    We know you are not so serious with your statement, coz if you didn't issue that you will fall prey to the wrath of your boss!

    Minister Tuesday, 21 May 2013 05:06 AM

    Good advice John. All of them will follow your advice if you can reduce the electricity bill. That is the only thing they are asking. By the way how much do you pay as your electricity bill?

    The working class of the country has the fullest confidence in the President and the government and they will not contribute to any act which will cause disruption to the country’s development.

    Stand in front of a mirror and say " Don't fall prey". Then you will get the message on condition that you are not a pinhead.

    Aren't we already the government's prey that they do with us whatever they want????

    Thushara Tuesday, 21 May 2013 03:15 AM

    I feel sorry about this comment. Citizens who see and expect the justice with Law and Order expect a drastic change in the system in Sri Lanka, to live in peace and humans.

    CIA is behind all of these commotions. They waiting for a chance to pounce once country become anarchic. This is what they did in Iraq, Libya, Egypt and now in Syria. US and their allies do not like any country in peace. They want to see bombs, killing spree, divisions, infighting for them to intervene. That's their modus operand. Since the peace arrive in the country, they brought resolution and after resolution in UN for this purpose and only purpose trying to achieve..

    OMG Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:48 AM

    This has nothing to do with politics.

    This is struggle for hand to mouth survival.

    We have all fallen prey any way due to the actions of the Government.

    dear john, if we don't strike, will you reduce electricity tariffs?? via DM Android App

    hb Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:41 AM

    None of these problems would happen.

    Fayad Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:35 AM

    Every body has fallen prey for 60% increase & 20% discount of light bill.

    Thomas RangerThomas Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:34 AM

    Why are you people so scared of these things happening, because your Government has failed to 'deliver the goods', that's why. Maybe the President has forgotten the Lipton Circus agitations with hi in the lead in the past.

    Upali Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:12 AM

    Yes, Sir, we have already fallen prey to your boss and the clan. Now there is nothing much left in our bodies to fall prey to anyone else.

    Had Enough Tuesday, 21 May 2013 02:02 AM
