Politics is ruining our country.

At North :
They are not looking after their own people well, their own people still in so called temporary (which has now become almost permanent) shelters; but asking for more powers (for their own goodwill)

At East : They want more power (since North is requesting the same)

At Other parts : They are fighting on ‘which May day rally to visit’.

Seriously, there are more ‘important things’ than all this crap !!

Dear Politicians,

We are so unfortunate to be ‘lead’ by such unworthy ‘leaders’ like you all; most of the time after independence (except for few handful respectable persons).

If we had good ‘politicians’ who put ‘country forward’ then ‘their own good will’ like Singapore; we would have been such a strong Nation.

We really hate you and blame ourselves for voting for you (out of our foolishness).

Thank you for ruining this beautiful country!

We got rid of MR as we wanted a new political culture after Jan 8 2105. But even after 1 May 2016 it hasn’t still come! You appointed the SLFP man as the Hiriyala organizer, though he attacked physically the “Aluth Parapura”, who valiantly fought for your success a the elections. What a shame! That made me take another new decision. I do not want MR back.Neither doI want you ! The last resort is Ranil as the JVP, though clean, has no chance of coming in to power given their past credentials.
