    This guy knows nothing. I hope he has read the gazette notification. The SJB does not have a legal expert as a politician.

    They have Harsha de silva. But he is acting like karl marx these days.

    This task needs to handled by Ajith P. Perera and not this joker. I hope the SJB is working with Ajith on this issue.

    The UNP has made 2 petitions and has presented it to court while you guys were day dreaming. SJB do not have a visionary leaders and they are only followers. Only making daily statements while the horse has bolted.

    Only decent guy in SJB

    Good, but hope you would fund the referendum?
