  1. Ranil is part of the Rajapaksas club. Sajith should have taken the Prime Minister position without any condition. Things would be more transparent under Sajith than Ranil Wickremesinghe. It is not too late to remove Rani Wickremesinghe. The protesters should intensify their demand as the situation deteriorate in Sri Lanka.

  2. What a surprise :—)))

    He will be catching up with Basil Rajapaksa to talk about the great legal system in Sri Lanka. They both are real patriotics of mother Lanka.
