    We will be happy to know who is in the directors board.

    How about using this facility for Ministers who have endless problems in finding accommodation in Colombo. After all ministers need some decent accommodation in Colombo to perform their jobs efficiently . Good move our govt

    Was it because of disagreement on deal? I think the problem is the percentage cut!!!
