    Don’t worry Lorenzo MR will be there at the correct time. Why you guys are scared of him or his name.Nobody can stop the river now it’s bigger than Mahweli. Just be cool and watch.

    Liar is a liar always. Sira’s lies won’t stop here and it will go on for ever because he was an old Grama Sevaka and he used to tell lies those days and still he has that habit. S.L.F.P er’s should not come to the parliament with clothes on they must come naked because I have never seen such low class unpredictable politicians in my life who are so greedy for power & wealth. They will sell their Mother’s even to keep their positions. They are worst than ordinary poor people in this country. How can they support the man who acted against the party and it’s leader Mahinda Rajapksa? How can they have a UNP backed President as their head of the party? These lunatics don’t care about anything even the country or it’s people but their own-self. We have to get rid of these liars as quickly as possible so join us.
