  • Reply to: Call to increase MPs’ emoluments   4 hours 15 min ago
    Oh Yes! MPs are in a miserable state!! I am afraid, the country is in a miserable state due to the selfish, mostly uneducated, thuggish and corrupt MPs. The economy and the rupee are going down, the farmers in the country are suicidal due to the effect of Sena bugs and the price of fertilisers, people have no money to give food to their children but MPs have been provided with fat salaries, cars and free allowance of fuel and discounted meals etc yet they request an increase in the salaries and allowances,

    I fully agree with the writer that our engineers lack the practical approach and communication skills. It is partly the fault of our parents who dissuade their children to dirty their hands. As students they must orientate in engineering drawing, dismantling and assembling machinery,constructing working models etc, to develop their innovation and conceptual skills. Graduate engineers must work for years on the Drawing board and Construction Projects to get hands on experience in engineering as done in the U K. The best experience a graduate could obtain is working for the Private sector and not the Government service.

    What the Mahanayake Thera should state very clearly is that there is absolutely NO need for a New Constitution at this juncture. No need to 'pussy cat' around this issue. Also Mahanayake Thera hopefully realises that what many of these Parliamentarians come and tell him are absolute and total lies. He should ask them this question straight. Please don not tolerate liars and antinational elements. MM

    We are currently dual citizen of Sri Lanka with N I C card,Citizenship Certificate,Driving Licence,Passports etc. Having disposed our permanent residence recently we share living with a close relative and travel abroad frequently. Legally we are bound to notify a change of address on the above documents. However, the government red tape is hindering the process and demanding proof of residence by way of House Deeds,Utility Bills,etc which we cannot supply. Please advise the legal procedure to fix this issue of a contact address change on these documents.

    Sri Lanka is a stunning island paradise in the Indian Ocean with white sandy beaches lavish plant, amazing experiences, incredible wildlife, cascading waterfalls and an abundant heritage. The island of Sri Lanka is approximately pear-shaped. In the 19s and 20s centuries, Sri Lanka wound up being a plantation economy, popular for its production and export of cinnamon, rubber and Ceylon tea, which remains a trademark across the country export.

    Of the two brothers there is no doubt Gota, is the better one to get the country into good shape. It does not matter who becomes the President on condition that he takes an Oath not build a Dynasty and do his utmost to annihilate nepotism and corruption with a view to develop our country. A maximum term of two is adequate for a President. Future politicians must be professionals to govern our country with qualifications in the field of Constitution Law,Political Science,Accounting, Economics or a proven track record of his skills, in order to apprehend and assess proposals from other developed countries. They must also have negotiating skills and be fully conversant in English,Sinhala and Tamil. The Politicians should set a model to our country like Fiji Islands and adopt a low profile to alleviate, attachment, desire, greed, delusion among the general public.The present myth of procuring blessings from Astrologers and influential monks is a fake to the educated and a drawcard to the rural folk, with deference to Buddhism.

    I fully endorse your selection criteria for future politicians. However,I would add another clause vi, viz " should take an oath to refrain from nepotism and negotiating commissions on development projects given by donor countries.
