MP Sajith Premadasa was named as the Leader of the Opposition together with other MPs took part in the Satyagraha. Pix by Pradeep Pathirana
What nonsense is this? On behalf of one of the most blatantly corrupt individuals that's is Patali.

Aneh, you people said this is not a Sinhala Buddhist country. Now following traditions. How pathetic, stop insulting Sri Lanka

there are many Tamils in prison without any charges for more than 10 years. If any of them committed crimes, they can be charged if not they should be released.
None of the politicians ever did a demonstration for their justice

adding pollution to already polluted air. Sathyagarhaya has succeeded in magically erasing the camera footage.

All these commotion could be avoided if Champika could prove he was not the the driver. Seems he is unable and expects his supporters to bail him out.

Rajitha proves that he suffers from a serious schizophrenia condition with his deadly-smile-at-the-wrong-moment-syndrome

Mr Sarath Fonseka was dreaming to become Minister of security and Presidential candidate is also here. If Mr Champika was arrested for hit and run offence, why these people stage "Sthyagraha" drama. This childish act will be used against UNP candidates in coming general election, will lead to lose the election too.

If Offending perpetrators are defended in such a manner,there is no need of law
DHA Tuesday, 24 December 2019 12:49 AM
AIYOOOO Mr. Sajith you still have not learned your lessons ! your still associating with the devils who cut your throat at the concluded Presidential elections ! and more importantly these types of baseless protests will only bring your reputation down
Chamara Senanayake Tuesday, 24 December 2019 01:18 AM
Stupid people of Sri Lanka trying to protect someone who ran down a poor guy and covered up the act for 3 years. So stupid. now aligning with the crooks.
Tony Tuesday, 24 December 2019 01:19 AM
Sathyanigraha it looks like !
Dr Dasarath Jayasuriya Tuesday, 24 December 2019 01:32 AM
Let the courts do their jobs. This looks like a bunch of crooks safeguarding the interests of a fellow crook. The voters are disgusted, as they voted these guys to develop policy to benefit the Nation. Not to seek publicity canvassing for a accused hit and run driver. It was nice to see Rajitha practicing what he should be doing himself soon, when he is behind bars. Praying to the divine!!
Saman Tuesday, 24 December 2019 02:18 AM
Good to see the gang !
M.c. Jayawardena Tuesday, 24 December 2019 03:10 AM
Unp will lose more votes at the next elections because of this type of shows which is none other than campaigns to save filthy criminal party members. Sajith must drop rajitha,champlika and mangala who are hated by majority Sri Lankan’s if he wants to get more votes this time.
Ram Tuesday, 24 December 2019 03:40 AM
Will Rajitha too get a similar Puja when he is arrested
Dr. Ananda Seneviratne Tuesday, 24 December 2019 04:49 AM
He had a hit-and-run accident and seriously disabling a young person and also misled the Police and the courts. Why the hell these politicians support him??I guess because all these people are agreeing what he did. Good for them. NOBODY should vote and elect these morons.

hoodwinker Tuesday, 24 December 2019 06:18 AM
This is because , when it was your turn you did a U turn, and not punished anybody!
Max Tuesday, 24 December 2019 06:18 AM
Thieves and thieves about to jail also participated
s. abeydeera Tuesday, 24 December 2019 06:19 AM
this is lesson to the drivers irrespective of position if accident occur like that your responsibility is to help to the victims and discuss with their parents about matter concern and take necessary action or not run out from the seen . most of politician' s children wives met with accident and escape their influence this should not let happen in future

Ha haa what a poetic justice for these lunatic aesthetic බගර්ස්...

Good thing to do. This is purely political revenge. But it will backfire on this govt.
