    Godaya Friday, 03 January 2014 03:51 PM

    You were denied justice. So better to serve as a good lawyer to the country rather than becoming a part of this filthy game.

    Jagath Liyanage Friday, 03 January 2014 03:31 PM

    Namal Perera Friday, 03 January 2014 02:14 PM

    Hope she will not go to such low levels to join the Political Party that murdered her father and let the murderers get away free.

    MrRetort Friday, 03 January 2014 01:59 PM

    Hirunika, Support the UPFA if UPFA support you to get the punishment for your father's killers.

    Gamini Friday, 03 January 2014 09:13 AM

    She was singing 'songs of praise' at UPFA rallies.

    Another useless politico in the making.

    Handipora Friday, 03 January 2014 09:12 AM

    I too think the best option is to keep off politics.

    Concerned citizen Friday, 03 January 2014 08:44 AM

    why bother? Go and jack the hand to strengthen it! May be you can sing again on the stage also. Are u waiting for the invitation?

    Gamarala Friday, 03 January 2014 08:28 AM

    Hirunika keep out of S/L politics, its a dirty game. You are too beautiful to be involved in this garbage.

    ABC Friday, 03 January 2014 08:21 AM

    Politics makes strong bedfellows. She might contest in UPFA ticket under the guidance of Duminda Silva!!

    ANTON Friday, 03 January 2014 07:51 AM

    IF SHE COMES, THE ONLY OPPOSITION CANDIDATE SUITBLE TO CONTEST FOR THIS POSITION IS NADEESHA HEMAMAALEE.
