    Finally there is action to arrest the spread. While no one likes a curfew, this is a necessary evil if we all out to come out alive from the other side of this deadly 3rd wave!

    Doctors were requesting these restrictions for some time. When the Military is handling health issues they cannot understand the requests made by the Doctors. Now we all suffer

    It’s simply targeting Ramlan. Same thing was done during Hindu festival devali in October. These decisions here is always targeting minorities True peace loving sri Lankan
