I find many tamil speaking Sri Lankans of dubious repute sitting on the higher benches, Do these guys have any capability of dispensing justice to Sinhala Buddhist community? Their leader was sunk in the sea not many moons ago and that is where these guys belong too. There are many thambiyas too on the bench. Time to overhaul top to down.
