    Just survival in the jobs from top to down. More floods and more droughts and similar problems both manmade and natural as a result of all these irrational things in the government.
    How can we expect knowledge from a Grama Sevaka Niladhari to manage big things in the country?


  3. Ranil looking for scape goats once again.
