    kith udugama Friday, 25 April 2014 09:00 AM

    HYPOCRITES PLEASE NOTE . There are more burning issues to tackle in this country.. People do not have money to buy basic foods.. No proper medical facilities for the poor! Public transport ??? Criminal activities, No law and order. Children have no money to buy shoes to wear to school,
    Adult patients have to pay Rs 700 for 4 diapers , Rs. over 5000 per month. This is not fashion wear, ask people who look after their elderly parents,who are confined to bed 24 hours a day

    Apparently the absentees are from the religious minded political entity. They should be barred to enter their respective place of worship.

    absentees are eels and showed their patriotism. via DM Android App

    The four notable ministers who were absent playing a double game. They should have been straight forward and voted against it. But they did not have the back bone.

    Government needs lot of money for the next years presidential election . So they will bring in these 3 casinos at any cost . 90% of the total parliament do not approve this.

    Well, nobody wants to walk the plank in a shark infested sea, or keel-hauled by a 'Captain Bligh' do they?
