No they will not. If that would happen, then Sri Lanka would be similar to North Korea.

Why couldn't all this money wasted on this Thamasha have been given to the school children who lost all their books and clothes during the recent Floods? Fowzie, where is your rhetoric?

Funny! Now come down and join the crowd. As principal, I will give you canteen duty for you to keep the kids in queue and to prevent them from eating anything deemed deleterious to their health and moral up-bringing.
