    Most of the relief items will be diverted to the armed forces and to the market. India still has not learned about the Govt of SL.

    Next will be the Chinese and the Pakistanis sending relief to their crown colony!!! Hope the Govt appreciates the assistance to this satellite state which has been a playgroungd for the Chinese Paksitanis and the Indians who want to beat each other to help Sri Lanka!!!

    Japun Baba Saturday, 15 January 2011 02:32 AM

    Will India undertake or supervise the distribution too? Sri Lankan politicians and officials cannot be trusted, because they blatantly demonstrate their corrupt nature
