    Morons are taxing wealth instead of income. The indirect taxes have gone up while the direct taxes have been reduced! The very opposite of what the pm said he would do. Well done boys.

    Our investments ruined. Underworld playing havoc. Good governance, law and order not as promised. Oh and most importantly, Tamils are still waiting their political solution.Thank you yahapalanya.

    We just replaced a corrupt government with an ignorant government.

    Premalal Tuesday, 08 March 2016 01:36 PM

    No budget, no law and order, no justice for the crooks, overcrowded cabinet, bloated public sector cost. What do you expect?
