  1. Another eyewash by Sirisena and Ranil . Let them be aware that there is someone watching us. The cries of those affected will reflect in some way or another. The Tamil people are crying for the last 7 years and that will be heard.

  2. This is one of the ways to trap the good governance leaders to make sure that they dance according to the West. Professional fashion designer will find out soon that he is in a wrong field :~))))

    The Americans, Canadians, Aussies and Kiwis don’t even live in their country, but good preachers of democracy and human rights. This shows how good they are in fooling others.

    The missing list will be exaggerated by Tamils, but the West loves it. Because more pressure on Sinhalese to dance according to the West. The fashion designer doesn’t have guts to ask Australia to reveal the reason for deleting my citizenship, but keen to find a solution for a fake missing list. Smart Lankans know what is coming…
