  • Reply to: Ravi Resigns: Says he sacrificed position to ‘set an example’ and for ‘democracy and good governance’   1 week 2 hours ago
    WHY ARE YOU ALL ONLY CHASING BEHIND RAVI KARUNANAYAKE. WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER CABINET MINISTERS AGAINST WHOM CORRUPTION COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN MADE? TWO OF THE MOST WANTED MINISTERS FOR SUCH CORRUPTION ARE, A MINORITY COMMUNITY POLITICAL PARTY LEADER FROM THE NORTH WHO IS ALLEGED TO HAVE SWINDLED MILLIONS OF RUPEES IN TRADE DEALS AND PAYMENTS FROM THE ROAD DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AND THE OTHER IS A MINISTER WHO IS A CLOSE ASSOCIATE OF DR. NEVILLE FERNANDO. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE BOLD ENOUGH TO BRING THEM TO BOOK TOO. IF THE COMPLAINTS AGAINST THEM IS PROBED, MANY EVIDENCES WILL WE REVEALED TO THE CID AND THE PRESIDENTS COMMISSION.

    Cut down more trees and see what you'll get. Nobody understands this until they have to gape at the skies for that life giving liquid, WATER. It is a 30 minute job nowadays to bring down a tree that has grown to its size for about 100 years. Trees are cut down for the lightest excuse, be it, urbanization, agriculture, fuelwood, you just name it. Cut them down if you must or if they pose a danger to human life but please plant others in their place. They are rainmakers, the oxygen providers, the soil conservators, at no extra cost us ungrateful humans. What we do not realize and take for a joke is that they provide the 2 most essential elements necessary for us humans to live, namely, water and oxygen.

  • Reply to: Thirimanne recalled after 13 months   2 weeks 1 day ago
    I have nothing agianst Thirimanne. If included he may score big too. But how about Roshaine and Sadeera who have averages of over 50 in first class cricket ? Why are they ignored and this guy with a average of 24 included. It is so unfair by these cricketers. They must be wondering what they have to do to be included in the SL side. Come on Sanath be rational.

    If the Government Doctors are treated as labourers then they well deserve it as they are behaving worse than labourers.
  • Reply to: Gnanasara Thera Case: Prosecution concludes giving evidence   2 weeks 1 day ago
    Looking at the face of Gnanasara Thera, it is difficult to imagine it could be the face that could hate another human being just for being different i.e. in religion, class, creed or colour. It's doubly difficult when it is the face of a priest. The Buddhist hierarchy should grow a spine and disrobe this man for bringing a glorious religion into disrepute if nothing else.

    Surely there is ample evidence here for a charge of perverting the course of justice? It is an utter joke that action has not yet been taken in this regard.

    With Trump's new tough immigration policy it won't be too late before ICE Immigration and Customs Enforcement nab these guys and boot them out of the U.S.

  • Reply to: From Kandy to Colombo: University students launch five-day protest march   2 weeks 2 days ago
    These fools can go in any amount of protest marches - not for 5 days but please go for even 50 days but they cannot topple a government for an unreasonabloe reson. Now , when the "Pramathiya" is out in 2 weeks lets see what will happen. Let them shout but ythe government shoul do what is right and tell the people in graphic details what are the medical faculties that lack these standards and what action is to be taken with regard to these anomalies. Also these students also should be brought in front of a camera on TV and given the anomalies of the othr faculties and ask them what action they propose to take given that ACCORDING TO THEM ONLY saitem HAS ALL THE ANOMALIES. Let them shout scream, go on strike but the governmentshould go ahead,, collect any anomalies, and those who do not attend lectures by a certian date should be kicked out. We the people will undergo any difficulty due to the lack of new doctors but even with the present doctors we go though untold hardships. So not having these fools is not going to kill us anyway but we the people will bear up as long as these protesting students are kicked out and new batches taken in.
  • Reply to: Minimum standards on medical education in two weeks: Rajitha   2 weeks 2 days ago
    Minimum standards will have to apply from now on and not retrospectively to GMOA officials who too could be netted in. What about underprivileged state admissions below par these last few years.

  • Reply to: Conditions unmet: GMOA threaten strike tomorrow   3 weeks 3 days ago
    GMOA must be blind to see that all they have demanded are already in progress. Even civies in action was explained by the police. Its RJ like Gnana avoiding arrest, breaking law and order saying life threatened.
