    The shameless Jokers of this corrupt lawless Banana Republic will even use the image of Lord Buddha at a Election time, strike oil, increase wages, bring down the prices of essentials and make a load of promises just until the Elections are over, as they cannot survive without Power for what they have done to our Mother Lanka and when they have no where to run. Hope the majority uneducated buffalos will not swallow the sweeten pills and chase them out to save our Mother Lanka from these.......

    As a gesture of good will, His Holiness should have paid a visit to Temple of the Tooth at Kandy.
