    Chintana 10 billion + likely war + collapse of stock market + western world shunning away = Collape of economy

    I am sure that he is trying to do what CBK did at the end of 2001- leave an empty tresury.

    In 2004, they tried to print more `rupees`. They will do that again.

    A quote from an economist:

    He has to choose between immediate political popularity and being an unpopular President by the end of his first term of office or much before. We hope the new budget would not put the government into pitfalls from which it would be difficult to extricate itself.

    Thanks

    Billions of rupees can be spent on developing the country and raising the standard of living of all people if the military budget was brought under control. Stop The War. Build the Country.

    Very same stupid Pundits who `calculated` this 10 billions story predicted a sure win for Ranil few weeks ago!!

    Poor sods!

    Cheers

    Ten billion Rs is nothing compared to what P.ranil promised in his/her manifesto...as pera once told it would even limit Sri Lanka in to the colombo city limits...with Mahinda Chinthana at least poor farmers and innocent children will be benefited...

    even after getting defeated P.ranil and his/her pathetic media continue to challenge MahindaR and his policies...it clearly shows the level of dissapointment and the level of frustration they are in...

    chao...

    What development? The stock market going down and the rupee value down the pallang? Wait and see if Mahinda doesnt offer a solution, we will have a backward development for sure. Chinthanaya will go for a six! morons!

    IN FACT IT IS 17 BILLION RUPEES.

    IT WILL BE GIVEN HOWEVER, IN THE FIRST YEAR.

    AFTER THE GENERAL ELECTIONS THE EXPENDITURE WILL BE CUT AND ECONOMIC REFORMS WILL TAKE PLACE.

    IF NOT FROM WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO GET MONEY? WE MUST HOWEVER UNDERSTAND THIS SITUATION AND BE PREPARED TO FACE HARSHIP FROM NEXT YEAR ONWARDS AND HELP THE PRESIDENT TO DEVELOP THE COUNTRY AND MAKE PEOPLE LESS DEPENDENT ON GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS.

    We Sri Lankans are a cursed lot.

    We are caught between goats on both ends:

    In the North & the South.

    Hi Mahinda, Go ahead with your chinthanaya. Finding money for that is easy if you can stop politicians getting underhand commissions and bribes from each and every task they do.

    Specially minister`s money transfered to foriegn countries should be traced by requesting UK government to release private fund details they hold.(now it is legal in UK to release those)
