    Leadership was just a stone throw away!

    u dont want to win the UNP. u need only your personal win. normal UNPers gave up everithing.

    jeeva Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:19 PM

    you are the real leader ranil....

    Tharaka Chanaka Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:26 PM

    clearly the stone missed its target

    Rahmathullah Tuesday, 20 December 2011 12:30 PM

    why don't you exit honorably? Your win in the leadership election will not pave the way for win in the General Election or Presidential Election. Now you have realized that you have lost support in the grass root level.

    We must respect the result

    Let the first man / women who has not sinned (deceived the voter after getting in to Parliament) throw the first Stone)

    We will put it on the Ballot Paper next time..

    Handipora Tuesday, 20 December 2011 01:00 PM

    Is this the act of grass root level people. You are sadly mistaken. This is as a result of violence and hatred instigated by the so called aspirants to leadership on some people. They are not grass root people. They are thugs, and some educated hooligants.Dont dsparage the grass roots.

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Tuesday, 20 December 2011 08:58 PM

    Leading from behind!

    saman Wednesday, 21 December 2011 02:04 AM

    stupid politics
