    Unheard of a man. The traditional practice is to appoint people who are capable to positions. Now the positions given as bribes and paid by the tax payer. Why do we pay taxes in the first place to rulers like this. Shameless blokes who take up positions and by whom it is given

    People of Sri Lanka must treat politicians like R D Ashoka Priyantha as social paraiahs. These politicians, their families, relatives and friends must be ostracized and rejected by the society. As long as these politicians are living in the country, people will have no hope of restoring rule of law and democracy.

    These are people who will have to carry the curse of a nation for generations to come. They are selling our rights as a people for their selfish gain.MR seems to attract all the scums to his party. The racists , the greedy, the opportunist and the ugly side of nationalists.
