‘ITN Attack Is Unfair, But Take It Easy’ – President Phoned Harsha

President Mahinda Rajapaksa called UNP National List Legislator Harsha De Silva today, to express his regrets for a campaign of vilification against the Opposition Member by the state owned ITN, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Mahinda Rajapaksa

ITN has recently launched a series of attacks on UNP National List MP and Kotte Organiser Dr. Harsha Silva, for resting his arm over the shoulder of a Buddhist monk during last Wednesday’s Enough is Enough protest in Colombo.

President Rajapaksa is reported to have claimed that the campaign had been unfair since the incident could have happened to anyone. He told de Silva that if necessary an explanation and apology could have been made.

De Silva thanked him for the concern and informed the President that of his own accord he had given ITN an explanation and offered an apology to any one who may have been offended.

The President was surprised that ITN had not carried it and said he will take necessary action, he laughingly told Harsha to take it easy, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Subsequently, SLBC Chairman Hudson Samarasinghe called De Silva during his morning show and said the President had called him and asked him to call the UNP MP and give him an opportunity to explain what happened.

    He should ask ITN Chairman, Hudson Samarasinghe to resign instead of apologizing to victims. Now Sri Rohana Manaranjana is acting “Baba Ukkung” part.

      There, his kind of leaders may know nothing to be exemplary.

      As many of here have read, Former German President was forced to resign for a deal that he is said to have dealt with before entering to presidency. Later it was found, it was just nothing but a private issue.
      But ours would never respect that kind of actions, nor would the president criticise similar actions. He moves wrong and how can he ask ministers to become exemplary.
      At the time, poor girl Rizana was beheaded, I thought President would ask that idiotic low minded Jehan Perera to resign, but the guy even brought silly arguments against his silly reactions on the very day the poor girl was beheaded. These have become facts to us all. So how can we expect MR asking Hudson to resign ?

      Hudson Samarasinge is the chairman of SLBC. ITN chairman is Rosmand Senarathna. But why should a chairman resign for misbehaviour
      of a bankrupt politlician?

    As a Buddhist gesture, we must give asylum to 800000 Rohingya Muslims and immediate citizenship. This will strengthen the image of Buddhism and also this will please the minorities as Sri Lanka must follow India’s policy of appeasing the minorities.

    What is offensive about throwing an arm across a monk’s shoulder? Is there anything in the Buddhist text that says monks must be venerated above other human beings? Somebody enlighten me please.

And Also how he also assaulted Gamini Wijeratne of the Bus owners association for calling a strike And the poor man had to stop it. Read all these stories in lankaenews .

    Reading between the lines, is this country run run by the Hoi Poli +++++++++++++++++++————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

    Reading between the lines, Is this country run by the Hoi Polloi as allegedly elected by the masses OR by a very strong unseen hand from outside?? Otherwise catch this bugger MR being so benevolent, without making capital of the situation?? Does this explain RW’s silence from the time the rug was pulled under his feet in 2005, although his complaint to Richard Armitage the strong man under George Bush Jnr about the UGLY AMERICAN living amongst us, fell on Deaf Ears?? Then the subsequent secret visits of Richard Armitage visiting MR, which the country came to know very much later, after his departure?

    Are we not taken for a Right ROYAL RIDE like the Staged War Drama, with the LTTE where VP was deceived and massacred along with his cadre by the same Unseen Force, just speculating they wanted the War stopped or VP saved??

    “..ITN Attack Is Unfair, But Take It Easy’ – President Phoned Harsha..”

    What perversion and bestiality is this? This criminal MARA destroyed the very village where the Tusker carrying the Sacred Tooth Relics lives by poisoning the water through effluent discharges of the factory operated by his crony and shares held by them too. The Tusker sensed the poison in the water and refused to drink or bathe in the polluted water! The owner indigenous physician of the Tusker, if he is a principled and upright man, should have refused to send the Tusker to this perahara in protest of the Rajapakshas’ irreparable damage to the precious water and soil. But they all stooped. The MARAs operate a criminal gang of monks who are doing everything criminal and sacrilegious except following Buddhist ideals. One of the stooges of MARA squeezed the testicles of a monk within the parliament but not a whimper was heard from the ultimate protectors of Buddhism, the Rajapakshas! School children who were waiting in the bus stand were shot dead at point blank when people were agitating for water! For Rajapakshas none of these are problems for them but the one second frame of a video where the hand of Harsha passes over the shoulder of a monk while he was in the process of picking the microphone that was in front of the monk made headlines in Rajapaksha bastard media whores! Sri Lanka has gone down to the bottom of deception, corruption, criminality, and bestiality under Rajapakshas! Rajapakshas and majority of people who follow them are animals who are a disgrace to humanity.

      This is the same Rascle who first told ITN to publish this, now playing his known Hambanthota comedy tricks.

      The cunning fox think he is the Smartest in the world, when even Mot….r fu….er bast…d, son of a who…e cannot even go to another country whithout getting a rotten tomato treat.

      Keep playing the known one man show band until the day will come to hide in Hambanthota salt lagoon.

    This is an eye opener to UNP to see how Rajapakse “Uguduwa” Baffoon keep his eye behind everything what UNP does 24 hours per day.

    The Uguduwa was smart enough to publish this minor incident in ITN when no other UNP meetings or events are shown or telecasted in their Family owned TV.

    UNP and all other opposition parties have to take extra precautions from this Hambanthota Ke.ri Bal..a “Gan Kabaraya Uguduwa” who always keep an eye on what’s going inside other parties. None of the other UNP events were shown in ITN.

    It is high time to go under the Bedroom of Gan Kabaraya to see what the [Edited out] doing inside the Araliya Gaha in the evenings.

      Rumour has it that he gets the best pickings brought to him and his son too! Ever wonder why the Lansas of Negombo are so dear to his heart. What are the Lansas going back a generation known for engaging in?
