    අපිටා වැරදුනු වාර අනන්තය.

    විශ්වවිද‍යාල සිසුන් පාරට බහින කොට අපේ රටේ ජනාතව කිවේ "මුන්ට"ඉගෙනා ගන්නා බැරිව දේශපාලන පක්ෂ වෙලටා දරදිය අදිනවා" එතකොට උසස් අධ‍යාපාන අමැති කියන්නෙත් පෙරුටුගාමි එකට හරි ජවිපෙ එකට කඩෙ යනවා කියලා. ඉලගට අපේ රටේ මාධ‍ය අමැති කියන ටික ඊට වඩා හොදට කියනවා, පෙන්නනවා.
    ඔය කියන කිසි දෙයක් එතන නැ ඔවුන් කැ ගහන්නෙ මේ රටේ සැබැ ප්‍රශ්න වෙනුවෙනි, ඔවුන්ගෙ සැබැ ප්‍රශ්න වෙනුවෙනි.
    රතුපස්වල ජනයාද කැ ගැසුවේ තමන්ගේ පානීයා ජල අතිය වෙනුවෙනි.එය අවසන් වන විට තිදෙනෙකුට මරු කැදවා අවසන්ය... මෙය ඉතිහසයක් නැවත කියවන්නක්මය...

    it was always home vs home. Now we can see on our own TV how the army behaves. We have a very disciplined (a relative ten) and skillful (a relative term) army. This is all on video now. That is why the journalist were attacked first.

    Have to investigate who gave the order to use live bullets. Whole Army & Police were not responsible for this case. Because of one or two fool high-rank officers the Army & Police should not be criticized. Why the government protecting this factory owners is another question. All who scarified their lives to get clean water are heroes. May attain Nibbana.

    A battle hardened force shouldn't have treated an unarmed crowd as its enemy . They wanted water but, they were given blood.

    Vote for this regime again and again so that they can keep on killing innocent people. All these days they killed Tamils, but they started killing our own lot. Long live to this regime .
