Do they really have to shave their heads? they aren't getting ordained, right?

11 days? The Power and Energy Ministry will be without the Minister for 11 days. I hope there are reliable people to run the MInistry while the Hon. Minister is away contemplating on the various solutions to the power and energy issues the country faces.

Now Wimal seems to be beaten. If this is a private and personal thing done according to their conscience, then why do they allow publicity - cheap politics to mislead the gullible public.
