    this comment is irrelevant to the above topic. just needed a space to write this.
    today 21st may 2013 marks a protest day against the current regime. this definitely is not a plot against this corrupt regime to bring it down, by opposition or by ‘forces’ as the govt puts it, but an outburst of frustration by people in this country, against a regime which is corrupt to the hilt and incompetent. this is not only about a hike in electricity chargers but a protest to show the government the struggle people undergo in this country just to ‘exist’. of course the beginning of the end of mahinda’s regime will come the day after the npc elections, when ltte sympathysers will hold reigns and lay the foundation for separatism. hard fought war just nullifies with the establishment of npc. if the election is fair, which is not the case with this corrupt regime, ltte proxies will be in power. this government can manipulate the voting elsewhere but I doubt they will do it in np.
    bbs now must enter politics and that is the only solution left to agitate the masses as elections are a farce in sri lanka. a peoples movement is the only answer to topple this corrupt regime, with the help of armed forces and today people must show their strength. will they unite is the big question?

    this is not a day for ‘kumanthranayak’ but a day of protest by the suffering masses in heledeepa, against the most corrupt regime in the history of heladeepa.

    Dear Sunil, Today, 22nd 10.04 ,I am sure you now saw the peoples response to the so called incompetant and unjust regime. Try and use your head to understand a simple and basic reality in this country of ours today. Who will succeed this government? are they capable of better management? do they have proven ability? if so why are they not in power?
    The JVP today a (nananthara)party that have lost their way are trying to make their presence felt,but in trying to do so they are making themselves the laughing stock of the world.
    After each and every election they lost, they claim victory and say it is the masses that who really lost and not them. Who is trying to fool whom?
    Last week, Lal kantha, I saw, emphasised the urgent need to send this government packing home.
    I just would appreciate he enlighten me and many others who are ignorant of their ways,how they intend to do this. If they think they can do it with Arab springs of various origins,they are not only decieving us but them selves. Before they ask us to cut our noses because the face doesn’t look good, they must tell us how our face wil look like after we cut the nose on their behest.

    Lankaweb moderator for some reason refused to publish my relevant comment to this article
    But, allowed an irrelevant comment(s).
    Be that as it may, Sunil appears to call for a peoples movement for a regime change with the help of the armed forces.
    Whose armed forces were you thinking of?
