I am bit confused about the  shuffling of ministers .I am sure that HE and PM wanted a change for the betterment of the country and made the reshuffle like a pack of cards.When such shuffle  takes place people are supposed to see a visible tangible change . I pass the entrance of the foreign ministry and see the shining banner of the new minister

I cannot see any interview given by the new ministers in TV expressing their opinions and proposals to change .I cannot see the change of attitude of the new chairmen who have been appointed at the helm, I see photos of the new chairman of SLPA ( who I respect more than the three predecessors  .You know why ?because I went to meet all three of them during last 4 years and they has no clue about port development !)

One chairman almost kicked me out of the office when I proposed privatization of oil bunkering in Hambantota

Next interim chairman who was a mortgage consultant from UK had no clue about port operations I hope that  the new chairman  will do something to develop main three ports in Galle .Trinco and Colombo

New chairman shall  do a walk through the port form Fort to Modera and order the officers to put the port in order ,House keeping and stop adhoc construction everywhere

Many workers doing nothing but loitering and gates are over manned .I  now pay 1100 Rs for the annual, pass against 2000 rs paid last year (Brain child of our cricket captain who tried googley and increased the entry permit cost 5 fold  !)

I pass through the port daily and what I see the new banners with shining photos of the new minister and the chairman of the Port .I also see that banners are originated by two unions who were one time on logger heads !They may want some favours

Today I was telling my senior driver that Philip Gunwardane ruined the port by nationalising!

God bless the Port

    SL VLOG in the June 4, 2017 video disclosed that Ravi Karunanayake as Finance Minister had paid 20 SELECTED UNP Ministers Rs 150,000 per month from the funds of the Finance Ministry.

    This payment to Ravi’s “Cabinet within the Cabinet” was not the regular salary of the Ministers but a payment made secretly.

    Apparently, when this was EXPOSED after the recent Cabinet Reshuffle, other Cabinet, Appointed and State Ministers outside this Ravi’s Personal Cabinet have become angry like a nest of HORNETS that they had not been paid the same Rs 150,000 as the selected 20 Ministers of Ravi’s own “Cabinet within the Cabinet”

    This SECRET PAYMENT without APPROVAL by Parliament and without a Gazette Notification represents a CRIMINAL ACT of THEFT on a GRAND SCALE!

    This PAL HORA should be indicted for Misappropriation of Government Funds, PROSECUTED, CONVICTED and IMPRISONED for a long time.

    If this ALLEGATION is TRUE, Ravi Karunanayake should NOT BE ALLOWED to serve as the Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka for ONE MORE DAY!

    Furthermore, those 20 Ministers who ACCEPTED Rs 150,000/month BRIBE under the Table, should be FIRED and CONVICTED as well!

    Will Aiyoooo SIRISENA CONTINUE PREACHING yahapalanaya homilies to us without taking action on this as he did on the BOND SCAM, or WILL HE UPHOLD THE LAWS OF THE LAND? I will give you only ONE GUESS!

    “Philip Gunwardane ruined the port by nationalising.”

    Then Colombo is the ONLY port in the world that was ruined by nationalizing. MOST key ports of other countries belong to LOCAL companies and govt.

    UNP ruined the port, airport, central bank, etc., etc.

    Now it is JUNE. UNP govt. should prepare for the JUNE MONTHLY disaster. It is coming.

    UNTIL UNP leaves office there will be a NATIONAL DISASTER every month.

    Result is ZERO. What can we expect from these same hypocrites who enjoy life over the dead bodies of our poor citizens in this country. Look at the expenses they occur due to bad governance? These traitors selling our resources in wholesale and no one bother to ask questions. Why yamaballo do not punish central bank robber Arjun after having so much evidence against him? How come Ravi escape justice after doing so many irregularities in the central bank during his tenure in office as finance minister? Overall this evil government had failed to take care of the people in this country. Sinhala population and the buddhists are in real danger due to their treacherous actions to please their foreign backers. Down with Yamapalanaya.
