    I am not a politically bias person. But feel that JHU has every rights to refrain from supporting former front which again expected to be filled with rogues and socially rejected discarded maroons. All the best!

    Dear Mr Champika,Remember what you preached last year when you were in Australia , you may have a short memory, but not the people who love their country of birth,why not join hands with Mr Ranil and show your true colour.Don

    At least these people have the resolve to get out of UPFA and contest unlike rotten and antediluvian parties like MEP.

    Sincere Sunday, 05 July 2015 03:29 PM

    This is not a move to check vote base, but to free the country from corrupted politicians and the slaves. This must be the priority.
