    This is like a thief giving a dog a bone to keep him occupied while the thief robs the house.

    This is what Mahindananda is doing to cover up his lies,incapabilities and frauds in the eve of the election period.And also he wants to turn away the people's and opposition parties attention towards cricket and Karuna Amman story so that masses will forget the back drop of Govt.policies against unfilled promises etc.past eight months in power.

    Already it is proved beyond doubt as per published document that Sports Ministry has given consent to add 2 players to original squad due to injuries. Therefore these questioning are just waste of time

    These are political gimmicks to distract people from real issues. Sri Lanka is heading for a family dictatorship. Please educate your friends, neighbours, coworkers etc not to vote for these politicians and political misfits.
