    He is suddenly awake all right! what beats me is there are still people in Sri Lanka supportive of such ignorant weaklings. THAT IS a matter of deepest concern.Same goes for all the antinational traitors in GOSL as a sector of the people blindly follow and support traitors. So what can we expect to happen to this beautiful nation Sri Lanka?An extremely sad situation. Anyone with any brains could see that all these people are playing games and NOT at all concerned about the real welfare of Sri Lanka and her people. The PEOPLE need to do something about instead of being led by their noses! MM
