    Printing more bank notes so that more will be in circulation is the preferred method of MR. It pays back.

    In the FT of London 100s of currencies and their performaces are given, nowhere Sri Lanka or its currecy rupee is mentioned, why? This is total discrimanation of this country. Singapore is much smaller but its stock market performace, companies and curreny are well covered.

    Sajith Premedasas says....

    He said, during his father?s time, if a foundation stone was laid for a project, it has never stopped without completion. But, now foundation stones are laid only to dupe the People. Hambantota Port and District development, as well as the Weerawila Airport are now standing as foundation stones only.

    [During the UNP reign, if there is a slight increase in prices, there were hypocritical champions of the cause of the poor who carried placards and shouted hoarse at the Lipton circus.]

    Now , when the c. o. l has shot sky high, people are starving, prices of essential goods being raised every day and open corruption, these heroes of the poor have become Zeros, unable even to protest as they are only faithful to their double dealing policies.

    People realize their mistake too late ,only when their stomachs are starving, hearts are aching with burdens ,and their mouths are gagged unable to talk thinking of their own folly in electing this despotic , corrupt and outrageously lying Rajapakses Govt., exhorted Sajith Premadasa
