    This is quite evident that under yahapalana, they can express practically any views but when Rajapaksa was ruling they would have got lost in white vans

    This should have been their mode of transport from Day 1. Now these con men who think the Sri Lankan masses are fooled by this stunt, can put down their fat bellies.

    Reality is dawning! Austerity is a key word for Sri Lanka. Parliamentarians are 'peoples leaders',"Come down from Ivory Towers and Luxury vehicles. PEOPLE MUST DEMAND- they all stay at 'Madiwela MP's complex' built for them and cycle to Parliament. Sell/or export the free Luxury vehicles for which PEOPLE paid $.60,000 x 225. Invest in Public Transport, Electric Buses and Trains, improve railway, shelve Expressways. All Politicians love to build expressways. Fin Min or JVP please educate the people on the saving. That's the ECONOMIC REVOLUTION people will want.
