When Mahinda Rajapaksa was leading the war like King Dutugemunu, Basil Rajapaksa managed the country’s economy like King Kavantissa, said SLPP Gampaha MP Kokila Gunawardena.

Kokila Gunawardena stated this while expressing her views to the media yesterday (02).

King Kavantissa, King Dutugemunu’s father, was not alive at the time of Dutugemunu’s war and this shows that Gunawardhana got confused Kavantissa with Saddhatissa, the brother of Dutugemunu.
