  5. I thought Ranawaka has some principles! But now he is a useless bugger who needs the power by hook or crook!

  6. This is not to prevent corruption, To gain power using Rajapaksa as an excuse. Why only Rajapkasa’s corruption is important? Why not investigate about others. Many people went to FCID to complain about Sajth Premadasa and others but they were threatened and chased away by FCID. This is the reality of FCID, Unless Rajapaksa is connected no inquiry.
