Muthuhettigama is just another thug who brought shame to Mahinda. Those guys must be chased away from politics but will not happen in Sri Lanka as long as people are narrow minded and only see faults with the other party they don’t support and do not see any faults of the party they support.
good reddens this thing should happen after all its a well know fact that all these guys are leaving to break away the SLFP to form a new party, Birds of a feather flock together isnt it so all the stoogers will get together and form a new party with dreams of ruling the country again. try it this time boys you will loose whatever you had.
Hon Sarath Muthihettigama, a Deputy Minister in the Yahapalana Government, is threatening to resign his portfolio because, the Yahapalana Government to which he belongs, has set-up an illegal institution named FCID.
Strongly advise this Deputy Minister that he should resign his portfolio promptly and get back to the grass-roots to ensure the return of the King to the throne.
when the guilty are punished there are lame excuses like political revenge, illegal institutions etc so does it mean that when whatever he did when in power during the last ten years was legal, is money laundering in the millions legal is importing drugs legal is robbing the poor man tax money legal may be legal in the banana republic where this guy his joker buddies and supporters should be sent to
