    Ranasinghe! May be this subject comes under purview of some other ministry? The portfolios are so mixed up, you cannot keep track of them.

    This emergency number 119 should be looked at. Last sunday I tried for about 45 minutes to call, it was always busy. I tried it about 20 times. After that I gave up. If you call the Police station they refer you to call 119. It seems they don't want to be disturbed.
