    It seems that the country is paralysed with a paralysed leader.

    Dee Friday, 03 December 2021 12:22 PM

    Let's not get 'Panicked'! All is well!

    Premalal Perera Friday, 03 December 2021 12:24 PM

    Here we go. Is this what the CEB engineers hinted that would happen?

    Kikazaru Friday, 03 December 2021 12:29 PM

    No gas, no electricity and next will be water and an abundance of shit.

    MegaWatt Friday, 03 December 2021 12:34 PM

    A transmission failure? The turn the breaker on! Usually if a high capacity transmission line trips, the power plants too trip. How is the weather at Norochcholai and Kerawalapitiya?

    Patriot Friday, 03 December 2021 12:34 PM

    No gas, no electricity, no water. Is it Sri Lanka in today's modern world?

    XXX Friday, 03 December 2021 12:47 PM

    Idiots!!! This is the second time in the past two years. There is no management in this Country. Where the F is the security for Sri Lankans.

    N.M. Perera Friday, 03 December 2021 12:48 PM

    Grace Friday, 03 December 2021 01:32 PM

    People should be ready to go back to the old way of life. Water from wells. Kerosene lamps, komudu and bullock carts.

    Vajira Jayasinghe Friday, 03 December 2021 01:33 PM

    Evil trade unionists should be banished from the country.

    Dee Friday, 03 December 2021 01:43 PM

    SAR! Can't we get the military to run the power? Or are they busy digging gold?

    Fiona Margaret Friday, 03 December 2021 01:50 PM

    And yet you all keep silent!

    Priyantha77 Friday, 03 December 2021 01:56 PM
