    bernard Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:04 PM

    Sri Lankans, forget DEMOCRACY and start getting used to living under Rajapakses rule for a very very long time whether you like it or not.

    Herath Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:20 PM

    Of course this is not a democratic country!!! what were you thinking?

    asa Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:34 AM

    Hon. IGP,
    Would you kindly explain us what is democracy ?

    M.H.Sheriff Saturday, 04 September 2010 04:20 PM

    Channa that shows how ignorant you are, There are enough Tamil speaking undergraduates with the JVp, even in colombo JVP paste tamil posters.

    Bala Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:38 AM

    Yehiya Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:39 AM

    One of the worse IGP in the history.

    pusa Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:41 AM

    Ruwan Saturday, 04 September 2010 06:48 AM

    One man democracy.

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 05 September 2010 04:32 AM

    Chum, this is Sri Lankan Democracy, The Chinthanaya version of the Right to and Freedom of Expression. Wait for more with the 18th Amendment.

    bash Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:07 AM

    JVP is a democratic party, like Pillayans's, Karuna's and very soon KP's parties

    Ruwa Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:16 AM

    These things will continue to happen until public keep silence.

    sam Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:19 AM

    Yep, They need to suffer. They have to feel sorry about their decision...

    Modawansa Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:25 AM

    This was done on the Instruction of higher ups.If IGP doesn't do it we will see a new IGP from tommorow.What a domo-crazy

    Sarath Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:30 AM

    We have IPG (Inspector of police goons) not IGP.

    Hash Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:32 AM

    Must be scared, because the public will get known the truth...

    R Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:32 AM

    Can the guys in jaffna read these posters anyway?

    Holman Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:33 AM

    Looks like now JVP is trying to create problems in the North. Insurgents are always insurgents. Be careful of these trouble makers.

    Labby Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:37 AM

    What law have they broken by sticking up those posters ?

    Nadarajah Sethurupan Saturday, 04 September 2010 07:53 AM

    who can read this in jaffna?

    Oyage sudu kella Saturday, 04 September 2010 08:24 AM

    Please please please. Catch all of them and put inside for life. They are jobless people.

    Sukumar Saturday, 04 September 2010 08:36 AM

    The Police were sleeping until the president had to instruct the IGP to remove his cut outs and the same police is active in arresting those who paste posters against the govt. Shame on u Mr IGP.

    ginger Saturday, 04 September 2010 09:16 AM

    and we still call this DEMOCRATIC socialist republic of Sri Lanka ??

    mahesh Saturday, 04 September 2010 10:06 AM

    Well, they were arrested because the posters were in sinhala and the people of Jaffna can not understand it. Am I right IGP? This is MR demoCRAZY.

    Saradial Saturday, 04 September 2010 10:23 AM

    Does only WW has freedom of expressing thoughts? (This is over to GL)

    Ibnu Batuta Saturday, 04 September 2010 10:47 AM

    DEMO CRAZY

    Anver Saturday, 04 September 2010 10:50 AM

    If a simple democratic right cannot be exercised even before the con amendments, we can just imagine how it would be after the amendment.

    shane uk Saturday, 04 September 2010 10:57 AM

    god punishing jvp for helping Mahinda in 2005.You desrve this

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 04 September 2010 11:12 AM

    If this is how they act against freedom of expession even before the new draconian amendments are passed,one can well imagine how the dictators will behave once those are passed.

    channa Saturday, 04 September 2010 01:39 PM

    Geronimo Saturday, 04 September 2010 01:45 PM
