    Students must sue the ruling party demanding compensation.

    politics without regrets is not possible in our country...
    using sorry after the incident won't rectify the false...

    Nodrog Wednesday, 22 August 2012 03:52 PM

    Would have been better if Berty had apologized for the incident. A gentleman would have done it.

    nirmal Wednesday, 22 August 2012 03:31 PM

    why this old generation (Politicos) are so unkind to young generation.

    Minister Wednesday, 22 August 2012 03:06 PM

    No use of crying through nose after damage is done. You should have planned to avoid it beforehand. Your tears will not give a solution to the already affected students.

    mahasona Wednesday, 22 August 2012 03:13 PM

    Yes that is true.Hear what Fowzie idiot said about Milton.In Sri Lanka the third class politics were introduced by JR+Premadasa+Muslim Congress and TNA.Dalas is a false hypocrite like Premadasa and this is Sri Lankan politics.Ranil and Sajith is doing worse for SL with Muslim Congress and TNA

    shan Wednesday, 22 August 2012 01:54 PM

    Berty will not worry about this, and any how he will get the vote by using his batalio

    hawkins Wednesday, 22 August 2012 01:34 PM

    At least this guy had the guts to admit the damage done to the students who got disturbed due to UPFA meeting.

    Arachchi Wednesday, 22 August 2012 01:22 PM

    “As a responsible political party, the UPFA will ....." is that true..?

    nalaka Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:18 AM

    either Berty is lying or UPFA is lying

    ramkuumar Wednesday, 22 August 2012 11:31 AM

    No point in regret now, very stern action be taken and bring before court to give tough punishment to those who are directly and indirectly involved. Will the party do now?. Hi voters over to you.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 22 August 2012 11:24 AM

    Every time they commit some stupid blunder, they promise not to repeat in future but where is the responsibility and accountability for what they have already done. "Kawda Mewata Waga Kiyanne?".

    Kautilya Wednesday, 22 August 2012 10:40 AM

    No need regretting after irreparable damage has been done.

    Tokyo Wednesday, 22 August 2012 10:34 AM

    Typical way passing the things to future. No action is taken to what happened now but telling that not allow to let it occur again.

    Sapumal Bandara Wednesday, 22 August 2012 10:00 AM

    Showing scant respect for Law & Order has become the accepted norm of this UPFA Govt.
    Disgusting behaviour from the highest lebel right to the bottom.

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:41 AM

    As a responsible political party? My foot.
    Never this country had such an irresponsible party.

    ran Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:39 AM

    Elections Commissioner had asked the UPFA to take action against Mr. Dissanayake not to expressed its remorse

    maga Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:36 AM

    Thanks for understanding and apology. But Birty denies and he will suffer by votes counting. Vote only Gentleman .

    Sagarika Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:20 AM

    "Koheda Yanne Malley Pol" Atitude!

    kan Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:26 AM

    next time 'look before you leap'. Now it is 'medicine after death', no use regretting.

    Public Abilik Wednesday, 22 August 2012 09:01 AM

    Too little, Too late.. The election campaign was already held. future promises hold little water.
