No connection with Madhush - Lakshman Yapa

Parliamentarian Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena says that the statement made by State Minister, Nalin Bandara that his son, Pasanda Yapa Abeywardena’s wedding was attended by underworld gang leader "Makandure Madhush" is incorrect.

Accordingly, he challenges to prove the claim that Makandure Madhush was part of the wedding through a police investigation.

Meanwhile, State Minister Nalin Bandara, attending a media program three weeks ago, had noted that Makandure Madush had not participated in the wedding and he was unable to come to the country due to security arrangements imposed by the authorities. Parliamentarian Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena says character assassination of political figures without correct information is a serious offense.

According to the Parliamentarian, the claims that Madhush had been taken by a Defender to airports cannot be supported at any grounds and one can check CCTV cameras at the airport to verify such allegations.

He says that he or his son has nothing to do with Madush.

Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena requested not to make such statements through a public media and emphasized that only doltish characters do engage in mudslinging using false information.
