Dear JVP, TNA is on right direction. At this moment, we should think about the cope and the democracy. Not the personal gains and vote bank. Being neutral at this crucial stage does not help...

That’s good. Neutral means you are indirectly supporting the illegality and worse than directly supporting

All these moves are not to Devolopment this Country or to do good to the masses. It is for their own Agendas to grab power to sweep their law suits under the carpet .

Excellent. My enemy's enemy is my friend at least in certain situations with common understanding.

JVP has no existence if there is no crisis!TNA will never like a Sinhala Baudda leadership as their ultimate goal is EELAAM!Idiots who praising them open your eyes and use your brain(if have any) and think why they join hands at this instance!

Very commendable act by JVP and TNA.They should also bring an amendment to the constitution to re-introduce the ban of free cross over of MPs. As in the past MPs could only resign and by-election to be held.People should br vested with the power.All these horse trading, multi million in currencies and defenders carrying them would stop
