    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 06 February 2015 09:48 AM

    Back to square one? Hopefully no. Current Tamil Political powers have lot to do to dispel this notion.

    Stop complaining. This is yahapalanaya

    Now the govt is going to make Temple trees and Presidents house open to public. A future president therefore cannot live there as all security matters will be exposed. How stupid are they. For mere political advantage the govt is creating a massive security risk

    What about sabotage by somebody?

    patriot Thursday, 05 February 2015 06:03 PM

    Police and land power, need to rethink.

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 09:59 AM

    Do not think of Police and Land powers until there is absolute peace for five years. And also resettlement of Sinhalese families in North and east are completed.

    Here comes the rain again! Ranil and Mangala petting tigers! Back in the past in the name of peace pact he let Tigers come to capital and organized again and Chandrika had to use special powers to take defence ministry under her after listening to Karannagoda as the Commander of the East.Now who will save SL?

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 10:04 AM

    I feel that the Government is always giving in little by little and have no plans to counteract Eelam or Terrasrism.

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 10:10 AM

    Mr.President, another alternative is to promote General Sarath Fonseka to the rank of " Field Marshall " and mobilise him for active military service as the Three Forces Commander.

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 10:14 AM

    Mr.President, things may escalate much faster than we think. Therefore please be prepared to face any situation. See that they do not take us by surprise.

    Sobitha Thursday, 05 February 2015 11:49 PM

    Here we go, newly found freedom. Some anti govt. Policeman has done this!

    Exactly the change is coming soon.Three cheers

    What has police and land power got to do with this? Stupid people like you will never bring peace to Sri Lanka

    Joker Thursday, 05 February 2015 06:25 PM

    Things are going to be worse after 13 Amendement. is activated fully.Ms Biswal wants us to get back to hell.food for thought

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 10:21 AM

    Police must continue day nd night patrolling. Daytime 6 armed cops with a Radio Set. Night 10 armed cops with a Radio Set. With the Radio Set they report to the control room every 30 minutes.

    Kamaini Friday, 06 February 2015 01:28 AM

    To live in a country why need Land power and Police power in the same way? Stupids are the people like you who think like that.

    Senator Thursday, 05 February 2015 06:49 PM

    Before the election,it would have been a different scene in Sri Lanka today.

    Waco Friday, 06 February 2015 02:20 AM

    Mr.President, appoint Genaral Sarath Fonseka from the National List as the deputy minister incharge of the Army, Navy,and the Airforce and also as the minister incharge of the department of police .

    Dutchy Thursday, 05 February 2015 07:06 PM

    We can not go back to the dark era. Army and Police together should take serious note of this incident

    brainmaster Thursday, 05 February 2015 07:33 PM

    They have to find out who was shooting, then only we should judge.

    Stop making assumptions! Through investigation needed to see any bad elements ulterior motive to cause trouble.

    chandra Jayawardeba Friday, 06 February 2015 07:50 AM

    This is natural. Police John has now taken over over Police. He killed 49 iintelligence officers with the help of Prabhakaran last time when he was Police Minister. Now he has started the game again. God bless our Forces once gain.

    who benefits most from this type of action think about it bfore jumping into blaming yahapalanaya via DM Android App

    Senator Friday, 06 February 2015 12:21 PM

    And the Tamils want the military taken away from the North.

    G.M.Jayawardena Thursday, 05 February 2015 04:56 PM

    The most of the news media seems staying away from reporting this incident. This is not a good sign shooting security personnels and hope the police would be able to bring the culprits to justice.

    aja Thursday, 05 February 2015 05:16 PM

    Here we go ???Foreign Minister can take all reasponcibilty

    Ryan Thursday, 05 February 2015 09:29 PM

    this may not be the last, but bring culprits to justice

    Waco Thursday, 05 February 2015 09:41 PM

    Mr.President get Genaral Sarath Fonseka into action before it is too late.

    Waco Thursday, 05 February 2015 09:43 PM

    Were those policemen unarmed ? If do sack the OIC.

    Waco Thursday, 05 February 2015 09:48 PM

    Mangala please do not get India involved for any reason.

    Waco Thursday, 05 February 2015 10:03 PM

    Can the Defence Secretary go and advise the security personals?

    Rohan Thursday, 05 February 2015 05:26 PM

    Government reduced security in North and disabled army intelligence on TNAs demands saying now war is over and country in in peace. We will see more in time. via DM Android App

    Waco Thursday, 05 February 2015 10:05 PM

    Has Mangala already gone there?

    smith henry Thursday, 05 February 2015 05:38 PM

    Before the elections the promise was that law and order would prevail immediately after the change of government. Hope they realise that it is easier said than done.
