While visiting Lalith and Anusha Palpita in Welikada prison hospital, Mahinda Rajapaksa said, that it was he who ordered to issue ‘Sil clothes’ and they were punished for it.
Rajitha Senaratne made a statement at the press briefing held yesterday (13) to announce the cabinet decisions said, that a case can be filed against former President Mahinda Rajapakse as he had admitted that he instructed Lalith Weerathunga to launch the ‘Sil clothes’ distribution campaign.
Mahinda Rajapaksa should have admitted this truth earlier. He did not have the guts to admit that it is under his directions the ‘Sil’ cloths campaign was launched. Now he makes statements while on his way back from Welikada prison trying to create a media bubble by appearing as a hero,” he said. The ‘Sil’ cloths case was heard at courts for 24 days. He should have appeared at the courts on one of those days and should have made this statement,” Senaratne charged.

Sports Minister , that he did not distribute a single Sil cloth from his hands.
