    Hon. Minister, now itself almost 75% of the SriLankan population have become blind, after electing your Govt. that is enough.... and enough.

    The way it is going in Srilanka, by the end of this year, almost everyone will lose their eye sight due to lack of proper food.

    we should have permanent screening in airport like Singapore.

    Sad that even when the government does a good thing, the people in this country (and some of those who commented already) have nothing to do other than complain about that as well. Grow up.
