    Bad choice of a person to handle Christian affairs.

    this another way of bribing. Why does Sri Lanka need more ministers? It is a small country. All government bribed politicians by giving minister portfolio that is not required. It is a waste of resources. Sri Lanka has higher level of poverty or there are many people who even cannot feed themselves daily
