    Our politicians need to be hanged for impoverishing the people

    Mandayan Friday, 23 November 2018 11:12 PM

    The political uncertainty make the foreign businessmen to take their invested $ and flee. That the reason for the surge!!

    lkboy Friday, 23 November 2018 02:17 PM

    Ayyo where is our fake finance minister?

    Lankan Friday, 23 November 2018 02:27 PM

    My3. Ranil. Mahinda Please no polics in Srilanka. You can go Africa pls

    Dhaya Friday, 23 November 2018 03:40 PM

    Africa is doing much better than our country. Africa is using Sri lanka as example for poor management.

    saman Friday, 23 November 2018 02:43 PM

    Congratulations!!

    OVER TO YOU - Mr TUTION Master. Friday, 23 November 2018 02:44 PM

    I am asking again - what does our erudite tution master has to interpret this as - is it that - "MR has at last helped our maids (slaving in the middle east) to be able to sent more rupees to the folks back at home - which the yahapalana govt was unable to carry out ! "

    R Friday, 23 November 2018 02:44 PM

    Sirisena’s thinking is let us, look after our Rupee, let USA look after their US Dollars. We do not encourage other countries to interfere with our matters. We have our tea, coconut and rubber to look after us. Who planted and cultivated Tea, (rubber and coconut) in Sri Lanka.

    Dee Friday, 23 November 2018 04:43 PM

    The list goes on. And we still think tea is a ingenious herb and saree is Sri Lankans traditional. So funny.

    LOVERLY BUNCH OF COCONUTS Friday, 23 November 2018 05:07 PM

    " tea, coconut and rubber " If tea and rubber were not introduced by the british - we will of course have are loverly bunch of coconuts - and all of us will be coconut pluckers. !

    Coco nutty Friday, 23 November 2018 06:30 PM

    And the coconut pluckers came from Keerala. The tea pluckers from Tamilnadu. But the question remains: where are all the others from and what were they plucking?

    nsathees Friday, 23 November 2018 03:23 PM

    soon it will be 200/= per dollar

    ANTON Friday, 23 November 2018 03:32 PM

    I AM GOING TO HEAT AND MELT ONE RUPEE COINS AND FORM LITTLE ORNAMENTS AND SELL AT ONE DOLOR EACH. (THEN 01 RS = 01 DOLOR)

    Cicero Saturday, 24 November 2018 06:50 PM

    Sound plan. Make pop culture ornaments and put it on eBay.

    Inflation is... Friday, 23 November 2018 03:46 PM

    I had to buy the bamboo cane every fortnight for 25 cents in Jaffna 1975 or so. And in 2003, MR was the President, I saw that product tagged with 25 Rupees! And 2014/15 it was 35 rupees. What is the prize now? Check it and you will understand inflation of the LKR. But the most irritated thing that these bamboo canes are still openly displayed and sold.

    Dee Friday, 23 November 2018 04:45 PM

    The son of the guy responsible for this downfall keeps tweeting several times a day. He doesn't have any work to do as a newly appointed MMC of Kotte.

    Kindcitizen Friday, 23 November 2018 04:49 PM

    I feel sorry for every child who lookfoward for their future. Next thing expected brain drain where educated will leave the country. Sl, fear god and think about fThe future generations to come. So take drastic actios at the interest of the country. May god bless all of us.

    Sam Friday, 23 November 2018 07:06 PM

    Have to burn all these politicians alive for ruining the country for there own comfort.

    Don Friday, 23 November 2018 07:37 PM

    Wait till December US federal Reserve is going to increase the interest rate again.

    K Chokshanadan Friday, 23 November 2018 08:33 PM

    I don't think the rupee has depriciated as the Hon Bandula has not mentioned this.

    sss Friday, 23 November 2018 08:41 PM

    so much dollar demnad for importaion of goods needed by our high rupee earning (and educated free of charge) professionals who do not bring even a dollar into the country.

    Tinkiriya Friday, 23 November 2018 11:04 PM

    Please allow the Rupee to depreciate further against the US dollar because our bribed politicians can maximize their profit. .
