Jayarathne, North Central Province Governor Sarath Ekanayake, and governors, chief ministers of provinces and government officers s and youth representatives oung were present in this event.
Don’t these MP;s have anything better to do other than attending the opening ceremonies of little things like these,
This National Career Guidance network centre will be an empty shell after the King and his followers depart.
First of all, what is this stupid center supposed to do?
The Politicians and the King will go anywhere; they enjoy high life, Ranjith including top wages, luxury vehicles, pivate secretaries, jobs for the family, Government cars to take the pretty wives to Supermarkets and to the Spa/Massage, and children to school.
Now, this trip to Pollonnaruwa, at least 5 Air Force helicopters must have been used to carry the the King and his supporters from Colombo to Pollonnaruwa at tax payer expense.
Ranjith, if someone organises an ‘Arab Spring’ in SL, I will join, my dear friend.
Where are the youths in this photos ?? most of them are more than age 60+ or 40+
Mr Fiery Fernando . You are absolutely right about everything you said about using Army and Navy vehicles for privet use. I like to organises a party that one and only promise and give a genuine unbiased justice system and nothing else like food subsidies to the people. They MP’s should not get more than Rs 30,000 a month and should travel by public transport and use public facilities like hospitals. The education system “cram the book and pass the ” is not fit for the purpose. There are no laws and regulations. So it want be easy. But we cannot see this beautiful country go down the drain. What we want is a leader who really like this country and who does not put his personal and private interest that before the country.
