‘SF Apologized To Prez’ Says Rajitha, ‘I Did Not’ Insists SF

The controversial statements that Minister Sarath Fonseka is reported to have made regarding the decision to support Maithripala Sirisena’s presidential campaign has now spawned a new controversy with Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Rajitha Senaratne saying the Fonseka had apologized to the President while Fonseka insists he did nothing of the sort.

Fonseka

Senaratne briefing the media on cabinet decisions stated that Minister Fonseka had expressed his regrets over the statement he made saying that the decision taken to make Maithripala Sirisena the presidential candidate was a mistake

However, a missive from Fonseka’s ministry countered this claim, maintaining that Fonseka had only met the President and the Prime Minister to discuss about the recent political issues based on a proposal made by the Premier.

“At the meeting, the President has said the prevailing issues could be discussed between him and the Minister in order to arrive at solutions instead of making statements about such issues to the media or at public meetings. Apart from this, no discussion was made with regard to any apology,” the statement said.

    “Minister Fonseka had expressed his regrets over the statement he made saying that the decision taken to make Maithripala Sirisena the presidential candidate was a mistake”

    Not just SF but the majority of the country regrets the decision of making Sillysena the common candidate. If Sobathia Thera was around he too would have lived with regret.

    The is no reason for SF to apologize for stating a fact.

      If it is the truth that President himself makes every efforts to protect former goons,

      people should come to street and go on day long protests… since we appointed him to punish former balligeputhas who looted the hugs sums of tax payers funds.

        Sarath Fonseka is an honest person.

        HE WOULD NOT CHANGE HIS NATURE EVEN IF HE HAD BEEN KEPT IN A CAGE by Rajapakshe.

        I believe he will set records making tangible changes towards the upliftment of the people inthat areas.

        If as he reveals, president himself block it not making him minister for law and order… WE NEED TO HEAR IT DIRECTLY FROM PRESIDENT.
        And the name of SF should be made clean whether he was the hand to have killed Lasantha or not. We must not wrong thoughts to be established in the society, leaving Gotabaya to stay scot free further. Not just killing of Lasantha there are lot more other killings Gota and the rajapakshe are reported to be alleged.

      ” If Sobathia Thera was around “

      that is why he is not around and conveniently bumped off 6 months into the presidency.He would have been a pain in the ass,he being the yahapalanaya architect.

    SF merely kissed his arse.He is truthful.Kissing arse is not an apology.SF is slowly but surely maturing from army officer to politician after his devastating defeats at the election battlefield.

      SF is a very strong straight man and he does not believe in pussy footing like the rest of the useless ministers. As for Rajitha every ones knows his brain and mouth works independently and no one takes him seriously . He is nothing but a joke

        This is wrong. But Rajitha Health ministry did lot more than the previous ministry that was controlled by Ballige putha Rajapakshes.

        Alone the prices of medical drugs inclu. stents to descrease is a great work. You Rupawathi, you may have some other thoughts, but we should be honest to respect if anyone did a good work.
        Rajaakshes looted it to the core, but the current duo for some reasons keep away from not revealing the truths.

    I think politicians like Rajitha are sinile and irrelevant in today’s world and to the emerging young generation. Many in parliament should be dismantled from the system and the people should be brave to usher in a new political order.

    what i am saying is SF has realised initially at least he has to kiss arse of the bigwig politicos such as ranil first and sira second so that one day he can kick arse.In politics you have to kiss arse so that you can be conferred the power to kick arse one day.initially it is a case of lick,lick and more licks.

    Rajitha – ever since you became a so called co spokesperson of the cabinet – none of your utterances had held water. To say the least you’ve been a pathological liar. No way SF would have said sorry to a whimp ponayah like MS

    Rajitha Senaratna is a loser par excellence, he is a unique being apparently in possession of a few tongues not akin to being human, for, he aptly twists his version of any story the way he desires even if the whole world knows he is fake. Serves right for everyone who enlist such losers to carry out responsible tasks in any government. Time to kick this loser out of SL politics lock stock and barrel.

      I do not blame him if he did quit. It is wise to be with a wise enemy than a foolish, ignorant friend. Rajitha sees SF as a threat for his ambitions of becoming a future Prez/PM or is spying for the JO & Mara/Gotha.

    We have to accept the SF version. Probably Rajitha was a bit careless here.

      Dear Fathima,
      .
      You talk sense. You once found fault with me, but then were nice enough to get back to me with a decent comment that didn’t have to amount to an apology. You agreed with me.
      .
      So, you’ll probably be relieved to hear that I’ve understood what you’ve said above; there’s no need to unscramble the grammar of the hurried comment you put on.
      .
      I more than agree with K. Pillai. See the very first comment by Burt.
      .
      We don’t have to say that My3 is a worse scoundrel than MaRa, but we’ve got to tell him clearly that we are disappointed, and now there are some question marks about the honesty of his immediate family. I had thought that his son was merely mad; now I see that he’s also bad.
      .
      Chathurika still is pretty, and more acceptable, but seems to lack judgement. Let’s hope that she doesn’t get jolted too much when she lands on terra firma in 2020. Jayanthi alone, like J.R.’s wife, is not culpable. A strange comparison? Well, neither tried to over-reach.
      .
      But not my conception of a woman’s role. Women have to be accorded equal say, but for that they must come in independent of their families.
      .
      Sarath Fonseka now stands as a beacon of hope – and he’s been tested in ways that My3 had never been. Others whom we should think of include Nagananda Kodituwakku; Ben Hurling has suggested this guy:

    SF – you should stop wasting time playing `silly buggers’ with the President and Rajitha, and get down to work immediately – namely resolving the mounting problems affecting the wildlife sector. You are the last hope of the Conservation minded public at large. ( President should also have given Environment too to SF instead of hogging it for himself for unknown reasons.)
    You should persuade Dr Pilapitiya back as the Wildlife Chief to work out a National plan for Wildlife Conservation and immediately get back Warden Ratnayaka back to Yala. I hope you will be able to stand up to miserable Sajith and be merciless to the Elephant Poachers and also bring the Rajapaksa backed Jeep Mafia under control. Also stop the illegal encroachments of Wilpattu by corrupt politicians like Bathiudeen and certain church elements as well .
    The Public, especially the younger generation, are sick and tired of the nonstop stupidity being exhibited in every field by the ruling clowns. They will be watching your performance since sustainable Wildlife conservation is of the greatest concern for our country. Having helplessly watched the pathetic inefficiency of the previous ministers and the spineless leadership giving into corrupt political pressures at the expense of long term national benefits in this sector, the Public have reason to hope that the war winning General will be able to deliver the much needed positive changes. In the future interest of Sri Lanka, the Wildlife sector needs you more than the Law and Order sector at present.

    SF is behaving like an wounded animal……….. having entered gutter politics due to his election debacle
    trying hard to impress upon masses to no avail.\
    he has become a nicompoop.

    Diluted the status of the Field marshall rank as well.
