Gamini Lokuge’s slip of tongue goes viral

gaminiUnited People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) member Gamini Lokuge, speaking at an election rally, has mistakenly said that the people are behind Ranil Wickremesinghe at the August 17 Parliamentary election.

His slip of tongue has gone viral on social media and Uva Province Chief Minister Harin Fernando said that the slip of tongue showed who the real winner will be.

Fernando says Lokuge has clearly confirmed that UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe will be the next Prime Minister.


“Lokuge has said that his former leader, the leader who made him was going to win the election,” Fernando said.

The UNP member said that even if someone attempts to tell a lie using his mouth, the tongue will never lie. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. A UNP thug who made his money during his tenure in office and hardly towards the benefit of society nor the progress of the institution or ministry he was appointed to. Never an affable or capable statesman.

  2. It’s not what he said, just see how these cheap politicians calling for a press conference and trying to Capitalize on some one’s mistake. This is our typical today’s politicians. This Lokuge guy must have gone to many other rally’s this day and around 9.45pm after few glasses of Dankotuwa special, he is talking crap. But the best is how take their time to call for a press conference on some one’s genuine mistake…

  3. Lokuge enjoyed a high position as from 1971 when he was made Working Director of the Petroleum Corporation by the late Cyril Mathew under the JRJ administration. And with every changing administration, he became a Minister. So from 1971 todate, he is OK. It does not matter this slip of the tongue! He may get a place in the sun to his dying day !!
