    Finally, AG got some courage to arrest some wrongdoers, when they are going to arrest Ranil and put him in jail too? Let all the VVIPs roll in for the colossal crimes that they have committed against the nation.

    What is Ranil who pretends as he the strategies but in actual fact he doesn't have any brain but show that he knows every thing and finally he got caught for ACTING. All the Singhalese pesents believe him.

    How about orders to have Sajith and his entire team too arrested so that your boss can sail through the election???

    At last we are catching the big fish. Mahendran is a very big fish but there is a bigger one swimming around.

    What about the thieves between 2002 and 2015. They also cheated on public money or is this an election gimmick to show the public that you are doing what you promissed.
