    National Economy, poverty elevation and a constitution that guarantees the rights of all citizens is what you should be fiercely involved and deliver while not getting involved in the business of petty issues such as bra throwing issues or stopping photographing of the sigiriya frescoes. Hope you will follow these precepts without wasting time on irrelevant issues.
