  1. Does Sri Lanka has any economic recovery plan or loans is the only solution :—))

    If I am the President, I will make sure that everyone works. I will force everyone to work. Currently, everyone goes to temples and churches, but half of the population do nothing. The rest of majority fake others and do little as possible at work, especially the government servants. Only 10% of the population work hard.
