Leader of the JVP,Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated that after Keheliya Rambukwella took a fall in a hotel in Australia, a sum of Rs,11.2 million was spent from the President’s Fund for the operation and around Rs.22 million was spent for the medication from a hospital in Singapore for D.M.Jayaratne.

He added that in order to obtain Rs,175,000  from the President’s Fund when one of our children suffer from a heart condition,you need to have a certification from the Divisional Secretariat, a doctor and you need have so many filesp and then you are given a number to which you have to make phone call and you have  to keep on asking when you will be given the funds. But these things were not looked into for Keheliya. That the President’s Fund paid for the expenses and it was the same was for D.M. Jayaratne , the former prime minister.
