The Purawesi Balaya Organisation held a meeting in Ahangama on Wednesday where former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga noted that one person said that he paid Rs.250,000 rupees for a pair of shoes and Namal said that with pride. She went on to state:

But If my son had made that statement, I would have slapped him.

She  stated:

During my 11 year tenure as the President, both my children were given only one vehicle. But for their three children they gave over 30 vehicles. The aunt had two bullet-proof vehicles and the security for one son was 10, 15 and sometimes twenty vehicles and they went everywhere calling themselves the kings. If they have not studied and have no other talents, the only thing they can do it boast.

He further stated:

The eldest went to England for studies and failed the examination three times and returned.  Mahinda Rajapaksa then sent funds to the Sri Lanka High Commission in the UK to obtain a Rolls Royce for his son and to be kept at the High Commission. Both my children studied in England but never failed their examinations and when I was the Executive President they travelled in the bus and train while in England. The government did not spend a cent for them .
