It is reported that the name of well-known singer, Mr. Rohana Beddage has been nominated as Sri Lankan high commissioner for Maldive Islands.
Singer artiste Rohana Beddage came into the limelight because of the traditional singing linked to Sinhala folk songs and he even made speeches to promote victory for Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. Mr. Beddage who was appointed as chairman of Sri Lanka Kala Mandalaya last January said: “We don’t need to lick the toes of each and every person … no necessity to depend on each person. We have done and finished those things. Our time is over. But we must appoint a leader who leaves a land for our children. I bravely ask you to cast your vote to Gotabhaya Rajapaksa”.
