    Feel sorry for these guys. Trying to come up, but never climb even one step by the ladder of politics.

    Decipline, Puntuality and some good qulity the JVP has, but there are more bad qualities among you. Howver, well begun is half done, go ahead boys with confidence.

    Most of Sri Lanka needs to wake up from its deep trance. Only then will there be hope.

    YOUR PARTY IS COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR NON IMPLEMENTING OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL COUNCIL UNDER 17TH AMENDMENT. NOW, THIS ELECTION IS HELD UNDER 18TH AMENDMENT. DON'T WAST YOUR TIME.

    JVP when was a coalition of government strongly supported and approved undemocratic, unjust, uncivilized, ..., actions of the then governing party. Now, they and the public are suffering from what they did then. Therefore, whether you are in the government or opposition, what is wrong is wrong, what is just is just, what is democratic is democratic, ..... . Always try to act accordingly!

    That is what has happened to almost all the political parties in Sri Lanka. They have no clear cut principles on any issues and change according to circumstances. That culture should change so that these parties could give clear opinions to the people on issues affecting them so that they too could take clear decisions.
