UNP CAMPAIGNING FOR NEW MEMBERS IN  A THREE WHEELER  ( TUK TUK) !

Do you know how three wheelers came to Sri Lanka and when ? My driver who is an ardent UNP supported who was working closely with Siri Kotha tells  me that first Three Wheeler ( Tuk Tuk ) was brought to Sri Lank by UNP paid by Sri Kotha ( party office of UNP)

I vehemently protest against the party leader and  the youth leader of the party travelling in this undesirable mode of transport, thus promoting tuk tuk  more and more .

I wonder whether party will take steps to further promote membership drive by  giving a tuk tuk as an  incentive like many companies promote their products by offering rice cookers ,hair dryers etc !!

I am one of the ardent supporter of anti-tuk tuk campaign  and a supporter Yahaplanaya and UNP ,I always advocate the idea of stopping the  importing of three wheelers to this country .One of the main reason is that Tuk Tuks is the main mode of transporting  and  muling of drugs in Sri Lanka and taking away our young productive  labour force .They are also a menace in the streets as most of the traffic violations are done by Tuk Tuks

One of the ideas for politicians and Governor of Central Banks should promote  is to prohibit further importation of three wheelers to Sri Lanka if they intend to increase national productivity by making more and more young people are available  to work in productive areas.

Surely reduction of three wheelers in Sri Lankan roads will reduce fuel consumption as we will have less traffic jams and also emission of C02 .

Yesterday I saw another article where our president locked up some of his ministers in the Matara newly opened office of the agency which monitors illegal ( legal as well)  liquor trade .

Similarly ,Prime Minster should have travelled  in a bullock cart to promote the membership drive and get ministers to pull the cart in turns instead of bulls .( parden me for this proposal not all ministers can be called Bulls other than may be called some of them as stud bulls !)

God save Sri Lanka from Tuk Tuk’s

    Sarath, our Tuk Tuks are Indian made, not like in other Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia and other Indo-China countries.

    There is a group of young engineers and entrepreneurs all Sinhalese trying to develop and market a locally made electric Tuk Tuk. Last time I met them about a year ago they were having the same problems you have with the authorities.

    I have no problem with Tuks except that they come from the Indian Union and imported by Indian colonial parasites.

    I apologize for the above. Baja is assembled by David Peris Group which is not run by Indian colonial parasites. But still most of the parts are imported from India.

    If I remember correct early Bajajs were imported by Hepthullsa or some one like that who were Indian colonial parasites.
