President abandons helicopter trip due to bad weather Featured

Bad weather forced president Maithripala Sirisena to turn back from his helicopter ride to Mulliaitivu this morning (25).

He was due to attend the opening of a laboratory at Vidyananda College, Mulliawalai in Mullaitivu and distribute land ownership deeds among the war displaced.

The helicopter was to take him from Colombo to Mullaitivu via Kurunegala, but the President’s Office said he had to turn back at Embilpitiya and return to Colombo due to unclear skies and heavy rain.
