    Sinhalese are the most foolish people in the world because they never uses their brain, They just listen to their racist politicians.

    If Modi will reached the 272 , Jaya and others doesn't have a demanding power and we'll safe.

    Ben Hurling Friday, 16 May 2014 12:02 PM

    Bad news. Modi is a right wing nationalist Hindu fanatic. via DM Android App

    Even with an absolute majority, will India change its stance towards Sri Lanka? It would be a matter of time before TN ' tail ' starts wagging the dog.

    kumar Friday, 16 May 2014 06:46 AM

    Everybody want a change except Sri Lankans.

    Gamarala Friday, 16 May 2014 07:01 AM

    Modi is an ultra Hindu nationalist. India has been a secular country so far under Congress governments. No one knows how the extreme elements of the BJP would treat Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and other religious groups. In the past we have seen BJP party members behave very badly.

    It is more important for SL to change its stance towards its minorities.

    Sammy Friday, 16 May 2014 07:27 AM

    Its only in Sri Lanka, South India (some parts) and in some other countries they came for trading. In other parts of India they came with swords and weapons, to conquer and convert.

    Saskia Friday, 16 May 2014 09:28 AM

    But, the one who openly supports to create Eelam in SL has won the election in TN and she is the best friend of Modi as well.

    nanda Friday, 16 May 2014 06:25 AM

    Indian express says " The results for potential partners in major states like west Bengal and Tamil Nadu simply don't matter".

    good for sri lanka....

    [quote name="Dharshi"]Huuuuuuuurrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh,
    This is what we really need at this point of time. If not BJP wins, the country will go to the dogs. I desperately want TN too win by BJP but it won't happen the modus operandi politicians.

    The people whom they came for trading from Far East Arab, looted, grabbed & split part of the country, destroyed temples, ancients sites, fortresses and the world's oldest & best universities in the nation but still not satisfying talking about the Kashmir and their rights.

    Leave the Arab countries, even in Kashmir a Indian Hindu couldn't buy a piece of land.

    In Sri Lanka if BBS is not formed in another 15 yrs this country become a one of the Muslim nation. It's bitter to hear but that is the fact. Please understand I am not communal but this community made us like that.[/quote]
    and you are now making other children racist.

    freking Friday, 16 May 2014 09:53 AM

    TN is not fool as your sl thugs

    freking Friday, 16 May 2014 09:56 AM

    All the best ADMK. 3rd POWER IN INDIA.

    Saskia Friday, 16 May 2014 10:24 AM

    You are not safe at all. Modi will sure ask you to implement 13A (including land and police powers). BJP is not soft like Congress, if you don't listen, they will force you to do it.

    ryan Friday, 16 May 2014 10:46 AM

    Mahinda is a left wing nataionalist buddhist frantic in the eyes of west like you, who is not. Modi is the same, he is a moderate man who gives our region the FUTURE

    Bhoja Friday, 16 May 2014 07:36 PM

    Next family politics in SL wait and watch

    Lalith P. Friday, 16 May 2014 04:35 PM

    Unless the Leaders are honest, justice and treat all citizens equally, their ruling will be a short one. With over one billion people, it's strange how India do about their daily lives and business. Sri Lanka should follow India's path.

    Public Friday, 16 May 2014 05:34 AM

    We Public in Sri Lanka respect the choices of Indian Public!

    ToyGun Friday, 16 May 2014 04:47 AM

    Oops! It is a landslide?

    Kondebendapucheena Friday, 16 May 2014 05:08 AM

    It was all about corruption and this is an eye opener for voters in Sri Lanka.

    ryan Friday, 16 May 2014 06:02 AM
