Even Dudley is unable to unite Rajapaksa family Featured

Even Dudley Rajapaksa is unable to unite the Rajapaksa family that is divided over Gotabhaya Rajapaksa’s plans to contest the upcoming presidential polls, reports say.

‘Lanka’ newspaper says Dudley, who lives in the US, had tried, in vain, to mediate in previous disputes between his brothers too.

It says the animosity between Basil and Gotabhaya is so deep that they cannot be reconciled.

Due to this family dispute, ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa does not show his face in publicly much now, the newspaper adds.
