Do you mean what you say , or, do you say what you mean. The country has fallen into a deep chasm of hell, much deeper than the deepest point in the ocean. Hell hath no greater fury than a Sri Lanka scorned.

H.E. Punishing will take a long time and fraud and corruption is huge. But without fraud or corruption why did you put SAITM on the streets against their wishes, because others chose the streets. Now give justice by attaching them to Moratuwa uni. and order that Kalutara hospitals also train Moratuwa medicos. It is not degree but academic of working in hospital that matters. Make some laws as leaders are expected to govern as well as talk. Leave a workable legacy not politics and degrees.

Excellent! What better idea and plan for sustaining power!!! Finding an answer to solving corruption some important parliamentarians of the country sought an answer from God as to when corruption will stop in Sri Lanka.God ponders a while and replies Oh!xnot in my time!
