    It was your instruction Sajith Premadasa!!

    You have cleared the ancient treasures from Yala and now come to Anuradapura.

    Luckily the news got out.

    We know very well that these two guys will get the job back with a big pay out.

    A senior UNP politician and presidential hopeful is said to be behind this. He has changed his religion to an Evangelical faith which ridicules other faiths and actively encourages the destruction of what is inconsistent with it without any fear. Locals fear touching these places for the fear of curses said to protect them.
