    Need to get rid of the “Daddy” politicians. we need new legislators to change the systems of law and governance built for good and bad times witout being favourable to an individual in power but those who are common in mass.

    JVP is the most disgraceful political party in Sri Lanka & naturally their acts are equally despicable. Likewise the UNP, JVP is itching to create a civil commotion & believes they should strike while the iron is hot!! Its a pity that Sirimavo & Premadasa could not eradicate the present JVP scum fully, like MR did to the LTTE.
