TNA MP, M.A. Sumanthiran told the Daily Mirror that these roadblocks existed earlier as well and the people in the north were familiar with roadblocks and that it won't hinder them casting their vote today.

"SDIG Seneviratne who arrived in the North last morning has instructed the army to remove all the roadblocks to enable the people to reach their polling stations without any obstacle. Although the army refused earlier, they had to abide by the EC's directives. There is no issue in the north now. Even despite roadblocks, the people will cast their vote today in numbers," Sumanthiran told the Daily Mirror.

Our attempts to contact Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya failed.

    How can Police give orders to the Army? This is a Joke.

    This is how army big shots charged with war crimes behave even refusing orders from the President, commander in chief.

    The army should be strictly confined to their barracks. It's the police who are responsible during civil administration to maintain law and order.

    This guy wants a separate state. We are all Sri Lankas not Indians. These people must be made to feel proud of there country. No one wants to see an LTTE in sheep's clothing.

    People of the north are also used to post war era corruption by TNA parliamentarians. They are also disgusted on how these MP s remained in hiding during war times shunning people. Let's see.
