A Good start. Only nine ministers. Where is Basil Rajapakse ?. Did he go back to USA ? The former Clerk of Mahaveli Board, would have been good to be the Minister of Infrastructure, where he would have carried his nickname, Mr Ten Percent.

we were very happy when gota became the president. we were generally happy when mahinda was made PM. However we were shocked when learnt that Johnston was given port and highways. These are the people who are likely to ruin the good name of gota.
