Secretary to the Agriculture Ministry B. Wijerathne today mistakenly addressed President Maithripala Sirisena as former president Mahinda Rajapaksa in his welcome address at the ‘Wasa Wisa Nethi Jathika Pola’ National Exhibition at BMICH.
However, he rectified the mistake and apologized. President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and several other ministers were present at the event.
