Well said’ Indra ‘not you idiot,’Lahiru’,either you blind,deaf or an agent of ” Mervyn “.
Dr. heal thyself, please concentrate first on clearing your name of the accusations directed to you; why on earth do you go out of your way to put dung on glass of milk.
