Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa today rejected allegations that he had wanted Wijerama Mawatha where his official residence is located closed.

In a statement in Parliament he said he never asked that Wijerama Mawatha be closed.

“I have never asked for the closure of Wijerama Mawatha at any time. It is not only me who is residing on this road. Minister Gayantha Karunatilleke and Minister Champika Ranawaka also live down this road. The Palestine Embassy in Sri Lanka is also located along the same road. Therefore how could I make such a request,” he asked.

Mr. Rajapaksa was referring to an allegation made by some government members in the House on Thursday that he had wanted the road closed.

“It is time we stopped making allegations against each other and work together to see the country through the present crisis,” he said and urged the government to come up with an overall economic management package to help the affected parties. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    The best answer to this issue is "the road closes by itself". We all believe this black magic.

    No jackass MAHINDA. I personally witnessed and was affected by road closures at Halle face and on Thurston rd when you were in power and drove around in your fleet of Mercedes limousines. So shut up and accept your damned failings. Asshole.
