    Ravi Thursday, 17 January 2019 08:30 PM

    Chux Thursday, 17 January 2019 01:36 PM

    Shocking Thursday, 17 January 2019 07:02 PM

    The main idea in this seems to be that the President wantsthe people to forget all what happened prior to 8th January 2015!

    ET Thursday, 17 January 2019 07:02 PM

    Great. Also appoint a Presidential Commission to probe corruption from 2005 to 2015 as well. Then all are covered.

    Til Thursday, 17 January 2019 07:09 PM

    Lanka Shantha Thursday, 17 January 2019 07:32 PM

    We selected this man to catch those culprits who ate Government money during the MR Rule. 4 years he ruled as EP, now this man is going to catch those people who steal money during his rule. MR and his group will be happy that they are white washed as good people.Jeyawewa.

    DrThomas Thursday, 17 January 2019 07:32 PM

    Leon Thursday, 17 January 2019 09:08 PM

    Will there be another commission to investigate thecorruptions carried out by the president, his family andbrothers. Probably the GOD may have given them so muchwealth after he became the president.

    Sambo Friday, 18 January 2019 10:34 AM

    Why all of a sudden? Has he just woken up. what about his election promise to bring to justice of all those who stole public money by the billions. We cannot believe a word this president says cause he does something else.
