    Sounds like they caught another "Kangetta" to hide the real culprit who entered the house to carry out a government contract by going through some documents. It is ridiculous to even suggest that the UNP should introduce "Mathata Thitha" because they never proposed it and when those who introduced it have now lost control over it by indulging in heavy booze at every turn.

    Why can't the UNP introduce Mathata Thitha in their party and show an example to MR?
