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
Presidential.

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.

Remarkable entry of the hair-to-the-throne of Rajapaksa kingdom of Sri Lanka

(February 12, Colombo - Lanka Polity) The eldest son of Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Namal Rajapaksa marked his entry to politics today wearing fatherlike white national dress instead of casual baggy shirts he earlier prefered to wear at a function patronaged by his father in Tangalle, in the Hambanthota district where Namal had sought for nominations to contest the general election.

The hair-to-the-throne Namal Rajapaksa needs to mark his presence remarkably among the Rajapaksas like Basil, Gotabhya and Chamal brothers and Chamal's son Shashindra etc. unless he wants to be sidelined like Nirupama Rajapaksa one day in future.

Nirupama, a radical member of the 1994 parliament, is the grand daughter of D.M. Rajapaksa, the MP for Beliaththa, whose demise paved way for D.A. Rajapaksa to be elected to the parliament to generate a brilliant Rajapaksa dynasty that reigned the Giruva Paththuwa for many decades. Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected to parliament in 1970 and slowly paddled to the presidency of the country. His politician brother Basil Rajapaksa, who was one time a youth leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party once crossed over to the United National Party before he left the country for permanent residency.

Mahinda Rajapaksa is the luckiest and the most brilliant of the Rajapaksas and his popularity is the sole source of power for the next generation Rajapaksas unless some of the members of the family who are blinded by extreme power will tarnish their future entirely.

“What is it like to be the President’s son?” asked The Hindu's Nandini Nair in 2007 from Namal. “It is not good or bad. I just try to be myself.” That was his reply.

Try to be yourself!

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".
