    If this fellow has self-respect he should resign. Yes, he was taking nonsense, that is a fact.

    Seems like, finally they have found a puppet who can fulfill sir's script. Anyway Dr. Jayaruwan should be respected for speaking the truth and not bowimg down to the high ups unlike others.

    Today we have so many spokesmen. We have Army, Police, Health Ministry, GMOA, and so forth. However, the pandemic keeps on spreading. Rather than changing spokesmen, the government should do something to stop the virus.

    They all are a bunch of idiots playing drama to the gallery with money making media controlled by God Father and his goons fooling the people of Banana Republic.

    We salute you being an independent professional who spoke the truth fearlessly. Don’t give up to serve Sri Lanka and poor people. Things will turn favorable for you again because henchmen cannot perform in the long run.

    Sambo Sunday, 15 November 2020 08:32 AM

    Why we Sri Lankan's never prosper is because the people with ability are pushed out and those who boot lick are granted top decision making post. They just don't want educated who would over ride their stupid decisions.

    Appointing and disappointing! Hope he will not accept any special posts without a gazette notice!!!
