President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has instructed the Foreign Relations Ministry to get back all Sri Lankan students in Wuhan, China as soon as the Chinese authorities lift the travel restrictions to the province. The President's Office said there were 30 students in Wuhan and the Ministry was instructed to get the assistance of the Sri Lankan Embassy in Beijing, Consulate office in Hubei and Srilankan Airlines to get the students back. It said the cost of the operation will be borne by the government. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Why? To spread the disease here?

    Why? Does he think our doctors and scientists are better than the Chinese ones?

    This is the difference between Rajapaksas and the UNP Politicians.

    The Great Dictator has no power to order the return of the students. They are free people of a democratic country who can decide for themselves what to do. Gota can make a recommendation, that's all.

    Why do the president have to get involved in SL to get anything done? The so called common sensed institutions not working well? Crazy land

    Ups Sunday, 26 January 2020 10:12 AM

    Another good move by Prez

    I get sick when i see the comments of some people who have commented. I am just puzzled whether they are Sri Lankans? Don't they have Children? Some of them have not even read the article properly. This is a situation where all Sri Lankans must come forward to get these Children back, because they are stuck in about two cities in China and traumatised, as those cities are under lock down to prevent spread of the Disease. Do not bring petty politics at a time like this. There is no harm in Public money spent on this and that what Public money is meant for.The President has taken the right decision and the whole country should back that. Leave your political differences a side please, for a moment.
