    Ranil seems to have been caught flat footed within the UNP after 26 yrs. The SJB should ask him to go fly a kite now.

    What a shameless guy. He is working for the whims and fancies of MR so he could become opposition leader again and live a lavish life on public money.

    Sajith and his associates are not fools like Ranil and his selfish crowd

    Talking must come to an end immediately without dragging the issues.

    Chux Tuesday, 03 March 2020 04:25 PM

    You should be out of politics forever

    Ranil will discuss this and trap Sajith giving him no chance to take his campaign forward.....similar to the Presidential election.
