    Have a lovely TRIP while the people elected you are dying due to flood, cost of living, etc.

    Sincere Monday, 29 May 2017 11:34 AM

    Shocked to hear the politician who said he was of people leaving his and taking wings to USA at a time tens and thousands of his people are facing disaster and untold hardship! . The day you will come again to beg our votes, we will remind you of this! Bon Voyage PM! Enjoy your trip

    Oh, my gosh, this is turning out to be a leadership musical chair competition between the Prez and the Premier. When one comes and barely gets out of his traveling clothes, to put it literally, the other goes out. Yahapalanaya is losing its credibility by the day.

    Nihal Amarasekera Monday, 29 May 2017 11:47 AM

    May be some kind of a BOND. Big ISSUE.

    mohamed Monday, 29 May 2017 11:47 AM

    The country is poor, people are struggling to put food on the table and now it is sinking due to the floods. Your PM is jaunting to a rich western country? Is he mad?

    Desmond Jeromme Monday, 29 May 2017 12:12 PM

    Why not he go for a complete Medical Check Up here in SriLanka.

    German Jacob Monday, 29 May 2017 12:12 PM

    Is it with the State expenses or his private money?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 29 May 2017 12:14 PM

    When the country is under water and people are displaced, it is not fair enough for the PM to make Foreign trips showing blind excuses.

    Manuel Benjamin Monday, 29 May 2017 12:15 PM

    A responsible PM will never run away for 2 weeks and hide in USA, when the country is sinking.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 29 May 2017 12:20 PM

    Looks like Sri Lanka is still backward in medical field in spite of spending billions each year on health services.Plus millions public money spent overseas on politicians health.

    rasheed Monday, 29 May 2017 10:29 AM

    PM should have taken the Ministry of Foreign affairs than given to Minister Ravi.
