    Duminda did enormous service to his electorate. Why dont our people recognize that? Cant Duminda be cured by a miracle for what we has done to the country? Please leave this innocent man alone.

    What I want to know is why is the family of Duminda portraying pictures of his head injury and the surgeries carried out. We have no doubt that he was shot, and indeed a head injury is as bad as a shooting can be. We have no arguments here, so what is this family trying to say to us, is it that he was the only victim of the shooting while Bharatha Laxman shot himself and the bodyguard.

    he was in a ICU the day before yesterday... he was in a normal ward yesterday... today he is in court.... tomorrow?

    Another new game commenced for public consumption

    Seriously Monday, 06 May 2013 08:32 AM

    Actually, please release him immediately without wasting more money and time. May be there are other hearings that would bring justice to someone which could be heard instead of this waste of time.
