MR rejects President’s claims on Nelum Pokuna

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today rejected the statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena in Polonnaruwa, that the foundation stone originally laid by former President Chandrika Kumaratunga to construct the Nelum Pokuna Theatre had been bulldozed.
