How many in the SL President’s entourage?
Perhaps, more than 100, residing in the most upmarket hotel in NY!! Great News! The President’s UN speech is not shown in local TV. Do you know why? The audience will be EMPTY!
The Presidents of France and Canada travel overseas with nothing but an IPad and an IPhone to be communicating with their country. No entourage !
Former President José Alberto Mujica of Uruguay went to NY or UN Sessions and stayed in a backpacker hotel and walked to the UN Building !!
I am interested in knowing the numbers and who was in the entourage?
What he going to talk about? How to grow paddy?
He gonna talk about the latest book in town, “Janadhipathi Appatchchi” by Chathurika !!!!!
It should be “jana******hi mee haraka”
The entire first family in New York at taxpayer expense !!!
Bro. Ranjith. Of course not about Paddy because after storing Paddy in Mattala Air Port now we are importing Rice! May be about constructing 5 Star hotels! Destruction of Bio Diversity of SL (willpattu for e.g.), how to protect mega-culprits of Bond Scans! BTW, pl do not blame Ms. Chathurika because she paid her way to UN HQ in NY by collecting money from her book!
He will be talking about “yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya””yaha palanaya” on and on.
