  1. None of the cabinet ministers is aware of the ones who drafted the amendments to the 19th A in 20A . What a sad set up this is . It appears that the Blind is leading the very Blind

    • The people have given the mandate to the current government, let the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to take responsibility. If he fails then the people will remove him.
      You are a loser, you have failed utterly and lost the election. The people have rejected you. Now you have become a keyboard warrior to confuse and fear mongering the public to safeguard your own political agenda. However, you will not succeed, the Rajapaksas are resilient enough to withstand your propaganda.
      Tell me what have you achieved by sharing the power between 2015 and 2019? Have you made a good decision to develop the country? You have sold Hambantota port while having checks and balances. Have you stopped a terrorist attack? What’s a point of checks and balances, if that process won’t let you to take decisions promptly to protect the local people and tourists?
