    A better man than Ranjan. At least he will not record telephone conversations.

    SJB accepted the appointment of Mr Mannaperuma sworn in as MP. Otherwise they would have rejected and not accepted the seat in parliament for Mr AM. Then why they protest over securing Ranja's parliament seat?. They show cause to the public by spending millions of public money in the parliament.

    Poor Ranjan first betrayed by his lawyer now by his party.

    Cisco is an intelligent person who doesn't know the only viable option left. Obviously, one of 6.9 M.

    Did SJB wearing black bands holding placards, launch their protest campaign against Mannaperuma becoming a MP? It appeared so!
