    What wrong with the statement "mega development projects would not suffice to win votes"? Its actually a very valid statement. People's grievances, aspirations are not solely based on economic development.

    Give those poor people rice, Dhal and dry fish at a concession rate. They cannot afford to have one square meal a day. That is what you really need to do. Mega projects will never help them to feed their kids

    No they deserve CAKE

    Janaki Kalansuriya Sunday, 06 April 2014 11:22 PM

    Siripala must have thought that all Silva's enjoy freedom of speech with the boss.

    Ammaa Sunday, 06 April 2014 01:31 AM

    Siripala. Sirisena. Look baby well, you all get promotion. Behave like Mervin , No problem

    The king must have the basic intelligence to understand simple comments of a senior minister.

    Nihal Saturday, 05 April 2014 07:12 AM

    By mega projects you can earn trillions of money that could be used to give laptops, cars to media men then cell phones, saries, rice, alcohol to foolish public... the way to win elections

    Paackeer Saturday, 05 April 2014 07:31 AM
