    Perhaps a good start will be to scale back free tertiary education significantly and save costs. Scale back the administration staff and related costs too. That way we will have more money to perhaps do some of what they are yelling for. As a side benefit, we will have fewer people shouting and protesting on the street.

    In the last couple of years there've been unpresedent amount of protests held in Colombo, and the leaders have become accustomed to these protests!! People should try something else!!
