    That's where the country is headed - gone to the dogs and murderers set free while heroes are imprisoned in unhealthy surroundings & hospitalised.

    R Dias Bandaranaike Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:31 AM

    In a true united Sri Lanka we are about to witness the inauguration of office of a new President. It must be one hell of a party throughout this war ravaged nation. Amazing feat indeed. Mr President you have brought dignity and decency to this high office and more than that to our beloved mother Lanka

    Ravana Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:06 AM

    you have to distract the populace from a 500% increase in Sugar import duty and 300% on onions.

    What better way ? You see the whole of Colombo will be full of supporters of the Maha Raja.

    josh Wednesday, 17 November 2010 03:41 PM

    the best example in the world for wastage of public funds!!!

    there is probably no country in the world who would be celebrating so lavishly for an swearing in ceremony!!!!
