The UNP today said UPFA MP Sajin Vass Gunewardhena had declined to help fishermen affected by the adverse weather condition mid sea off the coast of Balapitya few days ago.
 
UNP MP Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe told the news conference that MP Gunewardhena owned a helicopter which he had given to a media institution on rent instead of using it to rescue victims who were distraught in mid sea.

He alleged that MP Gunewardhena of not lending his helicopters to rescue fishermen.

“Fishermen had requested Mr. Gunewardhena to send one of his private helicopters to rescue the fishermen. However, he had not heeded to this request as he had given his helicopter to a media institute on a rent of Rs. 65,000 per an hour,” the MP said. (LSP, YP)

    colin Thursday, 13 June 2013 01:17 PM

    In fairness to Sajin if he has hired out the heli its not quite possible for him to get it for rescuing purposes without the consent of the person whom he has hired it to. If approached he could have requested that the heli be released for the purpose but if the media company refuses there is not much Sajin can do as there maybe a contract binding the two parties. Not that I want to hold a candle to Sajin but t\any judgement whoever it maybe must be fair

    baldus Thursday, 13 June 2013 01:20 PM

    of all MPs this is a THUG i cannot stand who is stealing SO MUCH from Our country,

    Dear Colin you may be ignorant of rule of necessity which prevails over rule of any law. You are not only holding candle but also lighting torch.

    deepal Thursday, 13 June 2013 03:03 PM

    Sajin is not from Balapitiya- He is from Ambalangoda
    People from Balapitiya elects only gentlmens Not Puppets..

    sammy Thursday, 13 June 2013 03:05 PM

    Has the Inland Revenue queried his income? This is a story of 'rags to riches' in an instant.
