    MR. Maiththree , you can be the Mr.Clean once you win the election...until then you got to be very much aggressive , and have strategies for counter attacks when ever needed , Ranil is still in the opposition since he is not an aggressive politician Do every thing what MR does in the opposite direction.Otherwise you will be eternally in the opposition Do every thing in Sri Lankan Style !!!
