    Publish the names of the ministers who use cocaine, their names must be revealed to the public.

    It is unfair that you are calling this drugs addictors as law makers. Out parliament has long respectful house in the world. Why dont you call them as 'drugs addicts', ''Khudugarayo''. Impunity men among Respectful Parliamentrarians. Ranjan should be given additional securities by STF.

    It is rare to see a politician confess to having used cocaine. Visions of corruption in politics are often dotted with cocaine use. However no politicians were arrested for using cocaine or even investigated for usage because of political influence and powerful connections. President Obama openly and casually admitted to using cocaine.

    Giving the names to PM is good. Now all UNPers named must be asked to ASAP obtain and provide their blood, hair or urine reports and prove their innocence. If they fail to do within a prescribed time they must be kicked out. The lab must be nominated by the PM. Let us watch how genuine is the PM in handling the issue

    So the ruling party has its own personal problems. That is why they have put the people's problems in abeyance and completely forgotten that they have a duty to govern the country.

    Allow a good supply of cocaine and heroin flow into the Parliament and let all 225 idiots consume and drown in it and perish. That is the best thing that can happen to Sri Lanka.

    Seems CID has the report. Give Prez the same report and ask him to nominated a lab for blood testing, not Ranil. PM is in this too because of his cronies
