All the SLFP ministers who were involved in illegal activities and earned large sum of money which belongs to the poor people of this country, and all the SLFP MPS who are unlikely to get nominations from SLFP due to various reasons have participated on this rally.

It is obvious that the thieves, rogues, thugs and the looters with MR, lets see whether the Sri Lankans are still naive as they used to be.
John Fernandez Saturday, 09 May 2015 11:52 AM
More fabricated stories against Rajapakshas will come out soon. It will not do any harm to MR, instead people will gather around him thanks to liars like Mangala.

Whether it is 49 or 57 all these UPFA MPs have no future in Sri Lanka. Since they are not suitable to do any other job they will have to live the rest of their lives with the money amassed by being rogues of the previous government or they will have to stay at Walikada.
srilankan forever. Saturday, 09 May 2015 01:34 PM
these are rejects,SLFP must recruit new members,they must be the alternative for UNP,it doesnt matter if it takes 10 or 20 years...must chase away ethanol dealers,snatchers and swindlers...
