MR’s life in danger – Welivita
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has curtailed participating at functions and meetings as his life is in danger due to lack of security, his spokesman Rohan Welivita said.
Welivita while denying the reports that 500 military personnel have been deployed
for the protection of the former President, yesterday added that the former President’s security has been reduced to 102 personnel. He said that 22 of them are handling administrative functions.
“His life is in danger as the government has started releasing hardcore terrorists who were held under Prevention of Terrorism Act without rehabilitation,” Welivita said.
The former President’s media spokesman added that the LTTE suspects are still in a war mentality and releasing such suspects without proper rehabilitation poses a threat to the life of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

This is statesment of Weliwita…make no sence….the only reason Rajapaksha curtailing his daily Temple propaganda strategy is due to his dealings with Ranil…..to protect his family from various charges,he compelled to mchange his attitude politically…..People of this country knows Mahinada and as well as Ranil…
yes you are rite Mr.Siri Elapatha
In whole Asia most spelled name is Mahinda.
In Sri Lanka, mostly used to talk about is Mahinda and another name is Rajapakse.
If we asked from anyone, who is the most known presidents in the country will be Mahinda.
Those are the true facts!
No one can’t say it’s false.
Till another 10 years, this fact will never be change.
Ranil is aware about this and so does his clans.
So to carnage his image they will do everything within short span of a time.
The talks, discussions and other bullshits are just imaginations, Ranil will not take any chances.
People are still taking a ride. When they stop riding with them this government will collapse within very short period.
yes Mr. Niyamasinhalay you rite
he will be popular and not forgotten for generations for what he did to the masses not only he the entire generation of his family is always remembered and will be remembered when people really realize the harm that was done to them. yes the most popular president so popular that he lost the elections and will soon loos everything he had
I am rather disgusted to note the towering golden, stone studded rings on this person’s fingers.
Well, that’s what he stood for, nothing but personal wealth.
The war was a means of achieving that wealth and they, the Rajapaksas, did achieve mountainous wealth.
They sacrificed a million lives of Sinhala Buddhist lives to achieve that wealth.
The 40,000 tamils lost in the war is peanuts.
Where did the palaces belonging to the Rajapaksas come from? Where did the mansions in California belonging to the Rajapaksa’s come from? Where did the Lamborghini’s driven by the Rajapaksa progeny come from? How did the Carlton Sports Network grow from zero to multi-billion in 4 years?
Once there was a President by the name of RP who was popular amongst the masses because of his housing programs. Where is he today? Only a crow shit laden statue adorns the streets of Colombo.
Likewise, when the truth emerges, the Rajapaksas and their ill obtained wealth at the cost of a million Sinhala Buddhist young lives will be confined to rubbish bins of history.
A perfect analysis of the former strongman and his gang of thieves. Unbelievably he still has many supporters, mainly the illiterate rural folk. The man took the whole country for a ride for a decade hanging on to the already dead tiger’s tail. Gota is still trying the trick to see if it works! Apparently the former strong man did not realise that one of the diamond studded rings had come off and lying on the floor at Cinamon Grand while attending a function there. A waiter who found it handed it back to the rightful owner having no doubt of the owner of such an expensive ring. Or was he scared of the white van if he had kept it to himself?
Well Nico u r 1000% right.well said. I Greer with you.
While some aspects of democratic rule (such as independent commissions) have been re-established post the 8th Jan elections and the massive fleecing of public funds by a nepotistic cabal have been stalled, many of the ugly individuals who ravaged the country are still in parliament.
If “good governance” is to succeed, people must see a clean parliament and a small cabinet of ministers consistent with the size of the population and good public and social indicators like nutrition, health services and school facilities at a national level.
