    Illegal liquor, now illegal cigarette factory. Next ? Marijuana Cocaine or Heroine factory?. Nothing to surprise. That gives us the "Suba Anagathayak"

    Who can now complain that the Sri Lankan people are not an industrious nation, we now export cars top Nepal, Kassippu & beedi to the villagers, who why not cigarettes; don't we boast of an "open market." Or is it simply that the stiff competion with the Ceylon Tobacco company and the State Distilleries Corp; is hurting those who run it.

    Why do most of the participants in this forum quickly blame everything on "Suba Anagathayak" ? Why.. do u guys think that if UNP come to power Sri Lanka will be perfect is it?

    It does not mean that we will have "Suba Anagathayak", but for surely better than what we have now.

    This is what happens and will happen as long as excessive taxes are applied to products many people don't like and many people do like. Leave the taxes at a reasonable level and then you will find the crooks and the smugglers and the greedy people will not branch out on their own into these areas.
