    Our hearts go out to these brave navy personnel who have put their lives on line to save their fellow citizens, some of whom are the worst types of people that a country could have. All I can say at this moment is that we wish them a speedy recovery.

    You guys should understand that this pandemic is very dangerous unlike the other viruses and it can spread in all communities quickly as most Sri Lankans especially in the rural areas neither do have proper food nor money for survival and they tend to interact with their neighbours. With these people call for social distancing will not be very effective. We will see the number of Covid 19 victims increasing the near future. Therefore, why dont you guys impress upon the Prez and PM not to rush for election at a time like this?

    It seems the army commander is the president and the decision maker of our lives and future of the of the country. Ajith Rohana and the army commander decide whom to arrest, whom to detain, whom to punish, whom the fine, whom to jail, whom to quarantine and not, whom to allow to go Scott Free, whose lives to cause mayhem and disaster and whose life to ruin and whose vehicles to be sized and whose image to be tarnished and whose not. This the plight of the country today. These two figures are the law and order of the day.
