Mahinda Rajapakse’s manifesto to be released today.

The Friday (13th October) news telecast of the TNL contained an interesting item – that there is a plan by the Karuna faction to assassinate Ranil Wickremesinghe.

check for the separatist Tamils, who keep crying foul against the
Sinhalese at every turn of a corner.Post your comments
