It is reported that President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has reacted to a poster carrying the photo of former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe after spotting it on the way from his home in Mirihana to the Presidential Secretariat in Fort.
Media reported the President calling his brother – PM Mahinda Rajapaksa soon afterwards, saying, “There is a poster with Ranil Wickremesinghe’s photo and the figure 75. Maybe it is his birthday?”
To this, the PM had staunchly replied that it cannot be so because Ranil is not 75 years old yet.
The President had reacted to the poster of Ranil Wickremesinghe, which was pasted all over Colombo to mark the 75th anniversary of the UNP.
