Health Minister Rajitha Senaratna’s son yesterday challenged former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest the coming general elections from Beliatta.
Speaking at a meeting at the Sugathadasa Stadium yesterday, Chathura Senaratna said he would end the former President’s political career from the very place it began.
“Beliatta is where he was first elected as a public representative. I challenge him to contest from the same constituency. I too will contest from there and I will ensure his political career ends where it began,” he said.
The young politician said the former President had paid supporters to attend his rallies, when he was in office.
“However, during the last Presidential election they had to wait for at least four hours for supporters in Madamulana, even after they paid people to attend the rally,” he said.
