UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Seniviratna, who crossed over to the government yesterday, took a helicopter ride to Mahiyanganaya today for a public rally.

Seniviratna was the Deputy General Secretary of the UNP at the time he decided to cross over to the government benches to support the 18th Amendment to the constitution.

    On a different note, the helicopter shown in this image is a Robinson R44 which was the type purchased by the LTTE. Wonder if this 'chopper' was one captured by the troops??????

    Utterly shameless fellows behaving like montessori children grinning from ear to ear when given sweets. Hakeem was TAKEN FOR RIDE for a funeral Lakshman was TAKEN FOR A RIDE tomorrow Cader will distribute Kanjee using a Govt. helicopter and Pabha will go shooting on a helicopeter. These time servers do not know how it feels when they are dumped and grounded one day because the powers that may be will not live for ever as foolishly thought.
