  1. Only people who have no connection to People in Power should be punished for corruption and bribery and that too for small amounts below say Rs.100,000/=. Any amount above like millions and billions should be treated as normal and ordinary transactions.

  2. We want address the issues of corruptions of the politicians, political parties and other officials misused Tax Payers Money.
    Corruption is cancer of Democratic society , that has been developed since 1977 under the UNP-JRJ.
    The Corruptions of all walk of life has been enrich and come into the wider range of that every nook and corner of society last 40 years .
    Not a single leading political parties address this issue by serious efforts.

    The war footing politics in 30 years has covered up corruptions by leading political parties has been involved . They power of politics of elected members of in power of state has by passed the corruption allegation.

    No that Bribery Commission, Ministry of Justice ,
    Dep. of Attorney General , Courts of Law and other law enforcement authority of that CID. FCID and other outfits of Government has intentionally ignored or that supressed allegation against Members of Parliaments and high Officials. Therefor power corrupted Democracy and voters and their institutions last 45 years..

    Result of that People become voiceless against Political corruption led by who are in Govt. Powers.

    We are not going support any party, that who has been committed crime of corruption against People’s money. There was corruptions last regime.That is fact .
    Ongoing Govt. has exceed that .

    But current ruling Parties alliances led UNP-Ranil W.. is the key person that who is responsibility and accountability of for Example Central Bank Bond scandal involved by ex- Governor of Arjuna Mahandara.
    No rightful action has been taken by UNP-Ranil Govt. until now! Why not that President MS?

    If any Govt. Organization is working against Interest of People must be dissolved, in case such organization are working for the interest of the general public that should be there.

    That is democracy of governance never supressed rightful organization..

    The Crux of matter is any ruling party must address the issues of corruption without political affiliations.

    We are for the clean governances by elected members which followed by democracy norms.

    • Well said. Norms of democracy are only words used in Election platforms. .Once in power the norms fly away. Good example is the secrecy behind TB Issue and Sri Lankan Airlines Leasing Deal.
