    Well, this is not good for the Government's image. Let them do their work. We should not allow public to tell that Sri Lanka Police is politicized. When a driver of a Minister kills a woman by knocking her, he is free, but when someone is pasting posters they end up in jail.

    You obviously have not seen the county in a while. There is mostly one poster multiplied by a 100 million around the country... and it is not a jvp poster!

    "JVP media Unit added that the four JVP supporters were arrested without giving any reasons".... pasting posters and ruining others' walls is now illegal. That's why.

    They were pasting posters? Oh my God! That cannot be allowed! I am sure, the posters were anti-government.
    A Detention Order should be made to detain the arrestees without any judicial order.

    It has become a habit with government officials to object and harass any and every thing the opposition does. Do they not understand that the COLOUR of power is not permanent, IT CHANGES.
