Police recorded a statement from Minister Jeevan Kumaratunga on last Friday's incident at Moratuwa, where a group of protesters pelted stones and water bottles at the minister during a demonstration.

Minister Kumaratunga said although he had not lodged any complaint against the protesting people, the police had recorded a statement from him.

Claiming that he had no resentment against the people, who attacked him, the minister also said he would not interfere with the police investigation into the incident.(Reka Tharangani)

    Shows the anger in people, where law and order breaks down. Law is imposed only on the innocent and the powerful and rich get away with it. The powerful and the rich is only 2% of the population.

    We are not civilized people to learn from our past. 30 year war was the result of the anger in people. Of course later it went in a different track. The military cannot stop the masses. If you look at the big picture this "anger " and the trust in government is slowly demising, including the main opposition party the UNP.

    My only fear is will Sri lanka turn into another Egypt. All it takes is a spark at the right place and time.
