Thrilled at his son being remanded!

The former president has spoken very highly about his eldest son, Lakshman Namal Rajapaksa, being remanded. He has told a friend, “Going inside is like getting a degree. My father had been in remand custody. I had been in remand custody for a long time. To say the least, I attended my mother’s funeral while in remand custody. Two of my three sons have been in remand custody like their father and grandfathers did. I do not mind even if my wife and the youngest too, get remanded.”

“All those around me were conspirators. Had I listened to what my sons said, I would still have been the president. Hereafter, I will only listen to what Namal says. He may be young, but he has a very good political knowledge. One day, he will reach my position. When compared with Namal, Gota and Basil are still in the Montessori.”

What his friends are telling among themselves about what Mahinda Rajapaksa is saying these days is, “If not for his sons, the boss would still have been the president.”
