Mahinda in Parliament for the first time since mob violence

Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa attended Parliament sessions today, for the first time since the mob violence last week.

His son and former Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa also attended Parliament sessions today.

Both MPs were absent when their names were called for the vote to elect the new Deputy Speaker yesterday.

Mahinda Rajapaksa and Namal Rajapaksa were believed to be in hiding together with their families, following the mob violence last week.

Both were believed to have sought refuge at a Navy camp in Trincomalee.

A mob had attacked peaceful protesters near Temple Trees and at Galle Face after attending a meeting at Temple Trees with then Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Revenge attacks later took place targeting the property of several ruling party MPs and their supporters. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. The Defense Secretary has to be thanked profusely for stating that action would be taken against responsible persons after analyzing CCTV footage and video clips and telling “point blankly” that the government and defense establishment mean business when it comes to the manner in which the protests were organized, obstruction were created to law enforcing officers to carry out their duties to safeguard the citizens, assaulting Senior Police offers, burning of government and private property and mob groups laying “SIEGE” to official government administrative buildings and official residences.
    The Secretary Defense should “NOT” forget to take a look of the Chamuditha – Lal Kantah interview released on the YouTube channel of journalist Chamuditha Samarawickrama’s “Truth With Chamuditha” on JVP’s opinions about the protests and confrontations that took place on the 9th., instant in front of Temple Trees and Gota Gama at Galle Face green.
    Lal Kantha says clearly that he phoned all his senior cadres in every important city and asked them to launch protest in their localities after the action taken by the government to clear the protesters camped outside Temple Trees.
    Were these calls asking them to launch protests in their localities end up in burning residences of the PM and SLPP Politicians?
    Have the SINHALESE PEOPLE FORGOTTEN THE DISASTER THEY CREATED TO YOUR NATION AND HOW THE TRI FORCES DEFENDED OUR “MAATHRUBOOMIYA” UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF SLFP/SLPP GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIPS. Sri Lanka was not allowed to be divided or separated into two nations during the 30 years brutal LTTE war against our “Maathruboomiya” as planned by the R2P group of Western powers and the EU in connivance of the UN, like what the Westerners and the EU/UN did to Aceh of Indonesia in 2005 just after the Tsunami. IF NOT FOR MAHINDA, GOTA, SARATH FONSEKS AND THE TRI-FORCES, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN “NO”SRILANKA” FOR ALL THESES FOOLISH INSTIGATED PROTESTERS AND JVP/DESAPREMI JANATHA VIYAPARAYA REMNANTS TO CONTINUE UNWARRANTED PROTESTS FOR NEARLY 40 DAYS.
    Why has the government/Police failed to arrest JVP former MP Lal Kantha?

  2. Did anyone welcome him and his son with garland and MAHARAJANOSE group song? This would be appropriate. So what happens to Ranil? Will he sing Bye Bye baby to his new accomplices? A sight that will never be erased from memory.

  3. Is illegal surveillance of citizens phones the cause for slow internet speeds? Can the technicians working in these companies leak any malpractice to protesters please?
