    I suggest that they should be allowed to get married at the presence of close family. That way they can save their money as well.

    That means you can get the funeral parlor to do the cremation or burial also instead of people gathering around and bacteria spreading within 24 hours

    The mistake lies with your boss who always said he is not going to lockdown the country.

    ralph sharratt Friday, 30 April 2021 02:30 PM

    why wait 3 days if situation is as bad as the Army Commander says

    Shavendra should be withdrawn and his position must be given to a Medical person. Shavendra will fight a war but not a decease. All this is mishandling by the government with wrong decisions

    I presume politicians are exempt, like the one who had the wedding during the earlier restriction in kolluptitya

    What about the couple who have taken pre-approvals to have the function.

    vince Friday, 30 April 2021 06:20 PM

    postpone it. Are people so dumb that they cannot understand this simple concept called postponement?

    Please lock down for at least two weeks to prevent what is happening in India. This President is stubborn as a mule and always want to do things his way!

    Please advise wedding parties to have the function only with close family members. The invitees will be in trouble if one guest is positive. Some people want to have wedding functions with a large crowd without thinking about the consequences.

    SAR! Don't forget the grave mistake you did last October! Two weeks being open fully is NOT going to turn around this economy. Two weeks hard lockdown is neither going to do it any further harm!

    A VVIPs wedding is taking place on 2nd May...

    Lumbini Friday, 30 April 2021 06:15 PM

    You should have done this earlier, Mr.

    Vadivelu Yogaratnam Friday, 30 April 2021 08:40 PM

    Does this man runs on the Army or the government.

    Let's Elope Saturday, 01 May 2021 04:30 PM

    I would suggest that eloping is the best!
