    We are not bothered about these elections . Our worries are about ourselves and not politics in future.

    THE MAIN CONCERN FOR SLPP AND GOVT IS WHETHER WE CAN CONDUCT ELECTION ON 20 JUNE OR NOT. GOVT IS INDIRECTLY PRESSING EC TO HOLD ELECTIONS EARLY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

    Hope and pray the Supreme Court has not been threatened or bribed as of now.
