Child calls president ‘Maithri Seeya’

10 September 2017 10:22 pm - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A pleasant scene was witnessed by many at a public function attended by President Maithripala Sirisena this afternoon in Kawudulla, where a little girl that sprang from the crowd fondly approached the President by calling him “Maithri Seeya”. The child was first obstructed by the President’s bodyguards but was soon allowed to proceed when the President himself gestured at his guards ‘alright’. The little girl who jumped into the first citizen’s lap comfortably remained to be there ‘chit chatting’ with her new found friend until the programme was concluded.  Pix by K.G.Karunaratne

    MR was criticized during the presidential campaign by MS supporters for curdling children in public rallies and what would they say now for this?

    This is so cute. The incident was different to what we have with showmen. The little girl was inquisitive to and wanted to make her way to the stage. The security had tried to stop and the president let her on the stage and there she was on the lap.
