Social media are busy these days inquiring who the minister is who has allegedly imported a Mercedes Benz S300 costing Rs.40.1 million -- which is now parked at a ministerial car park in Battaramulla.
The social media have also posted several photographs of the motor car.
When this matter was brought up at a meeting held to reveal Cabinet decisions, Minister Rajitha Senaratne the co-spokesperson had said that he was unaware of it.
Websites also said that, at a time when people are heavily taxed, the importation of expensive luxury cars for the use of ministers was vehemently opposed by the people.
The S300 was said to be a hybrid vehicle replete with modern features and options.

These ministers are complaining how much this country owe to the world.To import any thing you need foreign currency,mainly the dollar. Is there are any politician bring dollars to this country ,None.The only people who bring dollars to this country are hard working foreign workers.What our politician do with that money,they spend on luxuries for themselves.No wonder this country in such a state.
