    If you write Political Jokes on Sri Lanka , It will be a best seller. But who will buy them will be the big question.

    Rajani Monday, 22 April 2013 09:58 AM

    We are not fool to believe it. We can expect another increase in January after a break down of coal power plant.

    Mohamed Hafsal Monday, 22 April 2013 04:37 PM

    They found the oil well but it was empty

    Hettiarachchi Monday, 22 April 2013 10:00 AM

    You do not have to wait till the Sampur plant is built to reduce electricity prices. Reduce the Cabinet to 25 members, take action against high level corruption, remove corrupt and over-age officials from their officers, stop useless activities like Deyata Kirula, limit foreign travels of ministers and others to the minimum required, etc. There will be enough and more money left to cover the losses of CEB.

    gayan Monday, 22 April 2013 09:58 AM

    may come or may not come....LOL

    Premalal Monday, 22 April 2013 01:10 PM

    Once done it will start generating profits like Telecom
    without doing that how on earth one can put CEB
    burden on innocent public

    I can remember, when there were protests for the construction of Norochcolai Power plan, Govt. then Minister told the media that if Norochcolai Plant start operation we can give current at Rs.2.00(Two only) per unit. What happened to his promise. What is happening now.
