    Commendable article, that said, surely and steadily the UNP is becoming something of the past, from their leader to the rest of the party members they are trying to paint themselves white by trying to act as if they had played no part in the 1983 riots, when the UNP was the ruling part, J R Jayawardena was the main culprit who let the whole sitiation get out of hand. Now all these idiots are trying to act `Holier than thou` by trying to blame others.

    Admitting their mistakes and moving forward would be the noble thing to do rather than deliberately lying to the people at every turn and making thorough asses of themselves.

    Well dones Sir, indeed well written article calling the Spade a Spade. JRJ and Gamini Dissanayake consortium cannot absovle themeselves from their sins of burning the one of the best known libraries in Asia (The Jaffna Library). If the people think that was a loss to the TAMILs`s they are mistaken and its loss for the entire Sri Lanka. Being Librarian myself I know about libraries. Now, look at the state of our National Library in Colombo? Its pathetic to see the mess there, when other libraries in the world has gone beyond the Horizon, we are still carwling aren`t we?

    Teassure the Books and knowledge, its what you are giving to the future generation irrespective of Tamils, Muslims or Sinhalese.
