Ada Derana today called President Sirisena ‘Maithripaka’ in their story published by their website at 4:34 pm titled “This is not an attack against me, but against our culture”.
Earlier even Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe and MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara also locked horns in parliament as well when Vasu went overboard with anger calling Ranil a `pakaya`.
Later Ranil hit back at Nanayakkara calling him a ‘dried pumpkin’ who had lost the prime of his life.
“He is a dried pumpkin. This is how defeated people behave,” the Prime Minister said when referring to Nanayakkara’s use of language and his theatrics in parliament.
However the direct translation of the word ‘pakaya’ means ‘penis’.
According to Ada Derana’s Facebook indicator attached to the news time, the website says that 117,600 people like this story at the time of writing.
It is still uncertain if the prime news website Ada Derana had made a ‘typo’ or if this was done intentionally as at the time of writing nearly three hours has lapsed since this story was uploaded.
Ada Derana is owned by businessman Dilith Jayaweera and Minister Sarath Amunugama’s daughter Varuni.
