A new setting for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to address the nation was established by his media spokesperson Kingsley Rathnayake, only to meet a severe backlash over the violation of the Language Policy of Sri Lanka in the name-board, revealing Sinhala, English and Tamil in order instead of Sinhala, Tamil and English, the standard.

In response, Mr. Rathnayake has stated that the setting evident on Social Media was but a 'dummy' and the real setting will be launched on July 29.
