    See that a thug and disgrace to the country, is investigated and give due punishment.
    No decent leader will want a someone in his government with such a low caliber and thuggish ways to be a part of his administration.

    Better react fast and give justice to people of Kelaniya without sweeping it under the carpet

    Rupavahini incidence, MTv camera Snatching Incidence, Man tied to the tree, Surreptio9usly taking drug addicts to the air port and flown out of the country, Breaking parapet wall taking the law into his own hands........... the list is endless. Nothing will come out of this. It is waste of time and public money. Those days we use to say country has gone to dogs. It may hurt a few but facts are stubborn.
