  1. ARJUNA -“originally proposed UPFA nominations list for Gampaha and the one produced by Prema Layantha, and this was one of the reasons he decided to join the United National Front – OK fine Kool !

    Now could Captain Kool tell us what happened to him at the hands of CBK & why CBK suddenly dashed out of SL ? Also at the said material time of the fracas who was in the company of Mr. Kool for CBK to loose her temper & turn violent?

    • Of course this guy Arjuna will not tell us with whom he was having a game of bed cricket, when caught by CBK. We request Dickie Bird to give us the juicy report.

  2. Don;t worry about these deal makers, you go ahead,you will stand as a man of the people. Recently we have heard about story of ‘bandagarike wife’ who managed school entrances. These guys should be eliminated from the politics of the country.
