Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s house set on fire by protestors
Posted in Local News
Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s private residence on 5th Lane in Colombo has been set on fire by the protestors.
A group of protestors entered his house a short while ago and set the place on fire after a tense situation erupted between the protestors and security forces on the ground.
Several journalists were also attacked by the security forces after which more protestors gathered in the area.
Despite tear gas being fired on the protestors to disperse, they entered his house and set the house on fire.
OMG! This is serious. Burning, Looting, destruction started again. Who is in charge? Is this the change we asked? All these things will end up when Foreign Boots appear on SL soil.
Aragale is in charge!! In charge of the next government as well!!! Quite obvious by looking at the 2500 years of proud history what the proverb “Inguru deela miris gatta wage” came into being. I think we should update it in about year’s time to ‘nai miris’.
Well done protestors.. You should have done with him inside the house.
If the Political Leadership in Parliament is mature and sincere in building the Nation from this point onward, they should unanimously elect Ranil Wickremasinghe as the next President.
I do not understand the logic of the comments of Ranjith and Roxie. The biggest mistake of President GR was to appoint RW as the PM – a failed politician, who was not even elected by the people. BUT, I DO NOT CONDONE THE BURNING OF HIS HOUSE – this is downright thuggery and lawlessness, which should have been prevented by the Police and Military. The protest by the people is anything but peaceful ! – they have been provoked into action by the JVP. I was utterly dumfounded by the American Ambassador (AA) in SL lending support to the JVP, speaking glowingly of the JVP, meeting with the JVP leadership and saying “I thought it is my duty to really connect with the JVP leadership as person to person” – this is BLATANT POLITICAL INTERFERENCE by the AA – not a big surprise of American foreign policy ! but should not the AA be declared a “PERSONA NON GRATA” !!! Dear citizens of SL, do not allow the JVP to mislead you, the JVP which killed thousands of Sinhala youth – NEVER EVER FORGET THE PAST ATROCIOUS HISTORY OF THE JVP. Protest, certainly if you must, but peacefully without resorting to violence and destroying property both public and private.
