Buckingham Stables Horses And Private Choppers For Rajapaksas

The common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena has revealed some interesting details of the lavish lifestyles led by family members of the ‘සංවේදී නායකයා’ during several election campaigning rallies held over the weekend.

Rohitha RajapaksaSpeaking at a rally in Panduwasnuwara yesterday, Sirisena had said that millions were spent to buy a horse last year from the Royal mews of the Buckingham palace for the young ‘prince’ Rohitha Rajapaksa.

“The horse was unloaded from the Port and directly taken to Nuwaraeliya where it was visited by the ‘little prince’. He got onto a helicopter in the morning, arrived in Nuwaraeliya, rode the horse and headed back to Colombo after a few hours. They claim to promote campaigns for the youth under the title ‘Tharunyata Hetak’’ – where is that future for the youth from the villages?” he questioned.

Meanwhile, during a campaign rally held in Wennappuwa Maithripala Sirisena had revealed more details of how state funds are being misappropriated by the Rajapaksa family as if it is their personal wealth, to maintain their luxurious lifestyles.

“Six choppers were brought down and they were shared among the family including the ‘princes’. They have separate choppers and separate bullet proof vehicles. Who has to pay for these? It is the common man and the woman who are being made to pay for their exorbitant schemes,” he said.

    What is wrong with the president’s family having helicopters and horses? Are these people jealous of their wealth and well being? As the first family of Sri Lanka they deserve these comforts.

    The first clue that this is false is that, it states that the horses were bought from the Royal Mews. The Royal Mews are the Queen’s stables, and is not a shop that sells horses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Mews#Carriage_horses
