    Well, they should be arrested for obstruction of government programs. In fact, ever since this government came to power, everyday there were strikes and protests and it continues unabated. The JO doesn't allow this government to do his job. Government should stop treating the highway robbers as politicians and citizens, they are criminals who cause so much of inconvenience to the public and the economy as well.

    What is wrong in leasing it out to India or china, when no takers are available in sri lanka. Internationally due to our labour protests, corrupt politics, uncertainity, protests etc.. we have been overlooked. Idiots protesting for unwanted issues doesn't understand.
