A mathematical problem has arisen in political circles where politicians are currently puzzling over the correct calculation of the country’s population.Southern Provincial Councillor Pasanda Yapa Abeywardena chimed in on the discourse stating that recently it was seen that someone was saying over 20 million people attended the Padha Yathra
“Now when you become a parliamentarian you must speak with a certain sense of responsibility. Then I heard another person saying that this 20 million did not include just people but the gods in the heavens as well”, he said
He explained that this would essentially mean that the Provinacial Councillor himself has attended this rally without knowledge, and now this reason is being debated by two factions on social media – where one group says that those who gave nominations to these people are wrong – while the other is saying that those who voted for them are at fault.
The Provincial Councillor expressed these views at an event to distribute housing donations and self employee donations to low income families in the Matara District.
