    Spent to rehabilitate people who were left helpless by Tamil diaspora and LTTE.

    Modawansa Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:54 AM

    The balance 75% goes in to the pocket of politico's????

    Modawansa Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:57 AM

    An uneducated politico will not understand this basic.

    Ryan Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:59 AM

    Minister is talking about capital expenditure, not recurrent expenditure. We need to make Economics a compulsory subject in O/L.
    Anyway N&E should get 50% of CE 25% not enough.

    Thindu Valanthan Wednesday, 24 November 2010 10:27 PM

    very true

    TomSamUSa Thursday, 25 November 2010 12:51 AM

    Why not give autonomy to Tamil homeland.They could take care of themselves without your dole out minus the kick backs.

    ampare son Thursday, 25 November 2010 12:59 AM

    chris abey Wednesday, 24 November 2010 10:19 AM

    Minister must go back to learning simple Maths then.

    Musthafa Wednesday, 24 November 2010 10:20 AM

    for last 30 years Goverment did not spend any thing in North and east, now you must spend 50% in north east to cover the past 30 years .

    oothai sethu Thursday, 25 November 2010 03:52 AM

    You are correct

    PWC Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:00 AM

    You are really modawansa. If then, no money for other provinces ??

    Modawansa Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:22 AM

    You are inteligent..you understood the basics.With people like you being around the country will progress very fast.

    Powerless Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:23 AM

    What is allocated does not matter. How much will be really spent on the needy project is the question?

    Truth Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:24 AM

    Well said Musthafa. And also don't forget how much you have spend for destruction.

    Modawansa Thursday, 25 November 2010 04:34 AM

    What a great analysis.For your extensive knowledge for analysis ,you should be immediately promoted as a senior minister and be placed in charge of elimination of discrimination.

    god bless this country.

    saman Wednesday, 24 November 2010 02:32 PM

    5% is salary increase ... easy maths. No wonder our MP's does not require education. and education of country is run by tuition master who use to talk filth in class.

    Ranjit Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:16 AM

    What is the big deal, N & E is part of SL? Areawise, N&E is more than 25%.

    Sri Lankan Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:21 AM

    These communal minded people will never grow, they want problems in the country for their own benefit, just look at him, the picture can say a lot.

    Dilip Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:27 AM

    It is all in papers for N& E, the people are suffering for basic needs. There in only Military Bases.

    What is the population in Hambonthota and how come there is a Massive Harbor and another project going on for an International airport,etc...etc....

    Hisham Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:29 AM

    Do they get the 2500/= as promised or same as the rest of us?
    Is this a big joke on the people of this country, promising 2500/- across the board and now telling fairy tales why it could not be done?

    meda wakka Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:31 AM

    How much allocated to Hambantota and what is population there.

    Nath Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:33 AM

    Is he criticizing the budget?

    Pissa Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:36 AM

    How much money will allocate to your undergroud friends (who will work on these contracts from south).

    Modaya Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:45 AM

    Short sighted fellow

    Smart Aleck Thursday, 25 November 2010 10:02 AM
