    Why not send Upeksha to Dilky to learn about what the Constitution of Sri Lanka means?

    Well Ranil, you have no control of you party and its elected members. Do you still think you are the leader of the UNP. Sir, time to pack up and leave, honorably.

    1) Does Upeksha know what is there on the Amendment? From her interview in 360 in Derana, I dont think so..
    2) Today will be the end of Democracy in Sri Lanka.. 3) Ranil needs to now step down.. big time.. People need to help reconstruct the UNP...
    4) Can't there be a 'Janamatha Wimasuma' about the 18th amendment???

    Forget about Ranil. Forget about UNP. What do the Sri Lankans who voted for these people feel now? Isn't this betrayal at the highest level possible? I have some sympathy for Ranil.

    Is this Democracy? The government never got a 2/3rds majority from the people. They have accumulated the 2/3rds by dodgy methods like this. Shame! Shame! Shame!

    This clearly shows that many UNP'ers are embittered due to the lackluster leadership of Ranil and not to forget the infighting between Sajith and Ravi etc

    Candidates should resign, if they wish to change their stand! With every passing day people are made to feel more powerless by such actions, on the part of of those elected!

    It is highly unethical to have them elected to betray their constituents.

    Just because they are angry and fed up with Ranil is no reason for them to vote for the 18th Amendment which any fool can see will be the end of Democracy. Actually, these people were simply waiting for an opportunity to get on the band wagon and Ranil's pig headedness gave them the perfect opportunity.
