Mr. Lakshman Hulugalla, a powerful figure in the present government, has shared a Facebook post on Saturday (25) with pictures of him and former minister Nimal Lanza sharing wine at the Hilton Hotel.  

In a time all the liquor stores in the country are closed and selling alcohol has been banned due to the prevailing situation, this suggests that a separate law is being implemented for the benefit of the 'very important persons' of the country,

We have no grudge against the consumption of liquor at all. However, we suggest that the freedom people like Lanza, Hugalla are privileged with amidst this crisis shall also be given to the general public who pays their taxes.
