    Another positive result due to Yahapalanaya. Wish that the new IGP will be able to restore the honour of the Police Service/Uniform, where educated youth, both male and female will yearn to join the Police Force as a preferred vocation in the near future. Ranjith

    He should be allowed to do the job devoid of political pressure. Firstly, let him clear the police service of corrupted and inefficient staff.
