Rs. 4.2 million (US $43 750) spent on one vote

It has been revealed that the Sri Lankan government spent Rs. 4.2 million (US $43 750) in setting up polling booths at Muhamaali in Jaffna, for people in the liberated territories of Wanni to vote at.

The particular polling station witnessed 1 vote being cast in the elections.

More than ten average family homes could have been built for 4.2 million rupees. Several thousand homeless people in Jaffna did not vote, as both the UNP and the extremist governments had done practically nothing to rebuild the houses damaged by the Tsunami and the war.

Hey, you have a great blog here. I know this has nothing to do with your site but I have a new blog that I've just started, its been up for a couple of days. I gave my blog a cool title which seems to attract visitors:

Have you got any suggestions about stuff you would like to read about??? Take a look if you get the chance. I want my blog to be cutting edge...a good read. lol...your'll understand when you see it!

The other site I have is a work from home moms site. Its all about, need I say it, working from home. I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway take a look see what you think.

Keep up the good work, I'll be back to visit + I'll be at any suggestions you have about my blog.
