    All the promises are broken by the Yahapalanaya. Heavy increase in essential commodities. The saddest is taxing the patients seeking medical treatment. The government should remember that public seek private medical services as the government hospitals are crowded, waiting list, tests being not available etc... No government has ever did such things to make life difficult for the people. They got a fitting tribute during Local government elections and more will follow suit.

    There are no poor people in this country. Govt knows it. Otherwise they will not increase prices on gas, onions, potatoes, dhals etc.
