More Talk with Poor Actions


Three old buildings in Colombo city which had been repaired during the Rajapaksa government appear in an advertisement under the caption "Action Vs Talk". Yes, the buildings are nice to see, but what purposes do they serve? High end eateries and shops!

Our governments usually mix their priorities and the Rajapaksas, in the 2005-2010 period, were above the others. If it is construction, they never thought twice, it may be a building, a sea/airport, high tower, massive theater, or a tele-cinema village, no looking back. The recently retired Auditor General once said, the governments readily approve funds for construction of buildings for schools, irrespective of the number of students studying there, but not for more important other basic items. If these are the "Actions", it would be more prudent to be satisfied with the "Talk."
