    The people love to see big convoys with Sri Lankan military boys shouting at them. It turns them on.

    Jaya Thursday, 29 April 2021 11:10 AM

    They protest for everything.The road was closed for the Chinese Defence Minister and not for a local politician.Now roads are not closed even for the President.

    Englishman Thursday, 29 April 2021 11:37 AM

    Come on! Yes there is inconvenience but let’s not ignore security!!!

    N.Saluwadana Thursday, 29 April 2021 11:51 AM

    Do not take this as a joke or nonsense. There is a continuous tension growing in the people. Usually a volcano emits smoke before it erupts. The Govt. has to start implementing law in common to everybody without anomalies and exceptions. Otherwise a sudden revolt of the people will be unavoidable.

    Danthe Thursday, 29 April 2021 12:29 PM

    Respect!

    Praba Friday, 30 April 2021 06:46 AM

    Its a wrong thing to do. But when top people take things to their hands even make use of Law
