    The list clearly shows how bankrupt the UPFA is.

    The SLFP has only ONE trueblue Susil in the lot - others crossovers and hangers on. SLFP has sold its soul.

    We should immediately cancel the preferential or manape system. One medical Dr. in UNP spent heavily on manape. She gave two bottles of distilled water and 1000 smackers each for a group of 3 who pledged the vote to her. No 2 on the list gave Rs. 500 each in small envelopes and Rs. 10,000 each for each estate Kankani who directed them.
