UNP is dead party, now it come to a position which even can not win an election and even won can not elect their member to a good position, the curse of 60000 they killed in 88-89 has fallen on UNPers

Whoever gets elected, the Citizens of DMMC gain only shit service. Majority of all roads in DMMC area are derelict and even to commence and complete a road repair of just 100 metres it takes months. The corruption is absolute catastrophic.

This is like "Koheda Yanne, Malle Poll" We voted for something but got something entirely different. Soon people will ask "why even bother vote?" and stay away. That will be a sad day for democracy.
