Two persons including a woman had been injured after a convoy vehicle of former President Rajapaksa collided with a motorcycle in Pitigala this afternoon, the Police said.
They said the former president’s vehicles were traveling from Elpitiya to Pitigala. The driver of the vehicle had been arrested and the vehicle involved in the accident was also taken into the custody.
Police said the injured were admitted to the Elpitiya hospital with minor injuries.
Meanwhile, in a message posted on his tweeter handle, Mr. Rajapaksa said his motorcade was involved in an accident yesterday on the way from Tangalle to Colombo.
"A motorcyclist was injured as security personnel took measures to avert a major accident," he tweeted. (DS)
The lunatic motorcades have been thankfully curtailed but no has told this clown?

This security culture should be changed. It is peacetime now and no politician required security. This unnecessary security is not only costly but also leads to many other ill effects like this accident. People must rally against politicians security or a party like JVP must make a voice demanding the scrap of security.

If this security contingent belongs to a disciplined armed force, their driving standards are also assumed extremely disciplined, then how come we hear of so many accidents involving the armed forces?

He, his family and the lot still think Sri Lanka belongs to them. Nice the guy was kicked out. Like to see the fellow behind bars!

A real Al Capone style accident. Why still security for "God Father" on State costs ?
OMG Sunday, 01 November 2015 04:36 PM
Our politicians are so good with public and doing a fantastic job for betterment of country and its people. So why they need so much security personals? only gangsters need so much security personal.

Why does Rajapakse address himself in third person and that too as the former president?
cric Sunday, 01 November 2015 09:08 PM
Who travels from Tangalle to Colombo via pitigala???
Empulze Sunday, 01 November 2015 09:09 PM
The tweet is outright hilarious, sounds as if the motor bike headed towards them and tried to cause a huge impact on the motorcade. As if no one knows how these motorcades use to travel on roads.
