The most talked about news on Sri Lanka

SL`s lost glory to be retrieved! -UNP, SLFP (M) vow

Leader of the Jathika Sabha and Opposition Ranil Wickremesinghe addressing the opening session of the National consultation for policy development at New Town Hall said politicians in the past irrespective of their Party colours commanded respect and showed great concern to maintain their reputation. Now, even when they forcibly demand respect they can’t get it due to their corrupt and criminal activities.


Now, power and money only determine right and wrong. It is a degenerative society created by political expediency and opportunism.

After sixty years of independence, where are we heading? He asked. Was independence sought for this country to plunge it into this predicament?

The Govt. after resorting to the worst repression and suppression of the Media dictating to them what should be written, published and broadcast, tells the World that there is no censorship of News. Sri Lanka has now been branded as the most dangerous place for journalists with a human rights record violation record that is staggering by any standard.


The need of the moment is a National consensus for policy development without allowing politicians to formulate policies according to their whims and fancies. This is precisely the aims and objectives of this program, and thereby restore the country to its past glory, Ranil emphasized.


Jathika Sabha Deputy Leader and SLFP (M) Mangala Samaraweera said this present administration has only accelerated the country’s abysmal downfall. The educated and knowledgeable who kept silent and idly watched this decline are also responsible, he added.

He called upon all to play a role in this National policy formulation to turn the dream of connecting the North and South into a reality.
