    What a waste of public money ! What do we gain by having this May day rally ? Since independence all government 's looked after the interest of the gov.employees but not the grievances of the people in the private sector and 1.6 million workers in the middle east.Mind you a person now work in the M.E have to pay 17500/- to this government in every two years at the Airport.M.E employees doesn't have EPF or pension when they come back after the tenure.And the best part is they supposed to be No one Foriegn exchange earner to this country.

    Good if genuine but this may be overt side, covert may be the other side of the story.

    This is a trick by the Government to make the JO rally a wash out! This place is at least 20 times the size of the Kirulapone ground they had it last time. The ground would look empty!

    Why should the leaders of the "JO" get high security? They claim that the people are behind them and that they only want the best. If so, why would anyone want to harm them?

    Do not gain through dividing. Do some fruitful things to economy of the country

    I do not exactly know if this is covert or overt agenda or totally hidden but his action obviously manifests this democracy and MR must have been humbled .If he were the Prime Minister ,he would trample the opposition under his foot .

    A statement similar to double edged sword. via DM Android App

    Double Game play Saturday, 01 April 2017 01:31 PM

    Pm is very smart in playing double with MR family members. For the people one eye and for MR family one eye. But people of this country are not fool. They will show in next election result even if Sarath fonseka will be appointed presidential candidate like in the past. But in upcoming election it will be surely a worse one for UNP and MR. Because people have learnt many things from these two major leader's party
