    In few months all the corrupted culprits of MR era will be with this government

    Yes public has to pay for voting for these cut throats. Do anything and get the 20A passed - small price to pay.

    I thought the much hyped 19th amendment restricted the total ministers to 75 or so. Now it should be over 90. Welldone Ranil! you deceived us squarely.

    This is a joke. Parliament to be dissolved soon, why do we need these positions for few weeks

    HIRAN Wednesday, 10 June 2015 07:05 PM

    Looks bad, but it is the correct way to go. otherwise MR will put his hand.

    Five state institutions borrowed Rs. 2 trillion under MR govt. HarshaNo system in place to recover funds

    Sikuru Wednesday, 10 June 2015 07:44 PM

    To get more votes for the 20A and less votes against ranil.
