  1. I’m surprised that Cabraal not try to jumped the fence to UNP its only early days. UNP was his first home as I recall. Ah! its only another conga line of investigation so nothing will come of it just the volume turned up for general masses can hear the music bit louder so to keep them happy.

  2. Good move first ask what kind of fraud happened in central bank,then ask sashi weerawansa how she got the diplomatic passport then gammanpila the racist don’t know how to speak when in public or in debate.
