    We don't need an impartial incident. Please do not appoint a commission . We know the outcome.

    Siri Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:14 AM

    People are now blaming the President even for accidents, rain, infanticides, rapes, thuggery, Bank holdups, ransom demands, murders, bread prices and even appointing LTTE leaders as advisors! What a country!!

    Saradiel Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:58 PM

    Just remember. Every rising wave ends up crashing and has to recede to normalcy. Then there will be another to replace the spent wave.

    Observer from Qatar Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:28 AM

    Civilians, Religious prelates, commanders, no one can open their mouth against discrimination in this country with the ruling of Junta.

    Dilan Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:29 AM

    Must be a set up to silence him.

    nishan Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:29 AM

    Is it really an accident.....? Wonder of Asia

    Revenge Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:30 AM

    This is no surprise. But what will Ven. Kamburugamuwe Vajira Thero receive ?

    Nalin Pradeep Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:35 AM

    Ven. Thera, please be careful. There will be many many unseen challenges against you, after the speech you delevered few days ago. Because, you fight with dangerous people in a non-democracy environment.

    Doha-Qatar Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:20 AM

    accident? or incident?

    kris Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:36 AM

    I am sure the truck is from Kelaniya Area. Many incidents to follow. Lets wait and see.

    ind Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:37 AM

    God has given a warning for appearing on behalf of trator/theif.

    chandima Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:38 AM

    Those who are behind this crime will receive their due soon. One cannot just get away by trying to harm clergy just because they have opposing political views.

    The monsoon is still continuing with thunder showers.

    ACG Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:40 AM

    Funny!! It had to happen today?? Don't give up, please.

    priyan Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:40 AM

    i hope this is a accident. but this government can go to such pathetic level to punish opponents. is this the freedom of speech.? ven thero will keep fighting. country needs you at this hour.

    Fairose Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:41 AM

    He escaped an accident similar to late Mr. Sripathi Sooriyaratchi. Anyone who dispute this government, destined to face the destiny by accident. What a funny bunch of rulers who fool a large segment of the population. Who should shoulder the blame for this plight. "The people who elect them or the policians who fool them daily by promises that are impossible to achieve by this administration".

    TMA Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:50 AM

    What a coincidence?

    lakmal Thursday, 07 October 2010 07:56 AM

    I just came to my mind " Sripath Sooriyaarachi" s accident.

    Hippo Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:07 AM

    Was the learned doctor around with his kudu gang

    J Dan Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:08 AM

    well planned.

    nishan Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:08 AM

    Ven. Kamburugamuwe Vajira Thero will be escorted with no.of vehicles, no wonder in that

    MK Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:10 AM

    NO ... more like bad driving...!!

    sunilp Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:10 AM
