    Suq Madique Saturday, 25 October 2014 07:28 AM

    Hard to believe some supposedly educated people still fall for these gundus

    ravi Saturday, 25 October 2014 07:42 AM

    Government will have to do more things in future. A good step have kept, middle term development programmes need to be initiated like this with enhancing people well fare and economy. Look like no wrongful things in this budget. It is not a political budget.

    ANTON Saturday, 25 October 2014 07:56 AM

    YEAH, THIS TIME PUMPKIN INSTEAD OF CARROT.

    Dulan Saturday, 25 October 2014 08:42 AM

    How much of the promises of last budget was delivered?

    Amal Perera Saturday, 25 October 2014 09:04 AM

    Then he has all the necessary qualifications to be a country bumpkin!

    cheers Saturday, 25 October 2014 09:32 AM

    This is so far the best president ever the country had.He was given the vote to defeat the LTTE he did, broke JVP in to peaces and UNP in to holes.A leader is a person who leads from front not staying in a luxury house and he sees things to him self rather listening to gossip

    Nihal Saturday, 25 October 2014 10:01 AM

    Someone commented about a country Bumpkin....." When Adam delved and Eve span, who was the Gentleman?????????" He shouldnt forget many things, that we were sons and daughters of conutry Baiyaas once upon a time , 2) If not for this Game Baiyaa today we would require a PASSPORT to cross Anuradhapura and still there would be Bombs in the streets of Colombo and most of us would have been 6 feet down dead...I remember we all were asking the question Isnt there anybody to take the lead and destroy this Murderer Pirbakaran??? Pirbakaran himself said there is no Sinhalaya to challenge him , we all waited for this Messiah, and finally he came like the GAMUNU Kumaraya himself a southern Gamaya...If not for this great Sinhalaya today we would have been eating grass and this country would have been in pieces....

    shehan Saturday, 25 October 2014 10:16 AM

    Yeah..go and lick his foot...who knows you too will be made an ambassador.

    PDJ Saturday, 25 October 2014 10:21 AM

    Any average person can see clearly that this budget is a hurriedly modified one just after seeing the Uva Provincial election results.

    Definition I found in the urban dictionary for country bumpkin:A person, usually from a rural area, the south or small town; who speaks or behaves in a manner that indicates a lack of understanding of the ever changing, modern world. Country bumpkins tend to speak in terms of social overtones indicative of pre-civil rights America and characteristically speak in offensive terms without knowledge of doing so. A bumpkin is more ignorant than uneducated, though most are probably uneducated. Either way, educated or not, country bumpkins are neccesarily ignorant. Country bumpkins come in every ethnicity and in both genders.

    old citizen Monday, 27 October 2014 02:06 PM

    Bumpkin budget from a bumpkin to all the bumpkins.

    Concerned Voter Friday, 24 October 2014 07:42 PM

    I hope the promises are costed out by intelligent persons. This time around the average voter is better informed Mr.President.

    fawzan Friday, 24 October 2014 07:54 PM

    His manipulation and broken promises didn’t work with international community. Waite and see whether local man fall for it

    CHSNDRASOMA Friday, 24 October 2014 09:20 PM
