  1. Two years on power after accusing Rajapaksa for wrong doing, but neglected the requests from people around the garbage mountain. What is the point shutting the mouths of Ministers? Truth cannot be hidden, by having a mask on Prime Ministers visit to the area. If he cannot go without a mask, think about people who lived there for two years after voting to appoint wrong government.
