    Just in time, SL elected this President. If RW and his gvt were here at this time, SL will be a disaster.

    It is true what Sesath says. Further we must thank Election Commissioner too for postponing the election and leting the government to fully concentrate on this epedemic.

    Sri Lanka should be great full to have present President and Prime minister in power just at the right time. If the previous regime was in power, it could have been a carnage. Places like Australia, only now deploying their troupes to humanitarian assistance. we did from day one. Our solders are the best in the world. Proud to be a Sri Lankan .

    Sri Lanka couldn't have hoped for a better President to lead us at this point.

    Very true. Military discipline saved us from going the way of Singapore or UAE.
