    Would it not be better if the operation was to clean up the political Field from parasites, opportunists, wheeler dealers and prostitutes.

    You can sell the Trincomalee petrol tankers to India, Weerawila to US Voice of tigers, and also you can sell the Hambantota Harbour to China to buy weapons and kill your own Sri Lankan people. You are worried about cleaning the colombo area. Its funny. Really funny.

    Cleaning Colombo Area is to build a Luxury bunker for your self eh....Come on give your poor community a chance. Those people only elect you. This is how you pay back. You won`t give a toss to anyone who helped you to win the election or you don`t even care about how about you come to power.

    It is a good and bad move. the biggest question is how these poor payment vendors are going to make a living???

    The governement responsibility is for all segments of the people. that includes payment vendors too. they are not criminals. they are trying to make their living with whatever the available means. So government should ensure wives & children of these payment vendors will not starve and they will not fall into criminal activity once they lose the livelihood.

    [Payments are for walkers not for hawkers. Well done MR]

    `Payments`(through big contracts and deals) are for MR and co. Pavements are for walkers and hawkers.
