Only Sinhalese Buddhist votes are required to govern Nation.
Yo you racist skunk… you stink! You got to be an undercover LTTE agent – still licking his b*lls from Nanthikadaal fireworks long ago! Your clearly subversive statement here, especially when the country has to come together to combat COVID-19, appears to be designed to cause disharmony between SL’ different ethnic communities and so you deserve punishment by the SL authorities and I say the punishment should be to remove your wounded/infected b*lls permanently by the STF! LMAO!
I do not agree with Ms Prema Fdo, Tll me how Yaha Palanaya came to power? Didn’t TNA voted for UNP+ MY3 along with Muslim congress. In case Sinhala Buddhist votes get splittet UNP can win with the support of Muslims and Tamils (and Christians). that is why during the last Präsidentiell elections UNP put forward Mahesh Senanayake and Rohan Pallewatte Gamarala.
“TNA is concerned about the threat to the people”- what about LTTE and their threat to people, including the child soldiers of your own community Mr Sumanthiran!
Where was your co-operation to stop THAT spread?
You are a traitor to Sri Lanka!
Therefore, why should we take any notice of your comments and opinions?
