    Dont the public servants need an extra day to launch the protests called for by the President himself.

    Kumara are you a Govt Employee. Even it is a working day when we go to Govt offices we are pushed from table to table. So if holiday or no holiday it will be the same.

    These lazy bum sucking government servants are another menace for this country. What additional holiday for those fellows.

    If a holiday falls on a Sunday, that is a holiday and why give another day in lieu. Funny system in Sri Lanka.
