Gotabaya Rajapaksa Makes Public Appearance at former Viyathmaga Colleague’s Book Launch

Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who has largely kept a low profile since his removal from office last year, made a public appearance at the launch of the book 'Managing Mindfully' written by Indika Liyanahewage, Chairman of the Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association. The event took place amidst the presence of several notable political figures and supporters.

Indika Liyanahewage, a former member of Viyathmaga, an organization that supported Gotabaya Rajapaksa during his presidency, authored the book, which focuses on mindful management practices. The launch of the book provided an opportunity for Rajapaksa to engage with his supporters and address the gathering.

Former President Rajapaksa's presence at the event marked a significant departure from his limited public appearances since leaving office. Following public demonstrations that led to his removal, Rajapaksa had refrained from attending public events or making high-profile appearances.

The book launch attracted the attention of several prominent politicians, including Dullas Alahapperuma and Nalaka Godahewa, who were among the attendees.
