Oh no no! We don’t want you any more. We had enough of you and your senile mate Ranil’s stupidity About time you retire from politics and ware a “amuday” and go back to a paddy field and work as a “goviya” which is more suited to you. .
No question under the constitution he can contest but should curtail his benfits as MP, already enjoying as the retired President. He will be a another story for media.
Oh no, I hope the people of Polonnaruwa has more intelligence than to vote for this Pambaya of a Prez we had, the one who brought down our nation to the pits by allowing last year’s Easter Sunday Muslim terror attack to happen. He was a Commander in Chief, the Defense Minister and it’s pathetic to see how this misfit appears to go not only scott free of any accountability for that disaster, but how he was given a handsome handshake reward by the equally incompetent Ponil’s and his sidekicks!
Dear brother Ranjith you are contradicting the statement of Robert Knox. He clearly stated that Sinhala Farmer is even suitable for become a king after washing the mud. Now you say this back boneless hopeless good for nothing ‘pambaya’ to become a ‘Goviya’ or farmer. Remember this guy was asked to run for the presidency against MR by Chandrika (satellite) because they all knew he is a real ‘pambaya’ and they can do any damn thing (to change the constitution, pass resolutions, curtail executive presidential power, etc.). I do not think even the voters in Polonaruwa prefer him.
he will be a good companion for cardinal malcom Fernando who appeared to have put all the blame on the UNP when the blame should be on Gotababaya and Mahinda Rajapaksa, as such what the Cardinal should do is to say meaculp meaculpa meaya maxima culpa and retire as a prince of the church also bearing in mind the saying give unto god what belongs to god and give unto czar what belongs czar this means what belongs to god means in spirutual things we Catholics will listen to what our spiritual leader say but in all other things we wil tell him to go to hell
Why should the blame for Easter 2019 incident be placed on our most patriotic brothers, MR & GR?
They are top patriots our Nation has had for over 70 years.
In fact, the Yahapalana messy-fellows, including the Moda-Dasa and his comrades will soon be taught a lesson at the Parliamentary Elections where Ponil and Modadasa-led UNP faction will gain only less than 5 seats.
This will give Constitutional Power to the R Family Clan to rule the Nation for the rest of the century.
If someone blame MR and GR for Easter massacre it shows the inefficiency of Ponil & Sira Government supported by Muslim parties, TNA and JVP. Again, those who were involved in that regime should not ask voters of Sri Lanka to send them again to Diyawannawa. With power, credible intelligence supplied by India Ponil et al couldn’t save those innocent victims and stop the terrorists. Please refrain from blaming others!
How can president ( I mean even a puppet precedent like this pabaya ) come back as a MP. It is like a bank manager coming as a cleaner in the same bank. This is the only country in the world this type of things happens.
