    JVP must exist. Otherwise our politics will be a family business like now.

    The leader of JVP was paid by India to talking against it so that India can keep the Sri Lankan Govt at bay all the time.

    Wake Mr. Amerasinghe and become a true Sri Lanka FIRST !!!

    This man is now talking aabout the democracy while his political masters have laid the foundation to destroy the democracy in our country, way back in 1971. Used Guns and bullets instead of ballet.

    This man is talking rubbish.

    JVP is always correct, but they are poor in taking decision in right time, at right decisions. But unluckily Sri lankans doesn't understand how important of JVP.

    It is painful to watch him dabble in English. But for his information, for his little brain, Sirimavo was the world's first woman PM but she was stripped of her civic rights. Whether it is a man or a woman, if there is a reason to be impeached, it must be done. Whether the reasons are credible is what he should be discussing!

    What he says is correct. JVP needs make aware of their party members and most specially general public on JVP's vision and mission and their future activities that benefits to country.

    I think your brain is affected with meningitis or something

    Though I am not a supporter of Marxist policies, I will give credit for the JVP to fulfilling the need to open the eyes of people to,read between the lines & certainly maintaining political party & voicing its stance consistently.Very unlike Ranil who i,m sorry to say betrayed a great county !

    whatever your party says or does, we dont like you, whether you are crrect (of course we know that you are crrect) we dont like you. we dont vote you because we are Sri Lankans.

    he will never give any direct answers to any he a leader

    Rubert Vanderkoon,

    Your thinking is not correct. English is not the all. It is just a language. He described the present state of the country very correctly. ......

    Prisons must be taken away from the city or suburb to a far away place.
