    Don't you know it differs from person to person here in this banana republic?

    johan Saturday, 10 March 2018 09:10 PM

    When they want votes they will show their 33 Teeth and go and beg worst than a beggar.After getting elected for a useless councilor job they are free to do anything they wants like heroes and Chandiyas.The party should cancel their membership forever

    Isn't Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksha going to remand prison to visit this Desapremee Couple and isn't he making a statement to the effect that this government is taking revenge on this innocent couple ?

    Sinhalese lower class women are as deadlier as their men.I hope she with her husband are sent to jail for long time.

    This culture created by the previous regime.

    paala Saturday, 10 March 2018 10:10 PM

    Couple exposed their real colour,they are third class people they them self assuming as somebody because their political connections thinking they are too big to jail,chandi mallli too considered as politically manipulated gangster, people of Beliatta can add more

    Upul Saturday, 10 March 2018 10:13 PM

    There is more than enough evidence for the justice system to put this thug family in prison without bail for a long period. If that is done, it will at least teach other thug politicians and their families not to behave like animals.

    Sampath Saturday, 10 March 2018 10:34 PM

    I hate bus drivers. But what she did was wrong. She has no right to break any citizen like that.

    Yamuna Monday, 12 March 2018 03:57 PM

    I agree with you bus drivers behave like roads belong to them If driver started I 'll react same as her

    It looks the daughter-in-law of the underworld-famed father-in-law is more underworld than the father-in-law! This whore should not be given bail and made to languish in the Prison loo!

    Leo Sunday, 11 March 2018 08:43 AM

    Let the pohottuwa voters see whom they voted for in action.

    Roy Sunday, 11 March 2018 09:16 AM

    It seems these people who have commented here on the incident do not know the difference between voting on one's stomach and politicking

    Thugs are serving people in Sri Lanka... God bless mother land..

    rajitha7 Sunday, 11 March 2018 09:53 AM

    I think you can safely skip the word "allegedly"

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Sunday, 11 March 2018 12:20 PM

    Serves the people right for voting thugs into power. This thug SPC member M.K.Kasun is said to be the son of the late thug M.K. Ranjith (Chandi Malli) who was also a member of the SPC. Why did the people vote for a thug?

    Southpaw Sunday, 11 March 2018 09:22 PM

    Because they are all retarded.

    malij Sunday, 11 March 2018 01:02 PM

    All the former King's men

    malij Sunday, 11 March 2018 01:19 PM

    Chandi malli, Hichchi malli, Kalu malli, Kudu malli, Kassippu malli all have one thing in common. All are former king's men.

    Chandi Nangi T Sunday, 11 March 2018 02:16 PM

    What an insult! These kind of so called politicians should be BANNED forever not to step any where close to politics... to save not just our generation also the future of our grand kids! Shame

    Sincere Sunday, 11 March 2018 02:27 PM

    Most probably both of them will contest the forthcomimg SPC elections. The pictures are ideal for their election posters.

    Anura Sunday, 11 March 2018 03:09 PM

    Sad, in this ear, pistol is not a toy, but those days.....

    Mevan Sunday, 11 March 2018 03:14 PM

    MK Ranjith was a goon of MR. All MR goons were thugs and what will happen if they are given power to rule again.

    Louise Sunday, 11 March 2018 04:24 PM

    How primitive is that because hopes he loses his PC member post such leaders and also his wife are not viable for the country.

    Lankaputha Sunday, 11 March 2018 09:11 PM

    Where is our Law and Order Minister? In or out of the Country?

    ND Thursday, 15 March 2018 01:14 PM

    What arrogance! These are the type of thugs and hooligans running our country now. Is it a wonder that the country is in this situ!!! It is time that the educated youth who possess a high level of integrity residing in and outside the country come forward to save this nation. May be it's just a dream of mine!!!

    Ben Friday, 16 March 2018 03:56 PM
