    Good idea. But these cunning political opportunists cannot be trusted especially corrupted politicians.

    Perumal Friday, 09 May 2014 05:20 AM

    Good idea! Men could be weaned from smoke if they could be diverted to drugs

    chamara Friday, 09 May 2014 05:20 AM

    Pradeep Friday, 09 May 2014 05:25 AM

    What a joke !

    Ahmed Friday, 09 May 2014 05:29 AM

    Its quite ironic to see Duminda Silva in this!! ha ha ha

    Pathi Friday, 09 May 2014 10:02 AM

    The message given to the public is that smoking is bad, but taking drugs is ok

    piyal Friday, 09 May 2014 10:05 AM

    these guys got nothing to do - once in a way trying to show off - a bit - the guys on the picture pretty famous ones for lot of reasons other than Hon Minister .

    The citizen Friday, 09 May 2014 10:16 AM

    Without staging these boru shows at the expense of peoples of this country, get that picture approved by the Parliament of Sri Lanka printed on the packet soon. That is what is required. The moment smokers see that picture so many will certainly give up smoking. Is there anything else to be done in this regard?

    Asokamala Friday, 09 May 2014 05:42 AM

    These politicians are trying to educate the public only on the adverse effects of smoking of cigarettes. Other drugs brought into the country for consumption is alright.

    Dilan Fernando Friday, 09 May 2014 10:19 AM

    Many here would have wished if they could display a banner like this
    " Heroin is not a Drug ..it is a Medicine... "

    අදහස නම් හොදයි නමුත් මේක පිටිපස්සෙ ඉන්න කට්ටිය ගැන තම ප්‍රශ්නේ,
    අපේ ලංකාවේ මිනිසුනට හොද දෙයක් වෙනවා නම් එච්චරයි.
