Hirunika's Twists and Turns On Facebook Over Common Candidate 

November 25, 2014

Hirunika Premachandra, following her father’s tragic demise, has gained some reputation for twists and turns where her political beliefs are concerned. And her latest political twist is on the common candidate who is a long-standing friend, not only of her father, but also of her family.

Hirunika was not reluctant to appreciate Maithripala in the public domain , dubbing him as an “unblemished politician”. Just hours after that speech, she posted some pictures of a Sri Lanka Freedom Party meeting on her Facebook profile.

In the Facebook thread she shared after opening the election office, there were more than 350 comments asking her to shift allegiance and extend her support to Maithripala Sirisena – of whom she was very appreciate just 24 hours before. The large majority of people who had commented were  those who follow her on Fecebook - her fans or perhaps starry-eyed groups. Today, she, or her web team, deleted all of those comments leaving only 13 positive comments regarding President Mahinda Rajapaksa. 

After a few people commented on this, Hirunika or her web team took measures to "un-delete" the deleted comments. It all looked fine until one found out that she had edited the video cutting off the part where she spoke about Maithri!
