    So another excuse to print more money and then they continue to deny that there is no inflation.

    Is it for CHOGM or for narrowing the deficit of forthcoming budget ?

    We are not at all bothered about the new Currency Notes, but we are worried how we are going to pay-off the UN-bearable Loan SL had taken from China.

    Is it with the CHOGM logo or is it with Mahinda Rajapakse's face?

    With today's cost of living, a Rs 500 coin would have been more appropriate

    Govt should distribute wheelbarrows to carry money around when shopping.
