This is great... I had a chance to visit some of the mannar families. The situation is getting better. And its so much better than how it was in the begining of the year.

What about you dear Amman? wher shall we resettle you?

though he is a minister for resettlement, he doesn't enjoy the support from Tamil mass. He is an appointed worker to the Tamil mass. If he really proud of the work he has done, he should have faced the election to prove that or shold have been welcome by the people. There is no such a welcome. It raises many questions.

Do you think Karuna is bothered about his own people? he is being used against his own. Karuna is enjoying to the max.
