No one in government listens to me: President
There is no one in this government who accepts what I say, President Maithripala Sirisena said.
Speaking at the launch of the Sinhala translation of “The Viceroy Special” authored by Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando, President Sirisena said that he told those responsible for the construction of the Colombo-Kandy Expressway to continue with their work without flattening mountains and ruining the environment, but they continue building this road ignoring my instructions and it is clear that there is no one in this government who accepts what he says.
The President said, “Everybody knows that I am the minister in charge of the subject of environment and before the construction of the Colombo-Kandy Expressway began I told the Big Man in Colombo and the Big Man in Kandy not to level the mountains. I am not an engineer but as a person who loves the environment, I explained the way this expressway should be built.
Three years ago I explained to them that the expressway should be built from Ambepussa to Kurunegala avoiding any harm to the mountains. Even today the time spent to travel from Kurunegala to Kandy is only 35 minutes. Therefore I requested them to widen the road from Kurunegala to Kandy but to avoid levelling any mountains along the way, but it seems that they are not listening to me,” he charged.

I wander why?
This first citizen, wearing a 100% Gold spectacle frame and stone-studded rings on his fingers, looks a miserable person.
Sir, as you say, your own Government fails to listen to your so-called wisdom because you are actively undermining them hoping to win electoral sympathy so that you could retain the King’s chair for a further years to enjoy its comforts and perhaps rise to No 1 in the Forbes list of rich SL politicians from the current position as No. 3.
Sir, please note, it is not only your own Government that is not listening to you but the entire country does the same. Once a cut-throat, Sir, always a cut-throat.
What you do Sir, is to depart right now and leave us in peace.
Go Sir, go, you are already in the rubbish heap of history.
Of course Dear Sir,
Thank heavens you have adequate intellect to realise that!
Isn’t it time to call it quits, Dear Sir?
Answering your quetion,
1. becuse he is low intelligence
2. because he is a confirmed cut-throat
3. because his mental fitness is doubtful
You are a lost, beaten, broken man. Go man Go for shake of this poor wounded country. Hope for your own shake people of Sri Lanka will forgive you. The reason no body listen to you is you are a brainless gamarala.
By continuing to sit in the King’s chair, you are ruining our nation, day by day.
After election in 2015, MR handed over the SLFP chair to you, magnanimously.
As SLFP chair, you have wrecked the Party.
As Ranjith says, Go Man Go.
You will never be forgiven as you are an extraordinary cut throat.
why should they listen to you for you are a hypocrite
I am not surprised no one listens to you, specially when you look at the facts.
Kurunegala to Kandy is 45.4KM when you travel via A10. How the hell you do tht in 35 minutes, if this is the case why we need highways.
