It was revealed in Parliament today (21st) that more than Rs.150 million allocated to construct buildings for courts in Gampaha and Galle have been spent for Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s election campaigns.
This was revealed when the Minister of Justice Wijedasa Rajapaksa responded to a question posed by JVP Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath while participating in the committee stages of the budget debate. He asked why the construction of eh buildings in the districts have not been completed.
Despite Minister of Justice was careful not to mention any names, Parliamentarian Vasudeva Nanayakkara, who spoke animatedly said complaining against Parliamentarians in such a way was not ethical and people need not know such sensitive information.
