    There are few people like this and present government must get rid of all of them. It is a wastage of public / tax payers money.

    Once the Parlimentry system in introduced, do away with the provincials and get rid of the Thugs. Sri Lanka is too small to have the Provincil council system.

    Neither SLFP nor UNP should entertain this kind of cheap politicians?
