    I voted for this Govt. to bring in the culprits who robbed the country and enriched themselves. I am disgusted and hope the President and Prime Minister will read these comments and act. % votes will go to another party coming election!

    It is certainly not in the spirit of Lord Buddha to waste 30 million rupees to construct a monument in memory of a monk.

    Agreed do we want the corrupt RAJAPAKSAS who took plane loads out on jaunts all over the world cancelling regular flights of Sri Lankan airlines

    These large Supplementary Estimates are making a mockery of budgetary process. The Supplementary Estimate must at least state why it was not possible to include the provision sought in the original budget estimate.It must also include the revised figures for the Total Expenditure and total Income as of date of submission of the Supplementary EstimateRMB Senanayake

    Sincere Wednesday, 06 December 2017 09:55 AM

    Pls do not forget to include the empty building in Rajagiriya.

    Though we have huge foreign debt's to pay off and have to save money for the government ,at least that is what PM says all the time

    Ban all their travels. It's waste of public money. What are they going for? Is it a full paid holiday.
