    Appointment of the Guy who carries Toy Pistols to control crowds, to Hambantota is not consistent with the YahaPalana principles.

    What about their appachchi?

    Nishantha Wednesday, 17 August 2016 01:44 PM

    Good move. SLFP can make a strong comeback in future elections if they re-examine the list of new appointees and see as to whether they fall into the category of cleaner characters as expected by the new generation of voters. Nishantha

    While wickets fall and runs are scored at the SSC, the in nearby Wijerama Mawatha, wickets are falling and runs are scored. Nice and we enjoy the fun.

    Appachchi is not an electoral organiser.So he cannot be removed .He is only a mp .
