    Good to see smiles all around - that's the spirit. Now you two, get on with it like adults.

    What the ministry of provincial councils do? Mediation board for the prov. councils.

    Saman, don't talk like a fool. Do you think that other people are scared of you or your idiotic ideas. Write like a civilised man . The space is given to you to write something civilised. Not to show your donkey mentality.

    I see some sort of unity in diversity. If the leaders will act in the best interest of nation, we can have a peaceful and prosperous Sri-Lanka.

    RamUK Thursday, 17 October 2013 07:53 AM

    what sort of environment you were brought up. least manners and more hatred....unbelievable....

    sinhala modaya Thursday, 17 October 2013 07:20 AM

    So he too wants more power just like the rest in the south. Soon people will be forgotten, perks of the job will over take just like the others did in the past

    jana Thursday, 17 October 2013 07:06 AM

    I'm all for giving the powers to the provinces but wasn't this TNA joker, Mr. M. A. Sumanthiran, say that we violated the basic foundation of the commonwealth, so why in the world is here meeting the head of that country... but on a positive note i do hope the Chief Minister will root out the extremist and set an example for the rest of the country on true governance...

    How would be the fight for Ministerial port folio if North and East are merged ??
