    we Sri Lankans are capable of helping our flood victims. we dont need such outside assistance for wich well have to pay a heavy price later. this kind of shameless assistance is sought by politicians so that they something to distribute to garner their votes. we need to pay for it as a nation later. flood victims can be taken care of if PMs bullet proof limousine order is cancelled. via DM Android App

    When anything is given free, the yakkos will be quiet and happy.

    These are all tactics. They want to arrive before China arrives. Hope they will NOT push for CEPA agreement in return.

    JOSEPH Friday, 20 May 2016 05:24 PM

    Why do not you and patriots protest in front of the Indian Embassy to take the ships back?

    munas Friday, 20 May 2016 05:38 PM

    Do not you know this is a trick to get some hidden benefit from sri lanka. Can you guess what is Indian aim?

    It's a real shame to see some the anti Indian sentiments published over here at time like this when people are in trouble and seeking assistance no matter from whom. This is the problem we have in this country where majority of the population are uneducated and walking time bombs. Be more sensible and comment with more responsibility.These are called the Yakkos.

    It shows none of your relatives are affected.
