    Well done MR! Kick these guys and that idiot Mervin Silva our of your sight.please bring law and order to the country that would encourage inward investments and let the media be critical of you which is the true sign of our free democracy and any defamation of character should be dealt by the independent courts not by the likes of Mervin.Thats the way to run a country.

    He will not kick any of them out knowing that sooner they leave go and sit on the opposite.

    More concern about his power rather than the country!

    I support 13 Amendment. We have to let Tamils to govern if they want to and see how they manage their provinces without corruption, how they find funds for development, how they manage state / province budget. Until to date all they did was complain, complain, now will have chance to do it real. Good luck.

    Good on you MR.

    Champika just support MR. You will have lot of work ahead in MR government, don`t make foolish decisions and follow stupid JVP.

    Wimal, don`t try to oppose MR. Be with him in this time. Both of you were pillars of MR`s success so far. Why have issues now.

    Military solution alone won t work. We cant hide between the unitary word and act like blindfolded. Power devolution is one of step forward to bring peace and harmony.

    Like W.Dahanayake,kick everyone out and run a one man show?

    I am not a supporter of JHU but personally I feel if 13 ammendment fully implemented it will be a base to a speratism in future.

    The main areas that should be in question.

    1. Police powers- Tamils should be integrated to Army Navy Airforce and Police but should not be seperated regionaly.

    2. Land powers- Every one should have a right to buy and live in Sri Lanka irrespective their race. And Central government should have the rights to use the land for the interst of the country.

    For example If the central government wants to start the Coal plant to feed the national grid in Trinco it should have the right to do it. But according to the 13th ammendment if the NE `government` did not approve it as it will have a public objections in the area for political reasons Central government will not be able to do it.

    3. Resources - The whole country should bennifited from its natural natural resources such as Oil but there will be issues when it comes to such resources as Sri Lanka is not a big country like India,Canada or US. Also it should be remembered that NE provinces posses almost 2/3 of the sea resources.

    No power should be given based on Race. If there is such powers were given to Sri Lankan Tamils which comprise of 12% of the population what will happen if the same was requested by Muslims who are alomost about 10% of the population ?

    What is actually needed is power sharing not power devolution and Administrative powers should be given to each province to fascilitate the public. This should be not to satisfy anyones political goals or satisfy internationl community.

    We should look at this issue not with a political point of view (because JHU or JVP against it or UNP support it) but country`s interest. Again what I am saying is not to fully reject 13 ammendment but to take off or change certain areas which will have a potential threat in future.

    This is politics. So, I believe what MR says is not exactly what MR believes.

    It is very clear just before 2005 November, CBK even tried to block MR. Most probably, SLFP did not help him much. IT was now JVP and JHU that stood for MR. So, it is easy to kick the ladder off when ONE IS at the top.

    Yet, MR is probably the best Leader that Sri lanka had since the Independence. Time will prove it further.

    Because of Tamil money, Thesavalame and Tamil Nationalism, Jaffna was never accessible to Sinhala people. So give Land powers to see how it will work.

    Some others say, give them power to see how they bing investment and develop their areas.

    Now they have East, They have IDPs, They were destroying their own. HOw many of them came out worked against it and helped Sri Lanka FINANCIALLY. they had lot of ideas to implement. BUT NOTHING ELSE.

    IT is SINHLA BUDDHIST CIVILIZATION that is in peril for over 1000 years. Because we did not have king for the whole country since when - a long time. Buddhists are people who in content with what ever little they have. So, they are not used to complain. Buddhist Don`t don`t expect harm to anyone. Yet, It is our culture that is being replaced, carved off, and destroyed by others.

    But, that does not mean they don`t expect anything. IT is up to the LEADER to listen carefully.

    AS FAR AS I KNOW SL - PRESIDENT HAVE not given even important Ministerial positions JHU MPs whether they are from central govt or from Provincial govt.

    What 13th ammendment will do is more ethnic polarisation. Tamils will start to think N/E is their country and their areas not entire Sri Lanka. Sinhalese will think NE as Tamil areas.

    This will not trigur peace but seperatism and division between Tamils and Sinhalese.

    [ What 13th ammendment will do is more ethnic polarisation. ]

    IN every way, as it is, 13th Amendnment is disaster.

    13th Amednment is good for decentralization of the parliament. Because, now all 225 are in Colombo. they are not there to serve the people.

    13th amendment also accepts that NE is Tamil homeland.
