2 August 2013 05:12 pm - 30     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Public Relations Minister Mervyn Silva charged yesterday that politicians in the Gampaha District had failed in their duty in resolving the crisis that had erupted regarding the contamination of drinking water.

“ I’m not afraid to say this, if the politicians had taken necessary steps to prevent this at the right time or had listened to what I said these deaths or injuries could have been averted,” he said.

“I might be charge sheeted for making this statement but I am ready to answer them,” he said.

    There's wheels within wheels in the Government. There are many jokers in charge of the country. DIG clearly said he did not want STF in Weliveriya. How sent them to genoside people. This is not a military state.

    This is another clear instance of foreign interference in our internal affairs. The Indian hindu and zionist nexus is trying to destablize the country. We hope that Sri Lankans will not get fooled into supporting this protest which has clearly got the blessings of hindu zionist external bodies.

    Can you please at least distribute "Kudu" among people struggling without water along with some "bullet" treatment just like they did a couple of days ago. This seems compatible with Chinthana's "mathata thitha" and "miracle of Asia" projects.

    Samantha Friday, 02 August 2013 05:46 PM

    so he's from the district of uranus?

    JD Friday, 02 August 2013 05:35 PM
