Let’s get set for elections

We saw the huge crowds that had gathered at his residence to pay their last respects showing scant regard to physical distancing and the wearing of face masks while some of those wearing them having the masks round their necks. We even saw the Prime Minister disregarding the often repeated health guidelines by embracing the late minister’s son prompting many to ask whether the law applies differently to different people — one for ordinary citizens and another for the rich and elite.

We highlight this matter not with any ulterior motives but mainly for the important reason that every citizen is a stakeholder in the fight to eradicate COVID19 from Sri Lankan soil and the disregard of the prescribed Health Guidelines places the citizenry at grave risk. We wonder what the powers-that-be have to say on this matter.
