    Do you know how and why the LTTE was able to wage war against a sovereign state for 37 years? It's because of ungrateful, unpatriotic, self centered individuals like you!

    So where are the 18 billion dollars MR and family had allegedly stolen? This was one of the biggest "Yahapalanya" slogans during the election.
