    Sir, the day the cctv camera recordings got deleted you were removed from our hearts. Until then you were our hero connected to our open university. A real leader would have faced consequences come devil or the rough sea. You failed sir, Ranil has better qualities than you.

    Hon. Champika you are speaking such a manner, because you did not get Prime Minister Post. Please unite with Gammampila and leave UNP for betterment.

    Yes. That is the democratic process which Ranil praises always.
