Gamman-pilla of JHU fame is a man possessed these days.
Having pitted himself against the heavyweights of the
ruling clan, he sure knows that victory does not come
easy. The man who has been shouting himself hoarse about
clean and green politics has now put up cutouts and
banners in every nook and corner but that's not all.
Shame on this old boy, he has even put up his cutout at
his alma mater, the school named after the Father of our
Nation. Desperation sure shows!
TC Raja of the blue camp was in for a rude shock when
his mater was threatened at gunpoint that if the son
were to continue his political sojourn, life would take
a sour turn. The khaki types have owned up that they
took off the cutouts outside his mother's abode and
guess with whose assistance, the cadres of the Eee Pee
Dee Pee. But mum's the word as to who showed the poor
lady a gun. In this isle, there is space only for
terrorists in politicians' garb and not others, poor
Raja was heard lamenting. Sob sob!
culture of abductions and extortions is sure not a thing
of the past, and very much the political practice of the
ruling types. Victims are not necessarily those of Tamil
origin as often is the case, but supporters of no lesser
person than the Petroleum boss the Fuzzy one.
Fuzzy's sin was his zealous campaign to ensure his son's
victory come April 25 that had upset some Colombo
Central Es El Ef Pee ruffian types. So gangsters
forcibly took away two dozens of Fuzzy supporters and
forced them to paste some posters of a rival candidate.
Talk about muscle flexing and strong-arm tactics,
government style, ah?!
secretary who is general for the Es El Ef Pee, the man
named after kindness itself is a thoroughly embarrassed
man these days. With escalating intra party rivalry, the
recent doings of Colombo contestants added a blush of
shame to poor Siri's square face and prompted him to
say, "good grief, shame shame, to think this is the
party founded by one of the most peaceful politicians
ever known." Well-said boy well said!
Companions on a journey
Ra-kneel, the leader of the opposing team is having a
bit of a breather, now that the rebellious groups have
momentarily quietened down. Throwing a gauntlet at the
Prez, Ra-kneel was recently heard to say that if he
sinned by talking peace, that too with the covert and
overt blessings of many in the ruling party at present,
he won't go to jail alone. "Then send them all with me,
if I am suspect so are they," he was heard saying, a
finger firmly pointed at Gee El and Mee-linda in the
government front rows.
