    With the escalation of violence among the UPFA supporters who fought among themselves for the "Manape" in a shameless manner, it was just a matter of time for blue murder to take place. "Suba Anagathayak"

    I just wish the top guys also could be rid the same way.

    Stupid driver should have taken him directly to a hospital.

    well it clearly looks related to yesterdays clash between UPFA candidates Jonny boy and some pushpakumara... intra-party rivalry will doom the country.

    How can we trust these hooligans to steer the country towards a Suba Anagathayak???

    Now our elections are worse than those in Banana Republics in the Dark Africa!

    Shot dead, just like that. No value for human life. The government has to bring law and order to this country before anything else. One Law & Order to all. No secondry means. No boady can be above the law. If the government can implment this, they need not spend on election campaign's. They would have won the voters respect.

    If anyone honestly love SL, please do reject this regime. Its catostraphic to choose these power freak animals to rule the country.

    Monday, 05 April 2010 05:48 AM

    Is gun culture becoming a part of SL society?
