President Gotabaya Rajapaksa assured today that the funds of the COVID-19 Social and Security Fund would be utilised with complete transparency.
The balance of the COVID-19 Social and Security Fund exceeded Rs.1 billion yesterday.
While extending gratitude to all those who contributed generously to the Fund, President Rajapaksa said the audited accounts of expenditures will be shared with the public in due course.
There is no smoke without a fire. We all know you and your gang. I prefer to feed street dogs than contribute to this fund. Why? I am a dog lover and not a "So called Patriot" that loot.

Don't you still know who Rajapakse's are? Can you tell why certain journalists "disappeared" and remember how a retired Chief Justice apologised from the nation for giving a wrong verdict?
Hans perlee Saturday, 16 May 2020 04:11 PM
Yes of course in due time. Why not now?

This is interesting how transparent is it going to be? Like where did most of the funds that were given for Tusnami go to?
Bhatiya Siriwardena Sunday, 17 May 2020 08:09 AM
What transparency can be expected when Rs5000 dole was distributed in a highly politicized way? When so many well to do people got it through Pohottuwa pradeshiya sabhha members.

It is very apparent that some of the commentators
have lots of doubts as to how the President is going to use the money and that he too can misuse the funds. It is unfair to treat everybody in the same way. For 10 years Gota had proved (as Defense Secretary and UDA Chairman) how honestly he spent the public money and what an amount of valuable jobs he did for the country. He is not one of those corrupt politicians. He was a dedicated soldier of Senor Rank and an able Administrator. Pl. wait for another one year and you will see how truthful I have been.
