    Now none of the citizens can make out what this lunatic is rambling. Under the circumstances, Muthuhettigama might swear in as PM.

    Sri Lanka's economy is bleeding. Let people power oust the incumbent President. He has proven beyond doubt , with the Supreme Court agreeing , that he is incompetent to run the country.The so called ' attorney general' too must resign.
