    To whom and how do we report curfew violations including illicit drug and alcohol sales? Police in Kandy and Peradeniya are not interested

    Every one should be well adhered to the rules this time.. but arresting won't be the exact solution for all the problem that pressurized people would have...government should be with the community in this hard time..

    Hundreds of vehicles are on the road all over. Tell me a single Pohottuwa politician at home. They are all on the road, campaigning. Police can catch them. Leave innocent people looking for food.

    Only SL can be so dumb. This is the best way to spread the corona virus with all these people in jail. Do on the spot fines idiots

    Start imposing spot fines and turn then to where they came from. Spot fine of Rs 500 to start with is good
