"These people arrived in Sri Lanka nine years ago and still keep renewing their American visas. That is because they are not here for good and as such they still own properties in America while they undertaking a contract given to them by the President to help him win the election," he told a news conference today.

    Then how about your former comrade Somawansa has dual citizenship and talking about unitary nature!

    Kasthuri Monday, 05 January 2015 08:55 AM

    JVP former leader comrade still has UK dual citizenship !. But representing unitary nature ! what a joke.

    Kasyapa Monday, 05 January 2015 08:58 AM

    Sir, regardless of what others do or stay, please forward prompt proposal / plan as to how Modi Suit government execute its election promises. Blaming, slinging mud would not be enough to catch votes of common people. NB: No matter what citizens they are, the service done hitherto is immense.

    Kasthuri Monday, 05 January 2015 09:30 AM

    its shame that his former leader comrade also has dual citizenship (UK) and talking about unitary nature.

    Confused Monday, 05 January 2015 09:33 AM

    If the people named are U.S. citizens, holding American passports, they do not need visas.
