    How many can travel in that bus? Was it road worthy? Over to all ministries concerned

    Punish the person in-charge for organizing the trip at a time when a bad weather condition and earth slips are prevailing in upcountry, especially in Nuwaraeliya District.

    Not enough, the parliment requires at least 76 children to get killed in one shot before they can take action and bring in new rules, otherwise the MP's and the President are too busy spending our public money.
