    Gen. Rommel Tuesday, 05 February 2019 10:14 PM

    Dr Bala,May be he did not kill enough. Had he been another DIG Udugampola, we may have not needed a battle in Nanthikadal Mullaitivu. What is wrong in killing youngsters, Tamil or anyone who are TERRORISTS? Was your darling LTTE not conscripting children to be child soldiers?

    saman Tuesday, 05 February 2019 10:59 PM

    We salute you Sir. We need brave officers like you.

    dickie bird Tuesday, 05 February 2019 11:55 PM

    Why only (01) year extention? He should be given (03) years and appointed IGP forthwith.There are no such calibre officers in the Gazetted Ranks today.

    Dee Wednesday, 06 February 2019 03:20 PM

    Agreed. I know for a fact that as IGP he will never ever salute some former Secretary.
