Colombo, April 5 (DailyMirror) – Basil Rajapaksa was finally spotted seated silently on his seat in Parliament today, after being absent for four months.
Basil was under severe criticism for being absent from Parliament while he was the Finance Minister and the country entered its worst-ever economic crisis. He finally had to step down from his portfolio when the entire cabinet resigned on Sunday night.
In recent days rumours were also rife that Basil had left the country and gone back to the USA. (Jamila Husain)
