    The World can now see that it is to achieve this dynastic power

    emerged claiming to be saviours of Sri Lanka.The 2/3 majority
    which sustains this power does not reflect the will of the people.
    Violations of Human Rights and Crimes against Humanity continue.
    Democracy is being demolished under the juggernaut power of this
    evil force. Sri Lanka is doomed!

    Whilst the mafia family and the goons are enjoying their lives and fattening their dynasty, the poor are badagini and exploited, whilst the Lamborginies are seen with the high and mighty, this is day light robbery of the public funds to throw tamashas. The government hospitals are doling out sub-standard drugs, prices of essential day to day goods are beyond the reach of the poor man, whilst the dynasty swallows huge sums of the public money taking control of 90% of the economy funds, where O where will this country head to, maybe into the beira lake, with the mafia families drowning in their own glory and power into the hell of damnation.
