PM Defends Chathura Senaratne Over Wedding At Temple Trees

The office of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, responding to alleged ‘false and baseless allegations regarding parliamentarian Chathura Senaratne‘s wedding, claimed that the event was not held at Temple Trees, his (Wickremesinghe’s) official residence but in another building on the same premises.

The Prime Minister’s office, in a media release, explained that there are other buildings outside the ‘official residence’ which include a banquet hall.

The office explained that there is a procedure which is followed in hiring these facilities for state or other functions.

Senaratne had made a request to obtain the banquet hall for his wedding and the office, determining that since he was a Government MP and the reasons he had offered were just, had acceded to the request as per established procedures.

‘It was not offered free of charge as some have alleged, but given at rates normally charged for events of this nature,’ according to the media release.

The Prime Minister’s office maintained that it had played no part in decorations, provision of food and beverages or any other matter.

Senaratne, who has a reputation for uncontrollable bragging, is reported to have made a wedding speech in which he praised his bride for choosing to forego the opportunity of becoming a Permanent Resident of the USA. He claimed that the US Ambassador ‘was shocked by this refusal and had said it was the first such case he had encountered as a diplomat’.

Senaratne also said that his bride had decided not to pursue a medical degree in a local state university because ‘she wanted to support him.’

He finally said that the two had a dream of seeing a change in the country and claimed that this dream had been fulfilled.

      How come this girl was made a student of SAITM ?

      Not even just unedcuated unlernt men and women but also the sons and daughters of learnt men and women too had been tamed by Rajapakshe illegal SAITEM. how come ?

      This proves, regardless of uni educations, lankens in general are fools.
      If there had been no legal basis, those parents should long have been aware, the bankrupsy of the INSTITUTION -SAITM pvt medical college.

    The Senaratna family, father and two sons are real freaks.

    By the looks of it, the couple is ikely to produce a baby (in around 10 months time?) whose birth cry will be “I helped Maithri become president” and “I went in procession with Vijaya”. He will also have the crooked index finger on the right hand, like father and grandfather!

      The elder Senaratne is a clear aspirant to the country’s top job – if not for the No.2 slot. The younger is groomed to take over the Kingdom in due time – which makes him an unwelcome competitor to the Medamulana Clan. They are not the only ones. There are several others. These criminals take the people for punnakku-eating cattle. Rajitha S is one of those who criminalised politics in the post-1990 period. There is nothing, in his long political career, where he can lay claim to have done something useful to the country and its people. He is notorious for having kidnapped a Singaporean Executive of Prima Flour Mills – some years ago. What quality for a future leader of the country?

      The young man and his family clearly try to convince the country and the world the wedding was held at Temple Trees – claiming some sadistic victory over the Medamulana mafia. All this while the country is burning and many millions suffer in want of their daily food and other essentials

    The entire Senaratne family lives on Government Funds.

    – Father went to Singapore and have had his bypass surgery spending almost 10 million rupees from public funds.
    – Son is also living on government funds. Even though what ever PM’s Office tells, there can be a substantial public money outflow because of his private wedding. There are direct costs and indirect costs. If the PM’s Office is genuine, they need to publish how much money they recovered from Senaratne as hall booking charges.

    I think that the Auditor-General needs to make a separate investigation and prosecute these people for misuse of public funds. JVP and Athureliaya Rathana thero talks about curruoption but keep silent on these matters.

    What a lucky Boy this is?
    Dr Ranil hand picked young Senanarathne and Shoe Honed him into Parliament.
    With his Oratory like Demosthenes, Dr Ranil must have seen the Talent which is lacking in Dr Ranil’s current Team.
    The crafty Dr Ranil talent spotted him before anyone else, to make him a future Leader of the UNP.
    This is the Jewel in the Crown for Young Senarathne ,the rare talent which the UNP is now blessed with.
    A certain future UNP PM of Lankawe. Young Sene can now boast that he is the only UNPer who Honeymooned in Araliya gaha Mandiraya..
    And can boast about how he produced an offspring at the Temple Trees, which has been the Holy Turf aka Official Residence of many great Prime Ministers of Eksath Jathika Pakshya…..
    But non of them could claim that sort of achievement….
    Good on you mate..
    May God Bless and help produce a lot of UNPers , because our great Majority deserve them…

      “The crafty Dr Ranil talent spotted him before anyone else, to make him a future Leader of the UNP.”

