    SLPP goons back at their familiar habits. Few more hours their dreams will be gone.

    This is not a good behavior. But my question is why these people are transporting from Puttlam to Manar on election day?

    Maco, what is your action on this. Will you come out and tell the police to shoot them at sight on the head.

    They first vote in Puthlum and then got to Vauniya for their second vote... This should stop

    The so-called incumbent government's plan of robbing votes by Impersonation failed. Good to hear. People are aware of the rogues playing behind.
