Salman Khan's pathetic stunt in Sri Lankan politics

Khan with President's son Namal Rajapaksha
Bollywood super star Salman Khan who arrived in Sri Lanka on December 28 on a dubious tour has left the island without much hype.

Khan was seen in the political rallies of President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is
rapidly losing popularity and in the path of possible defeat at January 08

On the day the President and his all powerful elder son Namal Rajapaksha welcomed Salman Khan and appeared in rallies with him, a group of young and popular Sri Lankan artists were brutally assaulted by the goons connected to the government.

Several artists were hospitalized due to this attack led by a ruling party
Provincial Councillor.

Opposition claimed Salman Khan has been paid Rs. 700 million for his public
appearance in President Mahinda Rajapaksha's Presidential campaign.

However, the government said Khan had come to Sri Lanka to donate eye lenses and explore the opportunities to help the flood victims. Minister Dallas Alahapperuma said that he had come with his own expenses.

However, Khan's tour wrongly scheduled ended promptly on December 29th adding misery to the President's failing campaign.

One of Salman Khan's escort vehicles ran over two children, reports say, seriously injuring them.

In one of the rallies ruling party MP Thilanga Sumathipala wrongly introduced
Salman Khan as Sharuk Khan.

President Mahinda Rajapaksha's hooligans attack artists repeatedly in Sri Lanka

This video is evident for the situation in Sri Lanka ahead of President Mahinda Rajapaksha's seemingly inevitable defeat.

This set of mostly young artists who have named themselves as New Generation was brutally attacked by a gang of hooligans wearing T-shirts of Blue Brigade led by President's son Namal Rajapaksha as they were holding a public rally in Kumbukgate in Kurunegala district.

The goons were led by North Western Provincial Councilor Kamal Indika.

Elderly vocalist Lakshman Wijesekara was flung on the ground and beaten. Young actress Samanali Fonseka, vocalist Kasun Kalhara and activist lawyer Udul Premarathna were also attacked.

Meanwhile, President's son Namal Rajapaksha was sitting abreast Hindi movie star Salmon Khan on political platforms in Colombo city with beaming smile. In one rally, the compere introduced Salmon as Sharukh Khan and Namal tried to correct him. (The video is shown below)

Rumors say that Salmon Khan is paid several millions of rupees to perform in President Mahinda Rajapaksha's political platforms. The opposition criticizes this extravaganza of the President Mahinda Rajapaksha in a time hundreds of thousands of people are affected in floods.

Another group of artists led by vocalist Jayathilaka Bandara was beaten twice at Eppawala in Anuradhapura district and at Hambanthota by the hooligans led by the regional politicians of the ruling party. It is interesting to study the body language of President's son Namal Rajapaksha in the following video.
