    Thank you sirs for acting for the public.

    Our current situation is the manifestation of years of funding discrimination, dispossession and marginalisation of minorities to the substantial exclusion of productive development and nation building activities. This resulted in the fabric of our society disintegrating leading to the present situation

    How is this going to help. Only thing politicians understand is the ballot box. We do not need a FR to detail the solutions which every one knows. The lawyers should spend time on more important legal issues and act in the best interests of our country.

    Finally someone has the guts to go to supreme courts regarding Economic mismanagement

    We laymen are ignorant of the law. It is heartening to notice that legal luminaries are taking action against a regime that is blatantly oblivious to the immense hardships faced and suffering being undergone by the people as never before in the history of this nation.

    Very happy to see the BASL active and working in the public interest. Best wishes.

    Nice to see BASL entering Public Interest litigation that Nagananda alone fought in the recent past.

    Until all those corrupt judges who have protected Rajas and all criminal politicians are shot in the independence Square one by one Sri Lanka will never be emancipated.

    All this time I think the BASL was a having a Rip Van Winkle sleep or they were sleep walking not know what the public were suffering in their livelihoods

    johan Friday, 25 March 2022 09:09 PM
