    Wonder if this 'preacher' is a disciple of M. Sirisena, who also uttered fantasy dreams. All words, no action. Let's go along in this mode for the next four years.

    See who is talking about dignity, even an MP does not have dignity

    Dear President, before you educate our younger generation please educate all your MPs, Ministers and your buddies about their behaviours inside and outside parliament. Lately I have seen your MPs behaviour in Parliament which is very frustrating.
