Dear Vimal Sahodaraya,
Simple arithmetic indicates that it will take 16.5 years to complete your project of 1 million houses for the common masses at the rate of 60000 houses per annum. Even at the rate of 100000 houses per annum it will take 10 years. I do not want to throw a wet blanket on your project but I think even 100000 houses a year is too slow. By 10 years the population size would have also increased to ?25 million +. So, don’t you think 200,000 houses per annum is a better solution to alleviate the need of housing for the ordinary masses, especially the poor who live in shanty dwellings? This would be then genuine progress to lift the quality of life of the ordinary masses along with per capita increase in income, in the economic revolution along Mahinda Chintanaya, to make SL the envy of SE Asia.
Anyway official song and a logo is already created… not necessary to build houses.. WTF….
Ha s anyone given any thought to where the money is coming from for this grandiose venture? Where are the locations and who is eligible?
We have had many grandiose initiatives in the past 62 years. Thondaman was a leader in poverty eradication in the tea estate community. Finally, Thodaman died a billionaire but the tea estate community continue to live in “lines”. The next generation of Thondaman is also “focussing” on poverty eradication whilst leading a “fast car” lifestyle.
Egypt and Tunisia are recent examples of people’s revolutions which toppled cheats from their pedestals. The triple M (MMM – Million Man March) methodology adopted by the poulace is based on gandhian principles. Unfortunately in SL, all forms of leadership other than the coterie in power, are either ineffective or has been suppressed, intimidated, incarcerated etc, etc.
As a result, Sri Lankans will have more grandiose initiatives thrown at them with song and fanfare, in future, promising plenty and delivering nothing.

WW was the most intelligent among the JVP those days. He quickly de-camped when he saw the wrong direction the JVP was heading under the gonnu kattalyak, led by the biggest gonna/buruva Somavansa. WW formed his own party NFF. He is doing well now. Because of the lack of funds he cannot build a million houses soon enough, even though he has the desire to do so. It will take 20 years perhaps. WW has a silver tongue of a great orator. People love to hear him speek at public meetings. The JVP has lost the tongue of their bell. Their bell is now silent. Ony the donkeys in the party are braying.
