As the relief items were loaded and about to be taken to Kurunegala, the IGP sent a message ordering a halt to the distribution.
Munasinghe telephoned the IGP and asked him as to why such an order was given.
The IGP replied, “I say, this will not promote me. Where is my photo? Those parcels should’ve been wrapped together with a photo of me smiling. Without it, don’t distribute them.”
Becoming the police chief after serving politicians, the IGP has been infected with their disease and was not allowing even a relief distribution if that did not promote him.
Await details of the IGP’s having sexually abused a woman at the Devale of Gnanakka of Anuradhapura.
