    [UPFA General Secretary Minister Susil Premajayantha said yesterday that attempts by certain political groups to fan the flames of ethnic tension for cheap political gain cannot be condoned.]

    Absolutely right. Don`t go any further to look for these groups. They are within your fold - the Urumaya chaps, stupid.

    Whatever strategy by anyone will have to counter the UPFA/TMVP `guns and threats` strategy which seems unlikely to be countered by anyone to immerge victorious at the elections.

    No one except the UPFA/TMVP alliance will immerge as the victors but thereafter we all will be entertained to the Chief Minister drama/ tug`o`war which Pillayan and Hisbullah are both claiming unconditionally and in no uncertain terms!
