    AFF Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:07 AM

    That fellow is the biggest hypocrite!

    Voice Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:08 AM

    instead of arguing online... why dont you guys do something about it ?

    Lordbudhasl Thursday, 11 November 2010 04:14 AM

    Oh! Lord Budha!

    Kari Thursday, 11 November 2010 04:16 AM

    Congrathulations JHU!!!!

    sadoo Thursday, 11 November 2010 04:45 AM

    Good Move, Better to be in the Casio than being at home.

    Like Ceylinco Big or Small we win at Casino Invest in Golden Key and Loose.

    Wasantha Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:38 PM

    Very good move. Amendments would allow the monks to play casino. It is better than being in the parliament and misleading the general public.

    Next amend the motor transport bill to be enabled the monks to get the driving licence. They can accelerate the journey to
    "'DHARMA RAJYA".

    Dinesh Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:10 AM

    What was the amendment made to the act?

    sujeewa Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:49 PM

    all budhists monks are not in JHU.Ape loku hamuduruwo iwasa wadaranawa.

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:49 PM

    All gaming regulatory decisions must reflect these public policy mandates.

    Dice Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:15 AM

    Wasantha, you are a genius. You have come up with a gem and all true!

    chandanafe Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:05 PM

    U should not insult the monks eventhough few of them misleading the general public. Mojority desreve the respect

    Asoka Karunaratne Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:11 PM

    JHU has not done anything to eradicate smoking and boozing from the country. now they are promoting gambling. is this the dharma rajya they pledged to create

    Cobra Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:21 AM

    All the kings men in general and the JHU in particular should hang their heads in shame for voting favorably on this bill.The nincompoops!

    Milinda Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:15 PM

    Good good JVP and UNP have another topic.

    Kundu mali Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:51 PM

    More poor fellows will gamble and the rich owner will get fat.

    unl Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:30 AM

    Magodis Baappa Thursday, 11 November 2010 10:16 AM

    Sami Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:42 AM

    This is to give hand for those who supported for politicians in the campaign.

    MagodisThuma Wednesday, 10 November 2010 03:44 PM

    Bluff Bluff Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:48 AM

    Did JHU also vote for it? I doubt!

    HIDEOUT Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:07 PM

    gotapakaya Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:08 PM

    JD Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:12 PM

    awsome mann.. country's going crazyyy.. vibrant city in asia

    Phillip Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:57 AM

    Grow up guys .Casinos were there for a long time.Why not legalise it and let the country earn some money and those who can afford it enjoy it . If you have a moral issue about it don't go in there . What about lotteries and betting centers where all the poor folks put in their money.We have had it for decades ! Whats the fuss !! its been happening for a long time .
    Hope they legalise prostitution too ! It has been happening too for a very long time !!

    kamal Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:12 PM

    Agreed with wasantha 100% .GOOD LUCK jhu, don't mislead the people .pls pls pls

    Wara Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:18 PM

    Suba Anagathayak.......

    bash Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:25 PM

    kevin Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:42 PM

    if your GOD existed these things would have never happened. lol.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:12 AM

    Some people are certainly going to be richer than they already are. Wont be surprised if they say 'No Sri Lankans Allowed In' on the door.

    amal Wednesday, 10 November 2010 05:39 PM

    what a tosser. lol.

    anura Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:26 AM

    Strictly "No entry" for local sri lankans

    suwantha Wednesday, 10 November 2010 06:47 PM

    good move now we can gamble freely.it is a great a advantage to poor people to become rich.i think it is mentioned in mahinda chintanaya also .good luck srilankans.

    Kaush Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:07 PM

    Crying coz ur favourite party is not presenting the bill??

    victoria Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:50 AM

    Next bill will " BROTHEL HOUSE BILL"

    Muditha Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:52 AM

    The word you're looking for is IMMATURE.. Thailand has one of the worst crime rates in the country and prostitution is sky high in Bangkok... Children are kidnapped and sold for the sex trade in Thailand and they have no way to stop it... Rich get richer while the common man suffers even more... There's informed development and then there's blind development... get your facts straight..

    perera Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:16 PM

    so how did the JHU VOTE THEN. DID PATALIYA VOTE AGAINST OR DID HE CONVENIENTLY BECOME BUSY

    Jmishra Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:38 PM

    Is SLMC supported the bill? What a shame if it is so.

    Saliya Wickremasuriy Thursday, 11 November 2010 12:59 AM

    Wasantha's is not a response but a reaction. "Very good move" is contradictory with the rest of the opinion.

    raymond Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:03 AM

    ......congratulations on passing the Casino Bill. Let's have wine, women and song too!!!!

    Smart Aleck Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:12 AM

    The Mihin Man will be appointed the Minister for Casinos at the coming Cabinet reshuffle .

    victor Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:21 AM

    Another example of government hypocrisy. Expand gambling and other bad things associated with gambling. Block websites carrying naughty pictures of girls.

    Man B Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:40 AM

    Wasantha you are true, where our Cultural monks?

    MetalHead Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:44 AM

    well said. lol. or 'Niwana'

    Democract Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:18 AM

    Lets hope the JHU will nor get into the Casino business.

    Percy Mandawala Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:57 AM

    What happened to JHU objections? Shameless bunch of crooks.

    Prof Wickramatillake Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:58 AM

    Great stuff MR, though not in your Chinthanaya. Next night clubs and legal brothel houses in the planned Colombo Mega City?

    zulu Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:03 AM

    LET THE DICE ROLL BABE................

    pissu balla Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:07 AM

    Excellent! Now we need a red light street in Colombo.

    Hasiya Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:25 AM

    Well done!

    asoka abeywardena Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:13 AM

    It will be a very good move if the benefits are taken to develop the country, instead of develop only certain families...

    Arun Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:15 AM

    good move!!!!

    tamilan Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:49 AM

    don't know where its going to be end....

    Space Cab Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:36 AM

    Is that so??? what were they doing till the bill was passed??? they all the same

    nihal Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:50 AM

    why not prostitution or getting married for special type of monks???

    nova Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:57 AM

    country is going to hell..

    Democract Thursday, 11 November 2010 03:00 AM

    I wounder whether the JHU voted for this Bill.If so they are real hypocrites.What was the Minister Champika's stand?

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:45 AM

    What is wrong with a monk having to drive a car. They do it in other countries. You may not be a buddhist but the monks do sacrifice their lives, have some respect.

    suudu_anthuwa Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:00 AM

    wow .. president my hero... its time to change ambude to dennim boyzzz..

    Smart Aleck Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:06 AM

    Most of them are not real monks but merely Men in Robes.
