    Another Sri Lankan First !! We can now measure the price of fuel not in Rupees or Dollars but by the number of dead it takes to get a litre Thank you Rajapakse Family for paving the way to this historic achievement.!! May all the strings from temples near and far which are tied onto and around your bodies, keep you safe !!

    What a sad situation in this country. But we have a strong military background President with all his lieutenants in charge most of the civil administrative govt organisation who are specialised in attacking and killing the opponents. So these 4 deaths are nothing for them. But the poor country men are paying for their past sins committed.

    Some people have to reduce or stop medicine due to financial difficulties. Only media reports the incidents happened in queues. But more people could have died in homes without medicines.
