    This amounts to direct bribery. Election campaign already started. Can the old committee decide on major matters during the interim period. This will definitely influence elections

    They should have got UPUL Tharanga in Category A. He has been a main player. Dimuth should be in CAT B. He has not performed that much.

    Whatever you increase you can't beat IPL. Please increase the salaries of poor workers who are struggling 3 meals a day.
