I wasn't invited: Aluvihare

State Minister of Agriculture, Wasantha Aluvihare said he was not invited to the “Vesak Bethi Gee Saraniya” or the devotional song recital programme to be held at Ambagahamula in Matale on May 11, to mark International Vesak Day and as such would not be attending this event.

He told yesterday’s meeting of the Matale Divisional Coordinating Committee that he was the MP for the Matale electorate and any public event in the electorate should be organized with his knowledge.

The invitation had been prepared by the Central Province Cultural Department and issued by its Director M.M.M.C.B. Herath. (M.W. Somaratne)

    Correction !!!!There is no such a thing called "MP for Matale electorate".There are other MP's for Matale District as well.Also there is no neccessity to inform the MP's before organizing public events.This guy does not know the basics.
