    Ruwan, Heroes will never betray the country and its people. secondly never think these 150 fellows as the public voices. These 150 fellows are always against for everything, i think something very wrong with them Ruwan.

    If jerks are the ones who want to protest against the extrajudicial imprisonment of Sarath Fonseka, I proudly want to be one more jerk.

    Matalan Tuesday, 08 February 2011 01:21 PM

    They attempted similar protest last week (didn't u know?)but were attacked & nearly killed by Buth packet + Rs.100 thugs. People who voted for thugs must take blame - not the govt.

    doha boy Tuesday, 08 February 2011 01:38 PM

    Don't comment blindly......... can't you see MP Ranjan Ramanayake representing the UNP ??

    Cobra Tuesday, 08 February 2011 01:50 PM

    Cobra Tuesday, 08 February 2011 01:52 PM

    Might as well knock your head against the wall, Dingi!!!
