    No way you can never repair that car. This is how these bulls are using vehicles bought with public money. Instead give them regular vehicles much cheaper

    As per the street lines, it's pretty much evident whose fault it is. Hope the truck driver will be cleared and released soon.

    This is reason as to why these ministers should be given vehicles worth millions.If this happened with an ordinary vehicle, he wouldn't be surviving ith minor injuries.

    How does a provincial minister have a vehicle worth tens of millions of rupees?

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:00 AM

    Sri Lanka is going through bad luck, the bad always survive.

    Too bad that these ministers aren't travelling in the best made Indian Alto.
