An event organised by former President Maithripala Sirisena, who is contesting the general elections, to distribute scholarships among 360 students selected for universities from the Polonnaruwa District, has been suspended by the Elections Commission today.

Speaking at the event at the Pulathisi Buddi Mandapa, Mr Sirisena made the announcement and said, as a former President of the country, he would never violate any election law or regulation.

“I express my regret due to the inconvenience caused to the children who came from afar and because there will be no distribution of scholarships today. However, the scholarships will be distributed on a date after the election in August,” he said.

The event was organised by the Maithripala Sirisena Lakdaru Diriya Foundation to distribute scholarships and certificates to the students selected for universities for the academic year of 2019. (K.G. Karunarathne)

    Former President knows that in an election time can't do this. Knowing that why he organised this event. Shame for him.

    Why didn’t you allow the Dept. Of education to distribute those scholarships?

    Ha haa the joker in action. Well.done EC. May lambasted the Rajapakshe now in their camp. What a man

    This reminds me of the pardon given to the person with a death sentence for the Royal Park murder. Will distribution of scholarships and money change the route from going to hell.

    We don't know whether Maithri will be a free man or in confinement somewhere, after the elections.

    Aiyo aho Sirisena, you could have distributed egg hoppers, instead of scholarships.

    Amarabandu seems to be taking the spot light in the news these days. Honestly, let's hope this no good fool does not get to parliament.

    WE All NEED TO BE ALERT HE HAS CHANGED HIS NAME FROM EAGLE TO EAGLEMAITHRI, contest election. That’s part of scholarship.

    Kapila Senaratne Monday, 15 June 2020 07:44 PM

    Well done Elections commission by executing the Law of the land.

    Roshan samarathunga Monday, 15 June 2020 07:45 PM

    EAGLEMAITHRI is back, everyone must stay alert.

    MY3 YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR OWN MONEY FOR THIS SCHOLARSHIP, WHILE THE RAJAPAKSAS WILL USE GOVT FUNDS AND PUBLISH THEIR NAMES. EVEN MONUMENTS FOR THEIR PARENTS WERE MADE FROM GOVT FUNDS, WHAT A SHAME

    YOU ARE UNLAWFUL, UNQUALIFIED AND UNEDUCATED. YOU DID EVERYTHING AGAINST THE LAW FOR PAST FEW YEARS.

    Anuk Rodrigo Tuesday, 16 June 2020 04:33 PM

    Aiyo Sirisena! With your Grama Sevaka qualifications you became HE President. You messed up the whole country. Your television interviews confirmed that you are Unlawful, Unqualified And Uneducated 21,000 signature guy.
