Rajitha’s latest explanation over Nandana’s identity! Featured

The prime minister had come to know the identity of the investor for the tyre factory in Horana only on the day the foundation was laid for the project, cabinet spokesman Rajitha Senaratne told the media on January 25.

On the following day, minister Malik Samarawickrama issued a statement refuting Senaratne’s claim.

Samarawickrama said in his statement that both the president and the PM had been told in advance that the investor for the project was Nandana Lokuwithana.

At today’s (15) cabinet media briefing, journalists questioned Senaratne about his colleague’s contradicting his remark.

Responding, Senaratne stood firm with what he said, adding that the PM did knew the investor was Lokuwithana, but that he did not know him to be a person accused of corruption.
