    Credit should go to MR for getting rid of the terrorist outfit and doing all the infrastructure works which attracted
    these massive influx of tourists. Who is benefitting from it? These current bunch of treacherous, UNPatriotitc_rats
    thieves having time of their lives with luxury cars, fat bank balances etc. etc. plus people involved in the tourist
    industry. At least a good word to say? No chance of that. That’s Sri Lanka, that’s Sinhalese, tamils and mussies.
    But the great man is not going to be heartbroken. He saved hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese, tamils and
    mussie lives and made country and its people earn a living. These current bunch of treacherous thieves looking
    for a place to hide since the corrupt thugs can’t postpone elections like previous times by murdering Sinhalese.
