The STF has exposed a plan to offer exercise books with the picture of ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa as requisites (Pirikara) to the Buddhist clergy present at an all-night Pirith Chanting at Independence Square.

The president’s office organized the religious activity with Sri Lanka Telecom as the main sponsor with a Rs. nine million spending.

'The Buddhist’ channel telecast it live and also sponsored the requisites.

The channel is run by Sambuddha Vihara which is a known supporter of the former president.
