    Welldone. Keep it up.

    Gampaha and Kelaniya are seats close to each other. Hope our famous Minister will not appear on behalf of Sagara to get him released.

    The government's aim to wipe out underworld gangs, which is a good move, but at the same time, if politicians get involved then it will be a different issue. If this type of partiality is avoided, then the country could lead to better and clean tommorrow !
