    Criminals are like sniffing dogs; they follow the money trail. Perhaps that is the reason they gang up in Dubai that harbour them.
    But in this ‘Dharma Dweepa’ do we want to be a Singapore or a Dubai?.

    If we opt for the latter in the above last sentence, then we all know what this country would become.

    Achariya Harsha de Silva the parliamentarian, inveterate mudslinger and all knowing economist must be fretting and turning in his sleep trying to fathom what is happening to the ASPI!

    Covid-19 must be seen as an opportunity to market Sri Lanka as a can do nation! This is the time to make the world confident that Sri Lanka can be relied upon to deliver despite the naysayers and the slanderous Opposition.
