    Why not these 2 roads? Are you still scared that the public whose vote you want will come in buses to demo as the LTTE is dead. What about the area behind Temple trees? This is working against you as the people who are given a sit down meal MIGHT vote for you but not those who are given parcels as they feel that you are treating them in an inferior way. The beggars near the Gal palliya have increased as the people who get packets feel so insulted they dont want to take it home. Lalith Wije
