    What an insult to the late Mr. Lakshman Kadiragarmar, inviting that war criminal Tony Blair to step into his country and thereafter even address the commemoration of LK. Without a doubt Mangala has done it to insult and sully the name of the greatest foreign minister this country produced. With his diabolical actions, he has once again proved that SL has not distanced itself from its colonial mentality and paying obeisance to the white man!! What a damn shame to the people of this country and to the Late Lakshman K!!

    I have seen Mr D Swaminatahan coming in as a appointed MP several times since around 1996. Could somebody please publish his credentials, so that most people will get to know him
