According to Ramanayake, the cost for the first day of the walk on July 28 alone was a staggering Rs. 18 million. “I have proof that they spent Rs. 18 million on the first day,” Ramanayake told a news conference in Colombo.

He accused the joint opposition of trying to split the SLFP in their effort to safeguard their corrupt practices. He also called on the media to question these MPs about their corrupt practices.

The Pada Yathra which concluded yesterday evening in Colombo at the Lipton Circus, resulted in severe traffic congestion in and around Colombo severely inconveniencing the public. According to eye witness accounts, the protestors who took part in the Pada Yathra from Peradeniya, was seen thronging liquor stores to purchase liquor, whenever the protest march passed an outlet selling alcohol.

Various government ministers accused the joint opposition of buying the participants who took part in the protest march a bottle of arrack and a lunch packet.

    Sorry mate.. This stunt wouldn’t work..Poojithya beat you to it…

      This guy was seen a not be super intelligent, but as a sincere one and liked by the crowed. “Pandiyoodai Chentha Kandum……”(calf of the pig learn from the mother what to eat). Now he has become the “Thirukkai Vaal” (Stingray tail) of the Yahapalanaya boss, Mr. Batalanada. Isn’t he?

      The F word CID is the Chitanta part in the Yahapalanaya Goverment. These henchmen, unlike the Brother Prince “White van Navy Seals”, are legitimized by the C C C, the criminals club of Ceylon, ..Rathika, Wijeyadasa, Batalanda, Ariyadasa….

      It is not something new! What is point in talking about it. Leave that aside man! BTW, how was the Biriyani this time? Spoiled or delivered in time,fresh? Anybody twisted the caps of any foreign bottle or it was the same old illegal local? You would like the local, I guess. I doubt 18 million is enough to Younger Brother Prince to deliver any foreign bottles. He might have negotiated the next bunglow price for the next bungalow before the hat collection started to for procession arrack; isn’t he? Then there would not be any balance left for the Johnny Walker. Did you also dance the Kandyan Kooththu?

      Lot of fun for the summer holidays. Enjoy it. Wish all the best Sumane!

        Good one mate..

        Are you with the Dalits now !!!!!

        Can’t wait to see the “development” which Bodhi Sira promised the Dalits, after Batalnda & Poojithaya tried their best to stop the Padha yatra reaching the Megapolis,

        Which is the Future Federal state of Elite, Anglican and the Absentee Vellala Landlords..

        Bodhi Sira said his soon to be released Plan will develop the Mavawansa land in the next 3 years, as no one has ever done before.

        ( If anyone done that he wouldn’t have to do it anyway ) ..
        .
        Batalanada at the same time told the Indonesians who cared to listen, that King Parakumba built a Kingdom even in Bengalle Bokka.( Bay )’

        I thought King Parakumba was a Sinhala Buddhist…

        A bit confusing even for me..

        How about you mate..

    INTELLIGENCE REPORT SHOWS THAT THE PADA YATRA WAS ENTIRELY FUNDED BY DARANA MEDIA, HIROO MEDIA, AXCESS GROUP SOOMAL. ETC. EACH PARTICIPANT WAS PAID 10,000 RUPEES FOR A FIVE DAY PACKAGE INCLUDING ARRACK. LUNCH PACKET ETC.

    Ranja, Arjun Mahendra has financed JO lu. And, Ranja, how about a similar complaint to FCID with regard to the secret money deals which had taken place in Singapore, for the benefit of UNP during the last elections, as revealed by Rajiv Wijesinha and Arjun Mahendran himself?

    One of the dumbest parliamentarians in Sri Lanka. This guy has so many defamation cases against him. He likes to run his mouth without any evidence. He is really an actor.

      I salute Ranjan for his tireless campaign to expose the evils of the Rajapaksa gang. A courageous man who did not fear Rajapaksa’s hit squads or Gota’s white vans when the criminal gang ruled the country.

      Keep up the good work Ranjan. The intelligent people are with you.

        Oh com’on, this is getting old. How many opposition MPs were killed by white vans? There were many UNP MPs appeared on TV stations like Sirasa to lambast government. Ranjan came to prominence later.

    Not only the criminal politicians like the Rajapaksas, In Sri Lanka Thugs and Gangsters and all the wrong criminal types get voted in by intimidating people, buying votes for money/ arrack. And some of them openly say it. Who is to blame! People should stand up to political intimidation take their bribe money but still vote for who you think can make a better Sri Lanka and not these criminals. Enough is enough take this country away from these criminals and place it in the hands of responsible well educated politicians.

    Is this UNP Ranjan married?

    With his clean as a whistle living , how can he look after a missus and even a couple of kids?.

    How can he send his daughter to England and get a Law Degree from London, because they don’t come cheap,

    He even refused that instant lottery ticket with a guaranteed prize of around USD 280,thou.. which would have nicely covered the tuition fees and accommodation as well.

    May be after all Ranjan is a Dalit who joined the UNP to bring it down from inside.
