  1. What about the human rights of the people using public roads? the police was doing their duty and all of a sudden some slum dogs claiming to be uni students come and block the road, and you expect the police to say “enna puthe me cake kalla kaala anith road ekath block karanna!”? imagine- the hospitals are IN THAT ROUTE, WHAT ABOUT EMERGENCY SERVICES! WILL THE STUDENTS TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IF AN AMBULANCE- IT IS THE POLICE WHO IS REPONSIBLE. So this is what I am saying- some sinhalayaas are still modayaas!
