    Mr. President, this was the Right move. Clean up some of the Mahinda Rajapaksa Garbage. Let them fish in the vast Indian Ocean, and export the Fish to the EU, now that the Fish Ban is lifted.

      This woman deserves a place in [Edited out]l BUT no means in lanken politics. [edited out]All these women to join politics were done by Buruwa Rajaakshe, they have not the least education but only the popularity.. As a carpentor skilled worker wihtout medical education cant behave like a medical docotr, actors cant always work as politicians. Latter was proven by Geetha and Malini.:Both coudl eat tones of punnaku nothing else. They did nothing but sat in parliament and abused the funds. So long waged the tails to Maharaja, he became intoxicated by Power.

        These former Actresses could live their lives with respect and dignity, if they had not been joined to lanken politics. They should put the blame on the MARA to have been put in this situation.

        In my younger days, these were the beautiful actressess in black and white movies. Those were the their high days. Almost everyone loved Malini s voice and Wijayas acting… that were in 70ties.
        But paving them the way allowing them to do lanken politics, made them disgusting as of now.

        I have no doubt Geetha would even fall to unexepcted levels in the next days, not knwoing how to get on with lanken people.
        Even a stray cow would behave well, in the discussion forum, her exchanges were like ” koheda yanne malle polle”. Even ten year old would have done them better.
        All because of her money…. thought the power would remain – but as their god father was fooled, these women too were fooled by not knowing the real pulses of the people.

        Looks like Yahapalanaya has grabbed the former Baggage Boy from his balls.

        He is being used to corner defeated “King’s” clan and their terrible misdeeds. Hopefully.

        After we have properly used him, we must not forget throw the guy into Welikada Prison. Along with his former handlers.

        Cheers!

        Sajin has been appointed to collect money for the May day bash! according to him by HE. Even if this fellow is a SLFP member how can anyone in the party appoint a out and out crook to collect money. Shows how intelligent SLFP higher officials are.Those who did not oblige him have been told that he will inform HE of those who refused.

      I hope the current rulers would not shy anymore to unmask Rajakaashe clan.

      They earlier thought giving them a chance woudl save the party. But now knowing the realities, the way Rajaakshe has made it – President has no more respect to MR et al. MR is a born a rascal though grew up becoming the president. His track records are not yet burnt… Beliatta people called him then ” Rasthiyadu karayo”. The could kill anyone and everyone if wanting to do their job. That he proved recently during his last term along. No remorses at all… best would be him to go and seek exile.. so that we the nation can finally save the funds – as read latley

      (Rajaakhse Security costs a state nearly 12millions): kNOWING ground realities of the economy – we the nation could use these funds for paying off the debts left by Srilanken or other instuttions.

    President Maithripala Sirsena

    Let’s See who MPs Geetha Kumarasinghe is. A cronie of MaRa MaRa ChaTu MaRa Amaa MaRa? It is very good. You certainly do not need them.

    Political career

    Geetha was a ardent supporter of Mahinda Rajapakse at 2010 presidential elections and was appointed as the chief organizer to Elpitiya electroate. She unsuccessfully contested at the 2010 general elections and blamed election irregularities for her defeat.

    She contested the provincial council elections in 2014 and took oath as a counciller at the Southern Provincial Council.
    Geetha contested for the 2015 Parliamentary Election from Galle District. She was selected to the 15th Sri Lankan Parliament as a Honourable Member of the Parliament by taking 63,955 preferential votes.

    Controversy

    In a parliament session in 2015 November Geetha Kumarasinghe complained the lack of time given to her and made a communal statement claiming that ethnic minority Tamil members from the north received more time than her unaware that the time allocated for her was decided by her own party. She also crticized the lifting of highly discriminatory taxes on imported English and Tamil dramas .Kumarasinghe’s parliamentary seat could be taken away as a result of the on-going court case challenging her becoming a lawmaker while holding Swiss nationality and is having her own court battle after being accused of ignorance of the constitution.[7]

    This woman should have been kicked out long ago. Shameless stupid and haughty women of this kind should not be allowed to defile the dignity of a place like the Parliament.Mahinda may be having a fancy for his favourite “padangu” film actresses.If he wants to enjoy their services any further let him go ahead at his own cost. We are not ready to maintainn them for him!

      Her mouth piece is trained for something else not to talk on political stages. How can she even add few remarks on a single tiny issue being unable to concentrate herself on the items properly. Even tea pplucking uneducated women would have done the job properly if I may say so not disgracing them.
      Pawithra Wanniarachchi I thought is the worst and bed pan styled mouth piece of MR clan – now I see there are few others even worst to the women.

      Anyway, can anybody tell me please that Pwaithra most disgusting women once joined TV debate and challenged her house woudl have been given if MR woudl be defeated, But she did not comment on this after MR was goo defeated twice and more.

        You may be right, Geetha eats kgs of make up rather than apply them to cover her face. These women as some other commentators did, could save their image well, had not they been seen in lanken politics run by Rajaakshe. TOday, the women have no respect at all… even stray cows would have been respected more by the folks.

        Her natural beauty was changed since she is in lanken politics.

        I have seen her in few discussions on the TV, most of them ended up the woman was ridiculed by the listerners and journalists raised her the questions.

    MS seems to be deliberate in his actions but he should be a bit more faster in acting.

    Bodhi Sira has lost it. He won on UNP, TNA and SLMC votes period. Trying to force his way into SLFP has back fired. The booing his cheer boys get is testamant to his popularity in SLFP. He is like a crab in hot water. When the next election comes both UNP and SLFP will drop him like a piece of hot brick. Apperantly he is the most hated head of state of Sri Lanka in its recent history.

      President Sirisena would never lose.
      Loser of all means Jarapakshe.
      He will be history in couple of months now.
      If the buggerhad a brain the size of a needle head, woud not have attacked the current politics, but being unable to digest his defeat yet, on his devious misson on and on.
      Bugger would have to be convicted even if you goo eating pigs would disagree. Believe or not sooner or later, he will have to be convicted for all the crimes deliberately done alone during the post war sessons:
      Money laundering is above all levels. Goo eating pigs will learn it sooner than later.

    The frog looking Sajin Vass Gonaawardena making an appearance is dangerous to Yahapalanaya.Such a crook and thug has the ability to go through not just one but a hundred ears.His doings have been well documented on CT.

    A belated piece of hogwash.

    Unelected worse criminals of the MR regime are a dime a dozen Ministers and Deputy Ministers in the Yahapalanaya government still hoodwinking the people.
