The nuisance by the name of submitting nominations for presidential elections

The two prominent candidates for the Sri Lankan Presidential Elections, Mahinda and Ranil are due to submit their nominations today. And the city traffic police have made a complete nuisance out of it. Blocking half the roads to the Colombo city and creating huge traffic jams for hours.

They claim that there are serious terrorist threats. But I believe it’s their own fault that terrorists exist in this country and if there’s a threat, it’s their problem. Why should the general public go through such hassle and state waste time and money because of this?
