    So there was no shooting, water canons or tear gas. Two laws in one Banana country.

    I guess then the argument will be limited to certain families only . On the contrary if the disqualification is for another reason then the approach is different .

    Anuradha someone has to start from somewhere. If you and your father has clean hands no one can blackmail you'll. If so come forward fearlessly and save the country from present corrupt dictatorship. We need a country which honors democracy and also where Justice and democratic rights of its people are safeguarded.

    After spending huge amount government money and resources, it is no surprise that he got the highest number of preferantial votes. But that does not mean he has the maturity to take the CM or any other ministrial posts on the CP.

    At the recent UN forum MR said policing of small states by powerful state(s). Look at our powerful Govt., doing the same to us the poor masses. This is natural from the king eras that powerful always intimidates & policing the poor. What ever comes thru the teeth is reverting back at you. Very bad foreign policy advisers or sitting on the brain.

    Any way you are all in one party. If you all think that we have come forward to give service to people and not for the sake of holding big posts or etc.,, be calm without making problems to public or public places, and solve things in your own compounds. It should be the nature of true politicians.
