    These are the dirtiest political tactics. It is a shame on Dulles who is supposed to be a champion of democratic values to talk loud about it. Anyway people expected this type of tactics. What has Milinda, the so called 'cleanman' has got to say. If the govt. was strong they should face the elecetions without scape goats to boost their stakes.

    bad idea for their plan not good for both parties. correct erors made by both for bothparties. seem imperfect in all ways you look. what it says. can you beleive this.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 05 October 2011 05:04 PM

    These candidates are obviously put forward by the government party itself on UNP ticket so that they can make a big ha-ho and announce to the electorate these people realized the value of the UPFA and crossed over to their side all of a sudden remembering they are supposed to be "patriots" In simple words, this sort of activity is called "prostituting Democracy".

    Siripala Wednesday, 05 October 2011 05:04 PM

    This is what happens when political dreams collide with reality.

    citizen Wednesday, 05 October 2011 06:16 PM

    what is the price

    Patta Pal Thursday, 06 October 2011 11:48 AM

    Hey it is now more than 24hrs since the announcement. So I guess the government ministers have no idea of time, or how long a few hours means. Does a few mean 1000 hours.
