State Minister Roshan Ranasinghe debunks Mass Media Minister’s ’false’ claims on Olympic Tour

Responding to controversy raised over touring to the 2020 Olympics Games, State Minister Roshan Ranasinghe said that he, together with several other state ministers, arrived in Japan to witness Olympics by personal expenses and none of the expenses during their stay in the country are being paid for by public or private funds.

In a statement, the State Minister emphasised that Mass Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella's sentiment at the press briefing held two days ago on announcing Cabinet decisions on them being funded by private institutions to tour in Olympics is, in fact, false.
