    Underworld gangsters should be behind this incident, wiping out underworld gangs from this country is very difficult because some politicians are behind them.

    Is this cartoon to illustrate about the short comings of Colombo city? Was this a dead city before? According to my knowledge, Hon. President's official residence is situated within the jurisdiction of this city. Until now no body realizes it's internal corruption. everybody must be sleeping. Any way this whole drama is a real joke.this must be the main reason for the grenade explosion. I have a question. How did Sri Lankan army defeat the terrorist?

    Not surprising...with all the underworld thugs having protection from the high and mighty of the land...they called Sri Lanka..small of smiles..and what not..all the nice words..perhaps time to name it ..the land of thugs..,,gangs and underworld...a land like no other....

    The underworld leader who collected dirty money is the culprit.
    He is not getting his share as the hawkers have been given shelter by the government.

    Its Mahinda and his boyz who did this. Its after UN called for a war crime, its an obvious that it was SL government`s idea to create such a dumb idea, usually LTTE attacks are BIG this is some gay idea.

    All the billions spent on IIFA will be vapourised by this blast and its media coverage worldwide. Colombo exploding again will be the impression created.

    Why not remove these stalls and clear the road.
