    No matter whoever in power, irrespective of party politics the law and order must be strictly enforced by the authorities.

    Mevan Friday, 26 July 2013 04:25 AM

    This incorrigible thug should be in jail forever and his mentors should be kicked out of power.

    No Hope Friday, 26 July 2013 04:29 AM

    Well Said we too agree with you. See the kind of people surround both of them. and compare the difference.

    Hafeez M Friday, 26 July 2013 04:52 AM

    Law enforcement authorities should see that no harm is done to the TEACHER by these goons. It is not a joke, the life of this innocent teacher is in danger..!!!!.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 26 July 2013 05:55 AM

    amila Friday, 26 July 2013 06:58 AM

    If something happens to the teacher,the government should take the responsibility because this PC member was allowed to even face the interview for nominations by the party.We salute the teacher for her stand.

    Bakathapas Friday, 26 July 2013 07:02 AM

    I just do not understand why our media is trying to give him this unwarranted publicity without leaving out as just a lunatic.

    Wathsala Friday, 26 July 2013 08:37 AM

    Police escorted this goon to demonstrate how he ordered the poor teacher to kneel, he was shot and killed when he tried to grab the weapon of a cop-- how about that for the script next news outbreak!!

    Such a bull can be used for famous bull fight in Spain.

    Ranjith Silva Thursday, 25 July 2013 10:21 AM

    The Leaders of SLFP has to take the blame for the delay of taking discipline actions on its members.
    Winning the War is good, but eroding the law and order is a crime. This delay may dilute the good work in the near future.

    Porky Pig Thursday, 25 July 2013 10:22 AM

    He is a patriot. He has applied for nominations for the forthcoming elections. He must be released. This is the Banana Republic.

    How could a "patriot" like this be kept in remand at this time when the nominations have to be given in for the forthcoming PC elections.

    Mevan Thursday, 25 July 2013 11:54 AM

    He should be released with a bunch of bananas.

    Miaman Thursday, 25 July 2013 11:56 AM

    Police should have carried out the normal procedure "He tried to escape and we had to fire".

    Renu Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:03 PM

    You still want to nominate this kind of person who has no respect for law & order

    nudum Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:05 PM

    Hopefully he will out of jail before the nominations.We need people like him our parliament.

    Shan Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:07 PM

    I'm sure this is part of the on-going drama related to Dayasiri Jayasekara. Now that the Govt. needs to submit its nomination papers, this will be good excuse for them to omit him from the list, which will pave the way to the new kids who came on board......

    kandula Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:10 PM

    Shame on he part of the SLFP. He should be barred from taking any post ever.

    Mahinda Maama Thursday, 25 July 2013 12:26 PM

    Finish him .Pls. do not give Nomination to Contest for up Coming PC Election