      Don’t be silly.
      Dr Ranil has found a way of raising income for the state by letting the ceremonial surplus hall to the wealthy or the crooks.
      Namal should book this hall in advance if and when he stops being what he is decides to tie the knot. Perhaps if the dad occupies this premises by chance he could have it free and probably your son too. Ranil will not hesitate to help his chum if he doesn’t reside at Temple Trees.

    When the country is in dire need to stop the abuse of state resources, it is only prudent to stay away from them by any sensible politician. Yet, the MPs that get voted in by the unsuspecting are always at it. Do they really need this type of situations at this point in time?

    Given the attitude of the majority community towards corruption and not being able to be detached of these third class perks, it’s hard to imagine any progress to this country.

    What has the actual effect of Buddhism, no one knows. Shameful.

    MR used to host weddings at Temple Trees as personal favours and family treats. Stalin the famous Bank Union boss had his daughter’s wedding at Temple Trees. That is how MR corrupted everybody including the Union bosses.

    Ranil is another sly character posing off as a gentleman.

    Rajitha Senaratne went to Singapore to get medical treatment and got the Presidents fund to finance the cost !

    His son , this slippery slime bag is getting public to fund his wedding !

    As stated in the Press Release from the PM’s office this premises is available for RENT and it has been on that basis that this MP was given it to hold his wedding. Fine and NO PROBLEM. Now, I request the Auditor General to undertake an “AUDIT” of the “Income” and the “Expenditure” of this business transaction and tell the people the findings. He must find out “Who” is making the DECISION and on what RENT and what are the charges for other facilities included in the Rent and ALL moneys have been duly paid and received and ACCOUNTED. This premises belong to the PEOPLE and AG has authority to do the Audit. My neighbor, Singho Maama’s daughter is to be wedded in three months time. If I had the necessary funds, I would definitely make an application to book this Reception Hall, situated next to PM’s Office and Residence. I know, one condition would be not to “SPIT” out “BEETLE CHEW” (that is fine) but hope no restrictions on our Govi Rala’s Amude” dress.

    Wedding in the temple trees was an agreement he got when he was in the pre school from Madam Chandrika through Vijaya when he participated demonstrations with Vijaya.
    Madam Chandrika honoured the agreement through her new childhood ass wiper

    New mania in the offing?

    Public places, even if the ones who occupy them might be democratically disregarded/controversial; hold in high esteem are going to be made fancy parlors.

    There’re plenty of better places in case a difference is sought; there’s GF green, play grounds, spacious beaches, sanctuaries, cemeteries etc.

    Social deterioration.

    Behind Part-truths, Fake-truths, Alt-truths, Designer-truths, Right/Left of Centre-truths and the like, lurks the real-Truth.
    Chathura Senaratne claims his bride, Sarupa Samangi, turned down the Permanent Residency of the United States as she wanted to be with him.
    Did she turn it down the day she turned sixteen?
    Chathura also said that his bride had decided not to pursue a medical degree in a local state university because ‘she wanted to support him.’
    Was the ‘local state university’ SAITM or Kotelawala Defence University?

    What do you expect the PM to do. He even defended
    the bond scam saving there was no wrong done. Can
    Siripala, Sunderam and Sumaney get the Temple Trees
    for a wedding. Who is there to see to these things? PM
    never never does the right thing. Today he says the east
    will be developed soon. What was he doingall this time.
    Tomorrow he might say a Sri Lankan will go to the moon.

    Foremost, let me wish the couple a happy wedded life. The issue raised is whether the banquet hall within the premises of Temple Trees and in the control of the Prime Minister’s office is misused or provided without any rational and fair basis. Clearly the construction of the hall was yet another work in the face of the CHOGM perhaps can be described as an ostentatious act during the previous regime. Having had the hall, it must be utilized and it cannot be kept idling. I am sure that it was used for many other so called private functions before but not publicized. All in all the best course of action is to make the hall available to functions, even private ones with a fee covering costs plus margin, where the security concerns are met and when the PM is not within the premises. If a separate access can be made to the hall so much the better separating it out from the rest of Temple Trees if and when required.

    Shame PM should provide us cost analysis and he has no idea of people pulse and he himself said our economy is in bad shape and ministers are spending lavishly and is it another bribe by pm to this minister to get his support to be in power as there is growing public opinion to oust him due to corruption and inefficiency
