A lorry that transported dummies of loaves of bread and coconut made of cardboard, to be used at the JVP protest rally, was taken into police custody this evening at Peliyagoda, JVP MP Vijitha Herath said.

Mr. Herath said that three persons including the driver of the lorry were also taken in. “We do not understand why it is. We lodged a complaint against the police. Initially, they were reluctant to entertain our complaint. Some senior police officers avoided answering our telephone calls. Finally, we managed to do it,” he said.

The party held a rally using these dummies at Lipton Circus today as a mark of protest against the rising living costs.(KB)

    I think Mervin has to learn grammar before he comment about JVP dummies. Fogs who live in wells don’t understand that people has got right to protest since they have not enjoyed the privileges of democracy, please come out from well and see what is happening in some other countries in the world.sri Lankans who live in other countries has access to see your comments and we badly understand your poor mentality, sorry to say ( doopath manasikathwaya )

    Nishantha Rajapakse Friday, 19 November 2010 01:02 PM

    Well said. They should have left the dummy loaves alone and arrested the JVP dummies.

    bash Friday, 19 November 2010 08:36 AM

    Yes men. You will not be allowed to as you are a Dummy yourself.

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Friday, 19 November 2010 08:44 AM

    If the government is fear of dummies, they would arrest all the JVPers. But why do the JVP spend money on dummies? why can't they give this money to poor party supporters.

    Kithul Ramba Thursday, 18 November 2010 09:06 PM

    Even the dummies are not safe with this Govt. This is because we are ruled by dumms.This Govt is making fool of themselves..What can we say nothing , if we did White van or Govt Thugs will visit us.

    Rahumathullah Friday, 19 November 2010 10:23 AM

    Now a days, the task of our police and armed forces is to go behind the opposition political parties. They are no longer engaged in combating crimes. Shame!

    Police should not not have stopped, they should have taken the JVP members also into custody since they are also a bunch of dummies.
