@YoshithaR for assuming office as new Chief of Staff to Hon. Prime Minister
@PresRajapaksa,” the Chinese Embassy tweeted.

The Embassy said that bilateral friendship and follow-ups of recent high-level visit were discussed at the meeting between Yoshitha Rajapaksa and the Chinese diplomat. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. “No matter how big a hammer you use. You can’t pound common sense into stupid people.”

    It is very disappointing, because the Rajapaksa administration can’t find a Tamil person for the position of Prime Minister, Foreign Minister or Chief of staff. Singapore has been showing how to deal with the languages, religions and minority races, but the Sri Lankan leaders are adamantly refuse to learn.

  2. “The Muslim Voice” congratulates Yoshitha Rajapaksa
    for assuming office as the new Chief of Staff to Hon. Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
    “The Muslim Voice” wishes the very best to Yoshitha Rajapaksa in his new office. It is very encouraging to see young talented men in Sri Lanka being selected for such responsible positions in government/politics.
