Namal Rajapakse follows father to Nalloor Koayil

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 August 2010, 01:00 GMT]
A delegation of government ministers including, Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s eldest son, Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa, have offered gratitude to the Saiva gods at the Nalloor koayil in Jaffna for 'helping' Mahinda Rajapaksa to complete the Hambantota Port project on schedule, the state owned Dinamina newspaper said in a front page article. The article pointed out that soon after the LTTE was defeated, the Sri Lanka's President, along with members of his government, had visited the Nalloor koayil seeking blessings to help 'develop' Sri Lanka following the defeat of the "terrorists."

Among the others who accompanied Rajapaksa Jr. were ministers Johnston Seneviratne, Dilan Perera, MP Dilum Amunugama, and several other state officials.

The government members had also sought fresh blessings to the government and the President for the future development projects in the pipeline, the news report added.
