    Tom Jones - In which planet are you living. Travis Sinniah has got Tamil speaking blood in his body

    Facts was not Tamil blood, he was against Russian ship deal.

    The main reason is that commander Sinnaih was investigating about yoshitha rajapakse's illegal entry to the navy and abduction and killing of the innocent tamil and muslim youths for ransom by wasantha karannagoda's team.

    One of the best in the army, wish him more success. This move is likely to be the only good decision by an eight grader.
