    Ya, ya, they are loosing popularity since 2005. We saw it in past elections. Going down each day !!!!

    Mala Silva Wednesday, 06 October 2010 11:37 AM

    Another gimmick by showing the government's old weapons to turn the attention away from SF issue. Public are no fools.

    Athukorala Wednesday, 06 October 2010 12:31 PM

    Dear pwc, Are you a one of those who feel fear when sensing the name SF?

    saman Wednesday, 06 October 2010 12:43 PM

    yeah ! so he need not to order from North Korea

    Wasantha Wednesday, 06 October 2010 01:06 PM

    What has happened to the container load of gold jewelery detected just after the conclusion of the war?. Very recently SF queried the matter in the Parliament but not replied.

    Man B Wednesday, 06 October 2010 01:31 PM

    seems like there will be a weapon sea under the Vanni district.

    tiss Wednesday, 06 October 2010 02:14 PM

    Thank you DM for openin a forum for all those people who are against Sri Lanka and majority of its citizents to air out their thoughts filled with defeatism, hatred, and disappointment

    Pottu Wednesday, 06 October 2010 03:28 PM

    Is this news the truth, or just releasing of some cooked up discovery, preparing the masses for something bad news?

    UPFA Wednesday, 06 October 2010 07:06 PM

    "No katha" about cash and jeweleries were found in killinochchi

    Athukorala Wednesday, 06 October 2010 09:20 AM

    Ask from KP, He may know it. He has kept those to in case necessary.

    Smart Aleck Wednesday, 06 October 2010 09:30 AM

    Gift them to our "Friend" KP.

    spark Wednesday, 06 October 2010 09:44 AM

    Thats the way to plant things and have the focus move away from SF's imprisonment to threat from the tamils.

    Hasiya Wednesday, 06 October 2010 09:51 AM

    now this is without the help of SF

    Roshan DW Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:10 AM

    How come they don't find CASH or GOLD?

    pwc Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:28 AM

    These people have no other word except SF. Even in the sleep dreaming SF SF SF and SF ............

    pwc Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:29 AM

    They all in Danuna'smother's locker !!!!!

    ajith Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:05 AM

    This is amazing! They found all these weapons and no one was shot while trying to throw a bomb at them!!!

    ajith Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:37 AM

    This is governments gimmick to gain popular as they are loosing popularity.

    Hasiya Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:38 AM

    Thats the truth dude

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:24 AM

    Whever some arms cache is found - planted or otherwise - that is given wide publicity but so far, the government is quiet on the gold and cash found from LTTE hide-outs. Can someone account for those too?

    CW Wednesday, 06 October 2010 11:12 AM

    People l like Ajith are like the JVPers & UNPers. Never believed the forces for their own political (dis)advantage.
