Rajitha and Gayantha caught off guard at press conference

Cabinet spokesman Dr Rajitha Senaratne and co-cabinet spokesman Gayantha Karunatilake have been caught off guard at a press conference.

A video secretly recorded shows the two Ministers having a private conversion not knowing what they were saying was being recorded.

In the video, recorded just before the no-confidence vote on Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was taken, Senaratne and Karunatilake are seen discussing the decision taken by some Sri Lanka Freedom Party members to back the motion.

Senaratne is heard being critical of the Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thero and also making comments about Ministers Dilan Perera and Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena.

Senaratne is heard telling Karunatilake that he had advised the Prime Minister not to even bend down to the President.

Dr. Rajitha Senaratne also speaks about the work he did for the United National Party. (Colombo Gazette)
