Wimal Weerawansa is a ‘mental case’ – Jayalath

by Zacki Jabbar

Construction and Engineering Services Minister Wimal Weerawansa is a "mental case", the UNP’s Deputy General Secretary Jayalath Jayawardena MP said.

Addressing a news conference in Colombo on Wednesday, Jayawardena said that the Minister was deliberately spreading a false rumour that a "UNP Doctor MP" had gone to Geneva to attend the UN Human Rights Commission sessions.

"The only UNP parliamentarian cum doctor is me", Jayawardena said adding that he had not left the country and was very much involved in the Local Government Election campaign, as the UNP’s authorized agent for Negombo.

"Weerawansa’s conduct was unbecoming of a minister. He is behaving like a mad man. Only a mental case would make such a baseless and malicious statement", the MP said.

Jayawardena said that he was a well known human rights activist and had always issued press statements before leaving the country to attend important events and was not scared to reveal his whereabouts.

He, also called for a Rs. 10,000 pay hike for the government and private sectors in the forthcoming Budget.
