    Some day, sooner the better, I like to hear "225 MPs of the Sri Lanka parliament members went missing". Hope the these seven guys are fine.

    Sadly though, our 225 MPs will never go missing. It's up to us to dump them somewhere.

    If Karu Jayasuriya did not use the extra fuel from the military chopper yesterday we certainly could have used it to locate these lost individuals effectively. This is where we need these choppers for the useful purposes …. not to abuse by the political clowns.

    Absolutely true, now you will find Police and Army combing the jungles by foot but not one helicopter will be made available for a public cause.

    can't they use GPS to locate these guys? If someone kept their mobile phone on for sure provider/GPS may pinpoint their location. Ha ..... ha ...... when they lost their way only they remember parents? Before they go have they informed the parents?
