State Minister Nimal Lanza has criticized concerns raised by environmentalists stating that some ‘mad women’ would not make the government alter the original plan of the Central Expressway.

Addressing an event, Lanza said some Rs. 88 billion would have to be spent and some 100’s of trees would have to be cut down if the original plan was altered.

“We will not work as some mad women want. They are partial to some political parties. People want the work on the Central Expressway completed soon.” he said.

    Yes the government will not listen to its own people on issues concern to the country. They will take orders from Chinese no matter what it destroy the country. The minister should be ashamed for insulting it's own citizen.

    This piece of garbage is a moron of the first order. Shame on the party seniors who allow him to insult and denigrate ladies whose only crime is that they love their country.

    Shows the quality of this fellow...being a people's servant, he should first learn to explain his reasons in a respectable manner without barking like a mad dog. Who in his right mind made this fellow a state minister?
