    This is not his vehicle because Jvp use Maruthi as they promised in election campaign.

    How many ministers were remanded in the past in such incidents? What a joke?

    INCREASING VEHICLE PRICES WILL NOT REDUCE ROAD ACCIDENTS.

    DULEEP Tuesday, 31 May 2016 01:17 PM

    IS HE DRUNKEN ?

    Oh...no issues, he will be bringing down a brand new tax free luxury car.

    Reducing vehicle imports can hopefully reduce road accidents. Vehicle population in Srti Lanka is just under 29% of the human population and mostly concentrated in urban areas causing havoc to the lives of people. This is mind-boggling and it is not a way to improve our transport system. Our political culture of pleasing and rewarding their catchers with vehicles is a significant contribution to this growing menace. As long as someone can make money, everything goes - let the country go to the dogs - that is our proud heritage.

    In an accident damaging a telephone post is covered in insurance.Police need not file a case against him. Let insurance agent handle with SLT.

    I think he just landed himself on uncle John's unwanted buyers list!!

    Fortunately he is not from JO...

    We Sri Lankans are a funny lot. Not one person expressed satisfaction that Vijiyha Herath is un harmed and safe. Who gets arrested hitting a lamp post?

    They will go thru all legal process, pay damages, set examples and talk about it for decades in TV shows, its a good marketing tool for JVP.

    This could happen to anybody. Let the Police investigate the incident and take appropriate action. Not fair to sling mud at people (even he is a politician) without knowing what had happened.

    Rhonda Taylor Wednesday, 01 June 2016 12:36 PM

    Get him to pay for the vehicle repairs. He is responsible for drunk driving, not the public. They love to preach, but when it comes to practicing, works in the opposite direction.
