Is April 23 auspicious?
UPFA General Secretary, MP Susil Premajayantha,
challenged the UNP-led government to effect the necessary constitutional

Buddhadasa on Weerawansa:
He’s a callous politician
The whole country knows the level of financial
strength Weerawansa had five years ago and his present position after
becoming a minister? How did he amass so much of wealth within such a
short period? He is not a professional, neither is he a businessman. He
is only a downright garrulous talker. How can he build castles? I expect
the authorities to conduct credible investigations into all my
complaints against him and bring him to book.
