    Why does sri lanka need more ministers? The govt should be looking at cutting down unwanted ministerial position to save costs rather than appointing more. So that the debt cud be paid and relieve the public of taxes.

    Ranil pacifies the Juniors and offering Deputy ministerial posts... but he never thought that he is adding more burdens to the public doing so.
