    At least why can't they give these participants some good meals and proper liquor without providing them cheap meals and poisonous kasippu?? Hundreds were seen in a deplorable state fallen on the streets of Colombo!

    Absolutely Jerome. I think that is why they took the streets after three years of hunger and despair.
