    A criminal released, caused an utter injustice not only to the Railway Department but for the people of Matale in whole.

    Mayor's intervention can be for a public purpose. That does not mean that he can take the law to his own hands. I don't wish to see the irregularity regularised later and the matter settled. These settlements are the reasons for arrogant behaviors by Politicians

    The Aluvihares are an old and respectable family in Matale, but I suppose old and respectable families also produce idiots sometimes.

    If he can't do that what is the purpose of being the Mayor.
