Close to Rs 10 million are reported to have been set aside for a special celebration welcoming President Maithripala Sirisena’s return to the island after attending the sessions of the UN General Assembly.
However, contrary to the claim of modesty, cut-outs and posters of the President have appeared all over Colombo in a throwback to the Mahinda Rajapaksa era of mindless sycophancy.
Dissanayake, Siripala and Lansa were at the forefront of party that welcomed the President when he arrived. It is unclear which of their ministries would pick up the massive bill.
