    Look at the 4th Picture, Police fellows seem to be enjoying the scene, because they don't feel the pinch of electricity tariff hike.

    When Thomas Alva Addison invented the light bulb someone queried him - what is the use of it?. He has told the person that somebody will tax it very soon and don't worry. So the inventor is the culprit of all these protest and antics.

    Must have been organized by the UNP. Only UNP is capable of organizing meaningless and laughable protests or rather a pass time judging by the 4th picture.

    For this very reason the government is not threatened nor takes the party serious.

    This is what we call modern world. Remember village life with chimney lamp is always the best and healthy.
