    • The Sri Lankan leaders are not wise enough to be with a powerful country to move forward. Sri Lanka was the second developed country in Asia before independence. It has fallen from grace when it decided to go behind India. The west has been dividing and conquering Sri Lanka since it has kicked out the British to go behind India.

      Professor G.L Peiris said that connectivity with India is of the utmost importance in the context of Sri Lanka’s foreign policy. India created Tamil armed groups to divide and conquer Sri Lanka. This is why Sri Lankan leaders are scared about India. Until China does the same Sri Lankan leaders will not make the right decision. China has been wasting money on infrastructure projects in Sri Lanka instead of dividing and conquering it as India did.

    These fools living on loans and the cost of living is high rocketing but they call themselves as Professors :—)))))

    The country is going backward since this fools took over. The Rajapaksas made the tea exports to fall 50%. Unfortunately, educated fools who call themselves ‘professors’ have no idea what have been going on since independence. They are insulting education and knowledge. I cannot wait to see them getting in a line to feed themselves because of food shortages and Easwaran Rutnam on fire interviewing them :—-)))
