    May Day is a day of celebration for the work force not for political parties to have rallies, first time in the history of the world

    Wise Donkey Sunday, 08 April 2018 12:59 PM

    Why don't you make it on 1st of June call it June day instead of May day! As it is I am afraid that you may change New Year Day from 1st of January to 7 January. Please tell us whether Mahinda's astrologer advised you to do this change?.

    Peter Sunday, 08 April 2018 05:18 PM
