    Did you take any legal action against that Chief Minister "Sari pota" who organized a wedding few months ago in Kandy?

    Investigate child abuse but don’t make our country to become paranoid like Britain where it is common for the police to raid houses and arrest the parents and take away the children permanently from the family. Only if you live in Britain and see it for yourself you would feel what a crazy country Britain is.
