    Why only pull down posters pasted by the opposition parties?

    A Sri Lankan Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:15 PM

    The Governments are formed and ousted not by the voters within the Colombo City Limits..

    Iluminatis Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:40 PM

    only for SF's posters ?

    Watchman Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:40 PM

    Why R's are afraid of SF?

    monarawila nilame Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:48 PM

    Hooooooooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooo

    Citizen Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:49 PM

    Are there CCTV cameras also ??? Why now sudden care for the environment ........Please remove also the jumbo posters & garbage posters of politicos at election time and also the noise pollution and chaos their escorts create on the roads, harrassing the public citizens.

    Shivanka David Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:41 PM

    Good News!! at last !! seems like colombo is becoming civilized now !! but this conditions should apply for election times as well .

    AF Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:52 PM

    SUBA your comment doesn’t bring any sense. Dictatorship also required our county to maintain the discipline.

    OneLanka Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:57 PM

    Well done now the city will look cleaner.............what happens to house walls out of the city.

    Jagath Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:31 PM

    Bottom iine is to prevent JVP carrying out a poster propaganda against the government & in support of SF.

    Gamaya Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:11 PM

    Eka Adhipathi...

    bash Saturday, 09 October 2010 05:15 PM

    BRAVE POLICE.. eh?

    Sri Lankan Saturday, 09 October 2010 06:41 PM

    Government may have different motives, but this is a good thing.

    polkiccha Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:14 PM

    which general?

    polkiccha Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:15 PM

    are there any other candidates than UPFA candidates? by the time of the next poll the remaining UNP candidates will be in the UPFA as well.

    polkiccha Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:15 PM

    i could tell you if you really want to know

    TP Sunday, 10 October 2010 02:49 AM

    SO SORRY,....ALL THE NOTICE bOARDS HS BEEN TAKEN OVER ON A VERY LONG LEASE BY THE RULING PARTY. PLIGHT OF OTHERS....

    Rosh Sunday, 10 October 2010 03:01 AM

    This is a good move Colombo must reflect a modern city and not look cheap and tacky. Now can we also get a solution to the garbage problem as well by the environmental division of the police?

    ami Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:45 AM

    That may be valid to a certain amount of people including U...not for people like us !

    xlntgson Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:51 AM

    Anyhow it is a good move, welcome to implement without partiality!

    Tharaka Chanaka Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:26 AM

    can we paste SF's release photo's on these posts?

    Suba Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:28 AM

    Another step towards the confirmation of a Dictatorship.

    Deepal Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:31 AM

    No! not on lavatory walls

    sw Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:39 AM

    A..H....with no B...., that is the Police force we got.

    Labby Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:41 AM

    and the specified 250 notice boards are strictly for use by the Rajapakse's

    Fairose Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:41 AM

    But not pictures distorted or disfigured.

    nagasena Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:41 AM

    Ha ha ...Police Environment Division?

    Katussa Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:45 AM

    Baba Boo Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:46 AM

    Not only there are afraid of the general they are also afraid of the posters.

    Tharaka Chanaka Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:25 AM

    *conditions apply. ...Posters containing the Rajapakse name and picture can be pasted anywhere.

    Katussa Saturday, 09 October 2010 11:00 AM

    These will not apply during the next elections or at least not to the UPFA candidates.

    botar Saturday, 09 October 2010 11:20 AM

    Hitler Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:09 PM

    Heh... Heh... Heh....

    A Sri Lankan Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:10 PM

    Do any thing.. But these are clear signs of the government being concerned about the SF factor.
