    Why is this? Do they have any disease? to be dumped to Sri Lanka?

    Hand over the cows who wasted 57000 million rupees to build useless this port to State farm, while 500 schools not having single toilet in the country.

    Those cows have more brains and will not vote for these buffoon politicians of SL. It is we, the proud patriotic buffalo citizens who will vote enmasse.

    I think the God loves Hambantota people; when one old cow is removed from Hambantota to Kurunagala, it is replaced by stock of cows and that is from Australia.

    Had it been the Rajapaksa regime, the cows would have been airlifted to Ambawela. Basil and his chairman then follows by helicopter. Oh! That is no more.

    chandler Wednesday, 15 July 2015 02:36 AM

    Please look at the eyes of cows, how scared these animals are. Hopefully, cows had been handled not in a cruel manner.
