    'SLFP OBU' would be a better name

    True. No strong government = no development. Defeating Rajapakshe is the biggest mistake our people made in recent history.

    Compared to GL, you are an undeveloped seed my friend.

    He is the third academic I know of who dabbled in politics. eventually they contributed nothing to society academically or politically. They had the astute knack of making the wrong decision and backing the wrong cause - always.

    GL HAS AT LAST GOT A JOB TEMPORARILY THOUGH

    The word Eksath which binds the bud with the tree has been dropped. Hence the bud has been already fallan down. M.R. has taken G. L. for a ride. via DM Android App
