The real picture of Sri Lanka`s beggar world

    [50% of the beggars are against granting houses or lands to them. 84% are against somebody providing them an employment. 90% are against social benefits and the majority of them like to remain as beggars.]

    even if a country is developed to an extent that unemployment is hard to find... there will still be beggars..that is a common fact.. considering what I have seen and heard from developed countries it was surprising to find people homeless and on the streets.. so Sri Lanka is no exception... but from what I have heard about beggars in Sri Lanka they earn quite a lot of money on a daily basis...

    [Ethnic % is in correct. 61,29 &19 gives 109]

    Mr. Brown that`s right. May be there is a mis-print. Should the ratio for the Tamils be 20% I/O 29 or the Muslims be 10% I/O 19?

    I searched the AP web site but can`t find anything about this Survey.

    Over to you Mr. Brown for further clarification.

    [10% are children ]

    What is the percentage of children in LTTE? - expressed as a percentage of total LTTE cadre?

    LTTE has NO child soldiers any more. Don`t you know that? Strange.

    Soon LTTE will have no soldiers at all.

    [The survey carried out by an independent body exposes amazing facts]

    [Ethnic % is in correct. ]

    Another NGO ploy...What more can you expect. They surely don`t know how to get their figures right.
