Nero fiddles whilst Rome is burning! Ranil Wickremasighe talks about issues just to satisfy his ego. When Narendra Modi comes to Sri Lanka next month he will be accompanied by Top Indian Administrative Service Officers who run the affairs of state and are empowered to handle National issues as non political Advisors to the Government of India. Therefore the visit of PM Ranil to India shortly must be viewed as a gross waste of National resources when there is a well structured opportunity to discuss diplomatic matters at the highest level.between India and Sri Lanka thus making the announcement of another trip useless and only serve as an avenue to escape the real issues of the country thereby hoodwinking the people as is his usual unproductive stance. People realising his ineffectiveness and arrogance kept him and his capitalist cronies at bay on over 20 times till he piggy backed into power on the shoulders of the 2015 ,making a mountain out of a mole hill on the financial mismanagement of Rajapakse and continuimg to use this 'Scapegoat' to cover up his own misdeeds as presently exposed which surpass those of the Rajapakse regime by over two two fold in the ineffective two year period which has heaped economic misery on the people. The SLFP under President Maitripala Sirisena is more than competent to effectively manage the economy of the country and bring redress in lines with the clear vision of the Late Hon. SWRD Bandaranaike.
