The Palestine Embassy today said the Rs. 130 million donated to Palestine by the previous government was an urgent humanitarian contribution to the people of Palestine after the Israel attack on Gaza.

The statement issued by the Embassy thanked the government and the people of Sri Lanka for its humanitarian gesture.

The embassy released the statement after several newspapers reported quoting Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe that the donation was for the construction of a vocational training Institute which was to be named after President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

It also said the training institute to be named Mahinda Rajapaksa Vocational Training Centre was based on a memorandum of understanding signed between the two governments.

    Sri Lankans cannot afford to eat or have basic human facilities. Lankans are suffering in poverty, and they need humanitarian aid from other countries.

    Thought only the JVP was worried about other countries. Now Ranil is (UNP) is worried about a donation to Palestine? How about his Mr. Karunanayaka (minister of finance )receiving $3 million from a convicted criminal Raj Rajaratnam of the US (money laundering). Ranil should tell the US Government that this person received the $3/0 million that Rajaratnam was trying to hide (so the US Government could not seize it) and arrange to return it!The economy is going down Ranil give the people a plan as to how you plan to improve the economy.
