My brother's rocket was a private investment- Namal

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), MP Namal Rajapaksa responded to discussions surrounding the recent rocket launch by India, emphasizing that people often associate it with the rocket sent by his brother.

Addressing a seminar organised by the SLPP, he said he was asked this in parliament as well.

"The rocket was sent by my brother as a private sector project. If there is government investment in it, it should be brought before the COPE committee.

"But we cannot question an investment made by a private businessman. If Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa wants to inquire about the investment, that is up to him, and that is his vision.

"He can investigate into the incident and bring it up before the COPE committee if there is government investment.

"These statements are limited to mud sliding in political environments, and we cannot develop the economy with this mud sliding.

"The economy of the country cannot be built by dashing a political character, damaging the names of their children and burning their houses," MP Rajapaksa said. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
