    If his intention was only to visit the Holy Land and worship there, he could have easily done the trip just like the other Christians do by paying from their own pocket but not at public expense The UNP which finds fault with the many overseas trips of the President with large entourages on public account, has itself fallen into the trap.

    Not only the politicians of the country the UNP is a disgrace to politics. Summon him(John) and the leadership council should sack him from the party.

    investigator Saturday, 11 January 2014 01:38 PM

    he allready crossed half.

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Saturday, 11 January 2014 01:50 PM

    citizen Saturday, 11 January 2014 03:05 PM
