  1. We are throuroughly disappoined the way PM is handling this matter. He is clueless about political realities.1 his only intrest is to appoint his loyalties who were rejected   b y people.2 he only mark time  and no meaning ful steps whatsoever taken so far to fulfil promises.3 we know is track record, 4, how he misserably failed as PM, 5, so we expect mr. President to interveen and  use more authority to make this 100 Day, programme successful.We are sorry to say we have no faith in PM. bma balsuriya
  2. No harm promoting anyone if they deserve it. Unfortunately Ratnayake was a very good soldier until we lost him the day he started politics in uniform. He addressed soldiers, ordered senior officers to support former president Mahinda Rajapaksha and sent leaflets to soldiers. These are blatant, serious and highly unethical acts and offences for an army person specially as the commander of the army. If he was so good and deserved the promotion then, why was he received of duties? Are we now saying yes to all these misdeeds. What is the sad message we are now sending to the person in uniform. We are destroying the noble organisations that are our ultimate hope. I am surprised that these people on top don't understand what is good governance and the military discipline in a democracy. This is the change we are now experiencing. We citizens who will get the return with interests one day. God Bless Sri Lanka! Nimalka Perera
