    This is the truth story of all these Monday, 30 March 2020 07:34 PM

    These results because of what 1- government allowed chinese to roam around the city and even government did not ban chinese coming into sri lanka until the last. 2- The present government has many SRI LANKAN political supporters, So finally government did not care when they all returned to sri lanka with corona virus. No immigration incoming records or out going records. Even nobody know how they entered the country and left by boat or ship? SO NOW PEOPLE ARE DYING HERE AND DAY BY DAY NUMBERS ARE INCREASING.. AND PAWULPAKSA FAMILY IS ENJOYING IN TEMPLE TREES AND ALSO IN HAMBANTOTA.,
