Rohitha Rajapaksa promises PM's office for Kurunegala

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa's son Rohitha Rajapaksa promised a Prime Minister's Office for the Kurunegala district after the next Parliamentary election.

"I know all of you have one concern. Although the Prime Minister contests the Parliamentary election from the Kurunegala district, he spends his spare time in Hambatota. To resolve this problem, he will set up a Prime Minister's office in Kurunagala allowing the public to present their problems directly to the Prime Minister," Rajapaksa said addressing an election meeting in the area.

Rohitha Rajapaksa said he requested his father not to force to contest for election. "It is on that basis that I decided to address this meeting here," the Prime Minister's son said.

In another interesting development, the announcer at the meting introduced Rohitha Rajapaksa to the crowd as an "astronomist".
