    what about our 'best friends' China, Iran, and India... only the 'western enemies' seem to be concerned. Not even the good govt.

    Minister Maithripala is one of the very few ministers who is trying to do something for the badly affected people. We must support his efforts.

    Stop politicising a disaster where lives are at stake !!! How long has it taken for you to consider this after the floods? Games played due to the coming of LG elections....

    So, this is what the much maligned World Food Programme is donating : what does our benevolent government going to give?

    How much of Rice, Suger, Dhal and How many Milk and caned fish per week per five member family? Any way thanks to UN and thanks for distribution at least infront of media.

    "Will be distributed", that's what the minister has said. So this means that flood relief has still not been done?
