Comments on Rishi Sunak.
According to Nuwan Jude Liyanage: “ We are a nation that objected to the appointment of Lakshman Kadiragamar to the post of Prime Minister and are praising to galore for the selection of an Asian, Rishi Sunak, as the Prime Minister in the UK! “We will never espouse a gentleman akin to Lakshman Kadiragamar. Will Sri Lanka be able to find a politician like Lakshman Kadiragamar? Not as a Prime Minister but as a human being….? It is the greatest folly Sri Lanka did to ignore this noble man.

Instead, he says: “Be careful before you call Rishi Sunak as Indian because he is one hundred per cent coconut. He emphasises that ‘ coconut is black and as long as any Asian who conforms to European culture at the expense of his ancestral culture, is coconut, who is dark on the outside and white on the Inside.”
