  1. I think RW is a man of deeds and not only of words. So, walk the talk RW, and show everyone that u mean business. As for Anura achieving the result in 6 months, it should not concern you, because you are not wanted in the first place, and then you are not answerable to the success or failure of Anura. If Anura will fail, then it vindicates you. Further, you yourself are a failure and it does not matter whether another failed person join your club of failed politicians. Already there is the company of GR, MR and every one in the parliament. Welcome to the club. We are paying for the sin of killing innocent 260 elders and we are still singing the exploits of criminals.

  2. Nobody can change the current situation in 6 months. It will take years, if not centuries. For me you all are monkeys, you are trained to perform according to the western powers, so the west can continue to dominate the world.

  3. Yes whole government should resign and put the SJB in the hot seat and allow them to make a fool of themselves and expose that they have no plans on how to get us out of this crisis.

    When they realize that they will not get any international help as long as they keep criminals, thugs and those running money laundering and other criminal operations in the party.

    They have members who’s family exploited the citizenry selling overpriced Covid19 test kits and vaccinations.

    They have criminal connections to Nirupama Rajapaksa & Thirukkumaran Nadesan.

    Until the SJB gives the international community an assurance to prosecute all criminals no international help will come.
