New Left Front Leader and Member of the Dehiwala Mount Lavinia Municipal Council Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne had accepted the challenge posed by Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardene for a public debate on the statement which the Minister earlier made that a family of three could survive by spending a maximum amount of Rs 7500 per month.

Dr. Karunaratne told Daily Mirror that he had already informed Minister about his intention for a public debate and is negotiating with him on the matter.

He said a private TV channel had come forward to coordinate the debate and telecast it live.

“I decided to go for the debate as I want to prove that the minister is trying to teach people how to live like paupers,” he said.  (Yohan Perera )

    Bahu, you are wasting your time by debating with an ediot. Up to now, I though that you were cleverer than many politicians and now I have to eat my humble pie.

    Tony Haniffa Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:00 AM

    You wont even rent a house for Rs,7500 easy talking.

    David Cameron Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:02 AM

    Good to do a Commedy Film out of the debate!

    siripala Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:30 AM

    He is going to talk to real Doctor - Poor Minister.

    Halmassa Thursday, 29 March 2012 12:37 PM

    Rs. 2500/- enough for a person to eat 3 meals for a month. No prob. Its brunch and dinner with a sugarless black tea in da evening. Sugar and sweet food are not good for health.

    Ramana Nihal Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:38 AM

    Minister bandu will learn economics from Dr.Bahu
    One thing after the debate Minister Bandu should resign from his post.

    chandrakumar Friday, 30 March 2012 06:48 AM

    Bahu is only a spent force ,always barking at the wrong tree regarding the national issues. Whatever is said about his acedemic qualfications ,he is an utter failure in politics who cannot muster 5000 votes these days. So may be Bandu get away scot free even he is at wrong.

    R sundaralingam Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:28 AM

    Yes it is worth the debate. The minister better prove his point

    Gamini Udagepola Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:29 AM

    Nice pair ( Maru doubala).

    LunuMiris Thursday, 29 March 2012 01:00 PM

    Yes, you are correct. Bahu has a first class pass from Peradeniya Engineering faculty and PhD from England. He also passes his Advance Level as one of the top students in the country. Thank you Dr. Bahu.

    Mervyn Friday, 30 March 2012 01:04 PM

    The Minister will win, how? He will say practise what I do.

    Citizen Saturday, 31 March 2012 11:35 AM

    You have 3 invitations from 3 different party's and you have accept it as you were asking O/L, A/L and University graduated personnel for the debate

    willows Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:34 AM

    usj1976 Thursday, 29 March 2012 01:28 PM

    Yes of course, Mr. Minister can use Demand & Supply theory to prove his argument

    shantha madawela Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:50 AM

    Well done Bahu, our best wishes...

    Mad Cow 671 Friday, 30 March 2012 01:09 AM

    I hope the debate will have simultaneous interpretation in the other two languages. Perhaps it can be live, from Sugathadhasa stadium?

    Jassim Friday, 30 March 2012 01:14 PM

    I will be very happy if I can live at Rs.83/- per day. Is there a place where I can get single lunch packet for less than Rs.100/-? Can somebody show me.

    Ruhunu Kolla Thursday, 29 March 2012 01:50 PM

    Now do not get surprised if there is an island wide power cut during the debate!

    piyal Friday, 30 March 2012 07:11 AM

    What ever political view Dr Bahu may got
    his credentials as a scholar (double dr)
    not match to the lower grade minister - who does not
    understand the meaning of the figures - like his most of
    colleagues - thru out our history people who should have been in the parliament always out and vise verse -

    afzal Friday, 30 March 2012 01:36 AM

    7500 rupees is not enough even to levakanda

    kuhan Friday, 30 March 2012 07:48 AM

    Don't waste your time Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne ,he only gave his wife to 7,500 to run their family for a month.

    kiribath Thursday, 29 March 2012 09:27 AM

    I belive that Dr wickramabahu has a Phd in maths

    Ravindra fernando Friday, 30 March 2012 07:29 AM

    Hey, Smoe of Bandu's students are Dr Mervin and G.L, thats how those two got thier Phd .

    Kavi Friday, 30 March 2012 02:30 AM

    I am sure, this debate is not going to happen, as it is going to open up lot of other negative stories against the rulers.

    The bread eating email circulating tells the truth and why a debate?.

    Fazli Thursday, 29 March 2012 09:32 AM

    If Dr. Bahu goes on to win the debate, what next ?
    The govt will offer subsidy ?

    ANTON Wednesday, 04 April 2012 07:59 AM

    After watching yesterdays argument on TV I realized that this man is a bloody idiot and a campus maniac.

    Pramod Thursday, 29 March 2012 04:01 PM

    Before they beigin the debate both must compare their educational background.

    bernard Thursday, 29 March 2012 03:48 PM

    Even a grade five student can challenge this joker and win the debate.

    Another Thursday, 29 March 2012 10:35 AM

    The prices of all items will be slashed by 90% before the election
