Rajapaksa’s ex-astrologer Sumanadasa on Auspicious times

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s ex-astrologer Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena yesterday said that there was nothing wrong with the auspicious times given for oil anointing for the New Year, but the westerly direction was inauspicious.

The former President has claimed the auspicious times were wrong.

"Usually, the West is not considered auspicious and the auspicious direction was north on the particular day," the astrologer said.

Abeywardena in his astrological predictions in late 2014 said that President Rajapaksa would cruise to an overwhelming win at the January 8 Presidential election.
