how does spending money on sporting extravaganza's equal development? Especially when the money is all borrowed? And who will pay the final bill, with all the interest?

Thousands of people have nothing to eat,or eat Rice and Salt.
They are in debt.,borrow money from loan sharks eg.A woman who borrowed Rs. 6000 is paying Rs.3600 every month as interest This is a true story. Please open your eyes politicians People are dirt poor Media is silent Shame on you.

We don't want Games . Give us food to eat,
Poor people are in debt.How come no body cares?
This is disgraceful

From the comments here it is obvious to any outsider that Sri Lankan's have not national pride at all. No love or loyalty to the country of birth. This should be a joyous occasion, countries spend a lot of money to get these sports events to their countries but it appears that our ' bath gotas ' are more worried about eating than international sports events. If this is the attitude, then we would never develop as a country.

We are poor ,We are in debt. we pawn all our jewellery to buy food.. No reporter want ti investigate
WE are sick of you talking about games.

Well said Bro...It's not about pride. Just showing hatred to govt. When some ppl hate the govt, they hate all the thing the govt do. Is this SL culture??
