Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s youngest son Rohitha Rajapaksa had tendered an apology via Twitter referring to a Tweet he posted in response to an individual's tweet.
“I recently made a statement as a result of a targeted offensive comment. It was not my intention to deliberately cause distress to any individual and/or community. Therefore, I sincerely apologise,” he tweeted.
All started when an individual had tweeted saying that “all what we have achieved is to see you three brothers get married in the same year with 9 ceremonies and your in-laws become most eligible for state positions and you live out of public money at temple trees despite having sent a rocket to wherever”.
In response to the above criticism, Rohitha Rajapaksa tweeted that "There is no clause I have to declare my private assets and show off. But trust me no public fund is used for our personal benefits. Why don’t you get ur self a proper job and an education so you won’t be jealous of another persons success. Get a wife and make children.”
