Joint opposition MP Bandula Gunawardena is seen dashing coconuts outside the Sri Maha Kali Amman Kovil in Modera today, seeking the blessings of deities to save the people from the economic burden resulting from the VAT increase.

This campaign is also to make people aware of the economic crisis faced by the country.

    This doesn't solve anything.. but working together for the sake of our country in productive terms makes more sense and where we should focus..

    One side charging VAT from poor people and says to settle loans taken by MR, is it fair while charging on poor and increase the salaries and benefits of MP's and others.Please stop all salary increases and benefits to all until all loans are settled.

    What a waste of 'pol'. We could have had some delicious 'Pol Sambol' instead of wasting them like this.

    They went to the Supreme Court and the Courts were against their petition, and now they turn to the Gods. So what would their next move be?

    it seems you are lost without any religion, one time in a temple another time in Kovil, its seems both places aren't working for these politicians

    The three 'eyes' of the coconut represent the three eyes of the great god Shiva. This is used in the ritual of worship and adoration of the gods. In South Asia, coconuts are named sriphala or fruit of the gods and they symbolise complete usefulness, selfless service, prosperity and generosity. I wonder whether these so called educated minister is aware of what is he doing rather than copying some religious ritual.

    Shows the level of political bankruptcy among some of our so called rational, elite, politicians.
