    The SLFP, from the inception have pulled down Sri Lanka in many ways and the JVP propped up the SLFP to come to power.

    In the 1960`S and early 1970`S,JVP supported the SLFP in many ways including violence and riots, to bring down democratically elected governments. Subsequently JVP propped up the Autocrat led SLFP into power, again and again.

    JVP burnt the CTB Buses and Electrical Transformers that served the average people, not the rich. Didn`t they loot gold from National Banks and siphoned out ill-gotten money to buy real estate in UK for some JVP leaders and their families ?.

    Were they not ware that essential food and prescription drugs, are heavily taxed in a so-called Socialist Country. JVP leaders are opportunists who have misled many ill-informed young people to rebel against regime that they propped up.

    JVP has done this again and again ..........

    Poster Campaigns and posters of any kind should be legally banned because posters are usually pasted on walls and pillars own by the State or privately.

    1. Posters of any kind, including funeral blessings, must be displaced only on Notice Boards erected for such purposes.

    2. Posters should carry the names of the publisher and printers.

    Violators should be prosecuted within the law to recover the cost of removing such posters and the repairs to properties.

    3. Law should be common to all political parties,trade unions and Funeral Directors too who are defacing State and Private properties.

    Most political parties, particularly the SLFP, have damaged Sri Lanka, in many ways. Some have done the most.

    1. In the 1950 s, SWRD who was the son of Aristocrat Solomon Dias Bandaranayake, came to power following his Oxford education. He instigated communal riots with his short sighted Sinhala Only concept. We are still struggling

    2. He introduced Socialism that encouraged most citizens to believe that a person can live from Cradle to Grave , practically Free . Free hospital care, subsidised food including milk for the infants, Free education all the way to University and beyond etc. Today even the developed and wealthy countries are struggling to achieve such free facilities.

    3. They forced industrialization without any feasibility study. One of the good examples is the Steel Corporation. A heavy industry, without any local input such as iron ore, was established in a rural area even without a railway track. The corp. eventually became a place to provide employment to political supporters and their families who eventually looted the place.

    4. SLFP dragged Buddhist Clergy to active day to day politics, thereby damaging the respect that the Clergy had earlier.

    5. In the 1970`s when the country was struggling for foreign exchange to import essential food items, their children were educated in foreign lands such as UK, France etc. How did they find money? Did any of these leaders work in those countries ?.

    6. Eventually those Foreign Educated children came to lead the country again. They in turn not only ended up living luxury lives, also they have invested heavily in foreign lands. Did any of them earn a living by way of employment? No, the aristocrats are born only to govern and exploit the poor just like the colonials did.

    7. Now the other Aristocratic family from the south has taken over from bandaranayakes. Government has become a Family Business

    Foregoing is a brief summary of the SLFP and its Achievements . It is up to the readers to find out who has done a service to the country.

    I believe the only exceptions are D.S. Senanayake and Premadasa ????. DSS did not stir up racism yet he did it in a subtle way by developing agriculture and introducing sustainable and profitable industries like Cement etc thereby penetrating into minority areas.

    Premadasa was perhaps the only leader who rose from the average working Class and he knew the true culture of the SL population.

    SLFP did use the JVP whenever they wanted and dropped them once the aristocrats achieved their objectives. Again the JVP is trying their old tricks. They should have taken action when the GOSL imposed heavy taxes on essential food items and prescription drugs. JVP and their misled followers simply litter the streets with their posters.

    First solve the `Gedera Jaramare` before think of `Ratee Jaramara`
