His appointment has been endorsed by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the relevant letter has been forwarded to Keerthi Ranjith Abeysiriwardena, the Secretary to the State Ministry of Rural Home Construction and Building Materials Industry Promotion by Secretary to President Dr. P.B Jayasundara.

I thought this reprobate had brain damage during that infamous shootout.
What does this tell us about the Rajapakses. For me they condone murder. WHAT A DESPICABLE FAMILY.

What a sigh of relief, I was thinking he might be made the defense minister after bringing him in to the parliament via the back door. But again he is a technocrat in some substance.
Ceylonese Sunday, 18 July 2021 08:56 AM
You don't need to be qualified to get a job under this Government. You have to be either a murderer, rapist or a drug addict. No wonder there is so much crime in this country because everybody is competing with each other to secure the top jobs in the country. No wonder Sri Lanka is called the wonder of Asia.
Karl Sunday, 18 July 2021 09:00 AM
What's this!?!.....we expected a cabinet minister appointment!
Anura Nanayakkara Sunday, 18 July 2021 09:04 AM
This clearly shows how foolish and gullible our so called Hon. President. Shame on you, sure to lose next election. This appointment is to sell and make under hand dealings regarding selling and allocating govt. build houses to friends.
Anura Nanayakkara Sunday, 18 July 2021 09:12 AM
What a shameful act is this by Medamulana gang of organised robbers to rob public money during selling the housing commission built houses to their friends.

Dumb voters won't care. They will vote for the mafia again. Media is too timid to publish any negative stories. Opposition have their own crooks. Salute the Sri lanka flag........
