Sri Lanka President's son treats his father with Rs. 3.25 billion worth presidential advertising campaign

(December 29, Colombo - Lanka Polity) Sri Lanka President's eldest son, Namal Rajapaksa is treating his beloved father with an advertising campaign worth of Rs. 3.25 billion in which famous persons urge the publc to vote to a 'sensitive' leader at the presidential scheduled to be held on January 26.

Namal Rajapaksa, an unemployed young person as far as we have learnt, spends these monies from the fund of an organization called "A Tomorrow for Youth" that he leads.

The famous persons like sportsmen and actors appearing in these advertisements say they have not charged any money for these commercials.

However, they are broadcast at least 72 times a day mostly in prime time in seven television channels. The campaign includes radio, press commercials and billboards etc. as well.

A recent study on the spending of this advertising campaign estimated the cost Rs. 3.25 billion minimum.

Nobody knows where these moneys come from to the funds of the "A Tomorrow for Youth".

  1. How many houses for the poor families?
    How many essential drugs for the hospitals?
    How many basic needs for poor families?
    Could have been done with this collosal amount of money. First pay the bills which are due to the caterers of Temple Trees dansala. The people who participate in these advertisements ? For money? Due to threats? You will be get what you deserve for all this dirty work you have done.
    APPACHCHI TA AND MATA HETAK.

  2. Writer should be ashamed to present this kind of news articles. As a hero who save our mother land should take to the power to escape the country from great thieves and traitors.
    So spending money for this is not a waste or corruption.
    use your brain man. Otherwise writers like this become traitors. Your next generation may not have to enjoy the democracy.

  11. THIS IS HOW THEY COLLECT MONEY
    The transportation of goods on the A9 route to the north is monopolized by the President’s son Namal Rajapaksa and several close friends of the Rajapaksa family even after the government claimed the route was open for transporting goods.

    The Defence Ministry it is learnt has issued licenses to 300 Lorries to transport goods through the A9 to the north and a lorry charges a sum of Rs. 124,000 for each trip to the north.
