    observing is good. but we don't think u can take any viable reaction against upon those observations. Up to now,as we have experienced, many actions your party made have ended up with no significant effect...

    Don't underestimate their efforts. Government with massive majority, is under heavy pressure due to strategic attack of UNP.. No other active opposition in Sri Lanka.
