‘Lady at the bar’ picture goes viral

15 February 2017 12:00 am - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}



This lady who once held very high office in the country has also been a controversial figure.


While travelling past Union Place the other day, she got the driver to stop the vehicle opposite a supermarket. She got down and walked into the supermarket with her security detail at her heels. Thereafter, she made a beeline to the foreign liquor bar. She was inspecting the rare brands of quality liquor when she suddenly noticed that a youth was carefully focusing the video camera of his mobile phone on her. This sent the lady into a flutter and she barked an order to her security men to catch the youth. 

Taking advantage of the seconds taken by the security to swing into action, the youth bolted and disappeared in the milling street crowd.  

By the time, the highly upset lady reached her official residence, video clips showing her at the foreign liquor counter had already appeared on social media websites!

    I do not know how this has become a news item to a reputed paper like this. Is there any law in the country that women cannot go to liquor shop or they should not consume alcohol? This too has become a gossip paper. There are so many issues in the country which needs careful, intellectual discussion. Please use your limited space in the paper publish valuable information people are interested in and not to sling mud at others.I am not sure whether you will have enough guts to publish these criticisms.

    What is wrong in a lady buying liquor? Are Sri Lankans so stupid as to call it a big news? Are the media in SL so cheap, always looking for cheap news. Get your act together media.
