    Why no investigation into former minister S M Chandrasena illegally cutting trees in the Hurulu Nature Reserve in Anuradhapura?

    I can see fruits even before planting the tree.

    rav Saturday, 21 February 2015 06:05 AM

    Guys - just relax and please think - do we need any beauties"/virgins" to come to our country paid in full by hard working tax payers money to be spend to plant trees in our own country? whoever organised these things should be thrown of out their jobs in government. And, I was reading some if not all the comments - u guys are just bunch of idiots...... Instead of sitting behind a keyboard making stupid comments - go and do something good.

    Dirty jokes by paranoids. Typical Sri Lankans

    How come Naveen is Honarable, is it only by board?A person becomes Honourable for what he does, not by just displaying a board.Shame on Sri Lankan politicians who boost their images in stupid ways.

    firo Friday, 20 February 2015 06:48 PM

    A green Sri Lanka in years to come..I always dreamed of this and thought why wr could not atleast plant trees. Better late than never and continue planting a process to be continued

    Perumal Friday, 20 February 2015 05:49 PM

    Sure he would have brought her down if she was crowned just before the elections!

    gillian Friday, 20 February 2015 05:04 PM

    Ironic how our country takes part in projects such as this, but manages to remove exiting trees and build hotels and other infrastructures in the middle of nature reserves
