    It's Ramadan Sunday and for the last so many hours we have no electricity. Even last afternoon we encountered a long powercut. Electricity Breakdown isnt answering their phones. Dear Minister over to you...- Kohuwala

    Well I'm dehiwela the power is not there, it's Sunday and I no one from ceb is answering the phone when we call the breakdown number.. This was the case on Easter day n seems the same on Another festive day..

    Let us all Muslims Graciously accept the Kind Gesture given by the Minister !! The only way we can reciprocate is to ensure we conserve power on this Day

    We may get the electricity supply only during the festival future... on god save the people of Sri Lanka from darkness.

    Even if there is no electricity we can manage in the dark because after our death we will be laid down in the grave where there will be no electricity.

    Thanks for your initiative....we as Muslims thank you a lot...Still it would be very happy news for everyone in SL

    This should be corrected as "In view of less demand of electricity due to closure of factories, offices and shops, there will be no power cuts on Sunday.".

    After Sunday ?

    ceylon Friday, 17 August 2012 04:09 PM

    Lets have Ramadan everyday.

    Hats off for the decision Mr. Minister.But this doesn't happen everywhere in the country.

    sujith Friday, 17 August 2012 02:21 PM

    So that means without Norahcolai, still CEB can supply electricity for whole country. Very interesting.

    Super Shot Friday, 17 August 2012 02:20 PM

    Well done Champika...we are a country that belongs to all people born in Sri Lanka !! This is good.. !
