Government playing politics over present crisis – Namal
United People’s Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa accuses the present administration of playing politics over the present crisis in the country.
During an interview to an Indian television channel, MP Rajapaksa has said the public has lost confidence in the President and the government adding the present administration had failed to successfully mitigate the challenging situation after the Easter Sunday attacks.
Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa however commended the security personnel for carrying out an organised campaign to ensure the safety of all Sri Lankans.
He said, “The forces are doing their level best. If you look at last eight days, they have been very active and acting very fast on information they get.”
“And public has been very cooperative.”
“We see on television, we hear from security forces that how public shares information.”
“But as far as the government is concerned, we don’t have faith in the President and the Prime Minister.”
Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa added the opposition will work with the civil and military organisations, and also with the community to bring back normalcy in the lives of the people of Sri Lanka.

Agree with you,
Thaatha should be President, uncles be Ministesr and Speaker and the other uncle be Defenese Secretary.
No problems my dear Namal.
Sri Lanka will be a happy place where you can ride imported horses in Nuwara Eliya with girl friends and have night racing around Dalada Maligawa in powerful automobiles.
Also, you can go to Rugger matches in Air Force Helicopters.
So Namal, bring back the Rajapaksa regime so that the R Family can enjoy and become richer than the USD 18billion that htey already have.
Excellent comment by Onasmus,
The R Family should be back with Gotabaya Baapa as President and Basil Baapa as Finanace and Economics Minister.
The Country will be ultra safe with all the fun.
Namal, you can even have Parties in the bunker under Janadhipathi Mandiraya which your dad built, after Rugger matches with your team mates and gril friends.
Namal I head your Papa saying removing Hijabs can’t stop terrorism. Hope he is after Muslim votes and not playing politics with the current crisis.
The fact is since LTTE terrorists were decisively defeated in May 2019, yes, your father and uncle gave us an era of peace from horrific suicide bombings (after nearly 30 years of such horror) and any attempt by LTTE to revive was also promptly extinguished during that time. This is stark truth and there is no point in politiking with this truth as all Sri Lankans know it for what it was. Similarly when you say “the public has lost confidence in the President and the government adding the present administration had failed to successfully mitigate the challenging situation after the Easter Sunday attacks” that too is a fact as all can see, with horror, for what it is. Besides all that, it is also a fact that during your family’s reign it was not exactly a period of nobility, but far from it, with lavish corruption, intimidation of political opponents, ministers’ sons running rampage with nightclub violence, etc. etc.
All you hypocrites , It is because of ungrateful, ignorant ,bias, jealous people that Sri Lanka is in this predicament today. You all fell for Ranils plot to get the gamarala in the presidents chair hoping that the docile villager will be forever his puppet. U unfortunately Ranil’s plan backfired and they got a mad man instead. The rift between these two has cost so many lives because they were indulging in there cat fight while the Terrorists were making hay while the sun shines.
I disagree with your comment.
RW is a shrewd politician, even shrewder than his uncle JRJ.
RW and CBK brought Pallewatte Gamralage Yapa Sirisena into the scene to defeat MR as he is a cut-throat extraordinary; they wanted a blue guy to oppose MR to ensure his downfall.
RW never wants to be the President; you know why?
The moment you become President you become irrelevant in SL Politics. See past Presidents, MR and CBK; nobody respects them; MR only having the following of old ladies who frequent Buddhist Viharas, not the general population because he is a spent force. He can do nothing. His brothers are miserably corrupt.
RW will nominate a UNP Presidential Candidate (not son of RP), most likely to be Karu J who is likely to accepted by the minorities. And RW will remain powerful in the political field ensuring his capitalist economic policies and security of nation supported by US.
This will go on for 10 years and the nation will change forever.
What you say is true,
Ranil never wants to become President.
Ranil wants to be a Politician who determines who becomes the President.
He made Rajapaksa the president to whitewash the LTTE and be stung with international criticism. He got them to do the dirty job.
Then he got the stupid cut-throat Gamralage to beat the Rajapaksas showing the pouplation that they need democracy.
That is a powerful place to be in.
Ranil is clever, he is brilliant and he beats the Rajapaksa stupids by miles in the marathon.
