No comment yet from Mahinda to the letter yesterday dispatched by President Maithripala Srisena

Colombo, 14 August, (Asiantribune.com):

So far there were no comments forthcoming from former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, to the hard-hitting letter dispatched by President Maithripala Srisena yesterday afternoon, about the appointment of Prime Minister, where he has reiterated that he will not appoint Mahinda Rajapaksa as Prime Minister, even if UPFA wins the majority in the Parliamentary Elections – 2015.

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that he is yet to see the letter that is said to have been sent to him by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Speaking at the Homagama UPFA rally taking place at this moment, Rajapaksa said that someone informed him of a letter but he was yet to see it. He said that he cannot say anything before seeing it.

Meanwhile, his media coordinator Rohan Welivita had told media that he was yet to receive a letter. If the President wanted to send a letter to Rajapaksa, the best way would have been to send it directly rather than releasing it to media, he had also said.

A letter sent by Sirisena to Rajapaksa was released to media yesterday afternoon.

In it, Sirisena revealed many details of the interactions between him and Rajapaksa during the last few months and added that he would not support Rajapaksa to be the next Prime Minister even if the UPFA wins the election.

Sirisena also revealed that he and Rajapaksa had been good friends until Basil Rajapaksa ruined the friendship.
