    This is no means acceptable. Baling out has been made a joke by today authorities.

    Either he to be convicted with higher jail sessions or leave him.

    Just deceiving people to the end can face consequences in the days to come. I am fed up lanken present day verdicts.. Those who are healthy thinkers- obsrevers.. are well aware of the fact… how abusive the man has been.This man does respect anyone. IRC by all means. Can be the twin brother of that foul mouth Mahindannanda.

    Atleast gods should punish the kind of fraudsters not allowing them to be free from their charges. Then only this culture woudl ever change for the betterment of people.

        I really dont think anyone would be able to get on with the kind of guys. … alone his stealthy smirks …are provocative. This bugger belongs not even to butchery. But stupid folks have voted him to the parliament. Either people are insane – or they have not the least knowledge about the represenatative. Not even virus vehicling mosquitoes are that that parasitic as these men.

        This is no means buddhist dominated world. it is a hell.
