Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son apologises over social media comments

Colombo, Feb 24 (IANS) Rohitha Rajapaksa, one of three sons of Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, has issued an apology over comments he made on social media that drew strong criticism, a media report said.

“I recently made a statement as a result of a targeted offensive comment. It was not my intention to deliberately cause distress to any individual and/or community. Therefore, I sincerely apologise,” the Colombo Gazette newspaper quoted Rohitha as saying in a tweet on Sunday.

The apology came after an individual had tweeted saying: “All what we have achieved is to see you three brothers get married in the same year with nine ceremonies and your in-laws become most eligible for state positions and you live out of public money…”

To this, Rohitha responded by saying: “There is no clause I have to declare my private assets and show off. But trust me no public fund is used for our personal benefits. Why don’t you get ur self a proper job and an education so you won’t be jealous of another persons success. Get a wife and make children.”

To another tweet, he replied: “You seem to know a lot more than the CID, please join and make them finish these cases soon so you can find ur self a boyfriend who can keep you company.”

The Prime Minister’s son received widespread criticism due to these two tweets.
