    What a pathetic situation! Took me close to 2 hours to move 5KM! Why can't you rehearse somewhere else for everyones sake! Would the US ever have a military parade rehearsal in Wall Street!!

    Justice Seeker Monday, 13 May 2013 07:30 AM

    Get us airways then at bus fare if you are so desperate in having such rehearsals.

    saman Monday, 13 May 2013 07:29 AM

    I suggest , they should use Mattala Intl Aiport for such event !
    they can rehearse nearby MR Cricket ground !

    ANTON Monday, 13 May 2013 07:29 AM

    BY THE WAY , ARE LIQUOR SHOPS CLOSED ON VICTORY DAY ?

    Melfort Monday, 13 May 2013 05:02 AM

    The poor man is always at the receiving end. What a pity.

    Chewing Gum Monday, 13 May 2013 05:03 AM

    Typical third world country.

    Buffaloa Citizen Monday, 13 May 2013 07:41 AM

    Then the tamils in wellawatte cannot see it.

    Buffaloa Citizen Monday, 13 May 2013 07:44 AM

    When the dumb hench-aiyas who are orgnaising this feel the Kings ego is satisfied.

    Buffaloa Citizen Monday, 13 May 2013 07:46 AM

    It doesnt matter, you can still buy from the closest black market...ask any policemen where it is.

    Coastal-beruwala Monday, 13 May 2013 05:17 AM

    people have to pay for this rehearsals cost also as their vehicle's fuel vested in this traffic jam!

    rathne Monday, 13 May 2013 05:32 AM

    Why can't they organize this in Hambantota?????

    Freedom Monday, 13 May 2013 08:06 AM

    please celebrate the Victory day ceremony At Hambantota....Week days people are having a hard time .....

    Aghast Monday, 13 May 2013 08:07 AM

    Good rhetorical question. Why not combine this with the national day and change the name to "Independence and Reconciliation Day"?

    Desahithsiyek Monday, 13 May 2013 05:44 AM

    Will move this parade to Jaffna, mulathiv or hambanthota.

    Nirmal Fernando Monday, 13 May 2013 05:43 AM

    RW Monday, 13 May 2013 06:02 AM

    Ranbanda Monday, 13 May 2013 06:11 AM

    Why can't they start @ 9 am , then the office crowed has already moved in. This will be good for both parties.

    Sim Monday, 13 May 2013 08:39 AM

    Just Another Citizen Monday, 13 May 2013 06:26 AM

    Victory Parade, whilst crime rate & corruption is on the increase. Excellent.

    No, no this is to remind the Sinhalese people that I liberated the country from LTTE this day, So all public funds and Govt. assets are belong to my family & me.

    lyza Monday, 13 May 2013 09:01 AM

    Yeah, if you don't risk getting groped by the masses. I would also advise you not to take a DSLR camera.

    Dee Monday, 13 May 2013 09:12 AM

    CriticRoshan Tuesday, 14 May 2013 01:17 AM

    This traffic jam is fast selling item, earlier it was at Bamba, and now at Kollupitiya, also I see them at Dehiwala up to Mount Lavinia too.

    Ann Monday, 13 May 2013 07:03 AM

    Any idea if the general public can view the parade? maybe take a few pics? (for a blog.. not to bash anyone.. just to write about the parade)
