COLOMBO (News 1st) – Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa arrived at the residence of JVP politburo member K. D. Lalkantha to pay last respects to his mother who passes away recently. The former president expressed his condolences to K. D. Lalkantha and had a discussion with him.

The former president then spoke to journalists regarding the current political situation, at the residence of Former Minister S. M. Chandrasena.
