    Mr.AG, when you make statements you better think of your future as well, because today's situation is not for another five years time.

    AG knows, whether it's referendum or not it's going to get passed. Thank you AG for saving tax payers money.

    Sri Lanka can have referendum to find out whether Tamils wants to separate from Sri Lanka or not. Then it can use the results to counter any propaganda against the government.
