    Buruwa Yes what else can you expect given government revenue dropped due to Covid 19 and expenditure significantly up.

    All the passed years the LKR was manipulatet by orders of the governments. Now the CB has not any more Dollars for manipulations. The real value of the LKR is about $ 1 = LKR 230.

    Is there a cabinet now without a government. That's very strange. They speak on TV of a prime minister. Do we have a prime minister or an ex.

    thats good, but on what basis? why is the government being biased not allowing other Sri Lankans to come back to Sri Lanka? if they allow some they must allow all?
