Prez shoots downs claims of a SL/India bridge


President Maithripala Sirisena says that discussions were not held with regard to the construction of a bridge which would span between Talaimannar and Sri Lanka.

The President said that he strongly refutes such false statements made to tarnish the reputation of the government.

The President said so while participating at a religious function held at the Ganemulla Buddhist Temple in Thalawatugoda yesterday.
