It is true that cost of living should be controlled while projects like this are also undertaken.These all are part and parcel of an economy and have links to each other. Projects like this can generate more jobs,more productions,more money circulations etc in economy and can lead to reduction of living cost finally.

Still SL is a developing country. We have to pass some hard time during this period. First think of the country. Then the stomach. Spending huge amount of money and the same time can't do huge pay hike and reduce cost of living.
Mahinda Ratapata Thursday, 04 November 2010 01:04 PM
Thank You...I wear different hats but have only ONE pocket. And that pocket belongs ONLY to me.

Look the above statement by a professor ............ This the reason we need a revolution in our education system ,
Had ever Europe or American professor made such a remarks about a politician ?

@Mohomed, Do you still alive? It is like you going to die for long time because you have no money to live. It is now time for you to die withoout food if you have this much big problem in cost of living.
Health Office Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:16 AM
Eat more vegitable and fruts, eat less carbohydrates like rice and bread. Eat red rice, do not eat super white bread, Then you live healthy and would be able to keep your food budget under control too.

LEADER OF DA DECADE! WE SALUTE YOU! PLS BRING PROSPERITY TO EVERY SRILANKAN FM HAMBANTOTA TO JAFFNA!
Ruwanthi Thursday, 04 November 2010 01:33 PM
Yes every body like to see projects like this fruition. But its not whole MRs work. Next year when he opens colombo mathara highway..you will say its totally MR s work.. funny
Puwak Badeliya Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:18 AM
Good question. Reducing cost of living cannot be done in a knee-jerk reaction. Short term patch work will not help. When the country develops cost of living would gradually become manageable. This project is one step in a long term development plan for this country and we should appreciate it.
Puwak Badeliya Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:20 AM
Idiotic comment, to say the least. You should be happy to see a project like this seeing fruition.
Shantha Premaratne Thursday, 04 November 2010 02:16 PM
Dear Citizens, Last 30 years you, whoever did not get united as a fellow Sri Lankan either you are a Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims or a Bergers. That the main reason we were suffered by the LTTE terrorists inside the country and its all propaganda, unlawful actitivities against us abroad which have been arranged by the Tamil Diaspora and INGOs with the help of their Govt. Even now after the blady war, pls think twice to unite and work together with our President to take this country forward to be a wonderful nation. Therefore, my dear Sir, President, we are all proud of you. God bless you.
dave Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:22 AM
We have Extreme trust on you Mr. Rajapaksha. That is why we voted you in 2005. Let us see after another 2 years.

M.H. Mohd Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:23 AM
Well Done Mahinda but we need your support to reduce the cost of living in the country...
AH Thursday, 04 November 2010 02:32 PM
I guess you are the most ignorant n narrow minded
AH Thursday, 04 November 2010 02:33 PM

asoka abeywardena Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:35 AM

Nilantha Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:45 AM
Well done Sir
ajith Thursday, 04 November 2010 09:46 AM
CBK must be furious with this regime. What she couldn't deliver in 10 long years are been done overnight by MR. No need of explanation as seeing is believing.. After all,MR won the impossible terror war and brought peace to SL.

Long live Maharajanani.
If Mahinda is there for another ten years, Sri Lanka will be like S' Pore.
looney Thursday, 04 November 2010 10:13 AM
he would have made the small miracle even smaller had he been for a nother few years :)
NISSANKA Thursday, 04 November 2010 10:16 AM
Well, CBK bought herself a castle in UK. Didn't she ?. Besides, she treated Mahinda as if he is not in the same class as herself.
