    Janaka from Matara Monday, 10 December 2018 05:32 PM

    sunil Monday, 10 December 2018 04:02 PM

    Sirisena has gone mad by trying to save Rajapakse family from gallows/prison. Aiyo Sirisena!

    public Monday, 10 December 2018 04:13 PM

    Funny, but unlikely to be successful.

    Typical UNP Monday, 10 December 2018 04:16 PM

    Ms. Jayawardena’s application should’ve read as President’s mental status and 225 parliamentarians financial status to be inquired....

    Sun Monday, 10 December 2018 04:35 PM
