    The intelligence agencies should be vigilant during this period. There could be more attempts to spark racial conflict during this time. They may even get more creative than the last.

    If MR comes as the new PM on the 5th April he will say "sorry Man no we cannot do what u want u can take them n go" So no more fish exports to EU n no more Euros for our fisherman. Will the fisherman think of this when they vote ? in the next election. UNP does not know to market all what they hv done. So people think RW n gang has not done anything to the country.
