    Needless drama by authorities Friday, 29 December 2023 01:01 PM

    These complaints about dangers of everything and anything is authorities trying to show their worth. Cut the over-sized workforce of the CMC, instead of giving attention to the garbage media releases by the CMC.

    Two deaths in Kandy and Gampaha but the warning is Colombo city. Colombo city folks lives are more valuable, or what?

    Colombo is heart of economy Friday, 29 December 2023 03:22 PM

    If Colombo falls then rest of the nation will not get imported products. Safeguarding the core of the economy is vital. Galle and Kandy are not important for countries development.

    @colombo is heart of economy, you make a good point. But are Galle and Kandy not major hubs in Sri Lankan tourism which is driving the economy? Don't workers (the heartbeat of Colombo) travel from those districts?
