    Madam Pillay saw this all in a week. For the "so called patriots" an election was needed.

    karu Sunday, 22 September 2013 06:42 PM

    thanks for govt or UN and western power ?

    Jena Sunday, 22 September 2013 02:30 PM

    being a Srilankan Tamil and an extremist to some extend, i still respect your comment.. no seperation but self determination is essential..

    fawzan Sunday, 22 September 2013 06:44 PM

    Ranil, Only southern terrorism has created LTTE. You have to ask your president whether needs LTTE any more?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Sunday, 22 September 2013 03:34 PM

    Well & good, please don't go for any War against the Govt., but compromise with the good Governance and come for a good settlement with mutual under-standings, No War again.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Sunday, 22 September 2013 03:36 PM

    This is not the end guys to boast, but to compromise with the existing Government and come for good solutions for the betterment of your area.

    Suq Madique Monday, 23 September 2013 07:27 AM

    'Masages'??? you guys running massage parlours also??

    Lobo Monday, 23 September 2013 07:30 AM

    After the euphoria has worn off the tamils will realize what they have won is a very insignificant victory as they will still be controlled by the central govt. So enjoy the feeling while it lasts.

    RamUK Sunday, 22 September 2013 02:12 AM

    I always thought we from abroad has diff of opinion regarding what Tamils wants in north and east but i was wrong. they need the freedom of expression and self ruling not buns and biscuits. We will support the funds thru PC and other forms to Development....Keep moving...

    Nimal Sunday, 22 September 2013 02:17 AM

    TNA could win all seats if it was 100 % fair election

    RamUK Sunday, 22 September 2013 02:18 AM

    LTTE please give all your funds to the people who realy needs it.

    Yes, 100% correct.

    kalu nangi Sunday, 22 September 2013 03:35 AM

    You are right. There is no separation ,,,,,,only the desire to govern their destinies. The name ITAK denotes Sri Lanka Tamils. If they wanted separation, would they call themselves Sri Lanka Tamils?

    BRANDO Sunday, 22 September 2013 09:53 AM

    What happened to the UNP in the NP?

    FOX Sunday, 22 September 2013 10:00 AM
