Upul Shantha Sannasgala says that when he sees the L.B. Finance Headquarters near Liberty Plaza in Kollupitiya, he feels like “curse them”.
He said this while releasing a video on his YouTube channel quoting “Colombo Story – Land Chapter”.
While claiming that he went bankrupt due to the 2015 election, he claims he had a 60 perch plot of land near the Temple of the Tooth Relic, 4 minutes away from the Temple of the Tooth, Dharmaraja Pallama, next to the Kandy Lake Circle and close to Kumara Sangakkara’s house, during the time of his tuition classes. He explains how L.B. Finance acquired that land.
He said that he had purchased that land for Rs. 18 million having obtained a loan from HNB Kottawa branch at the rate of Rs. 300,000 per perch. However, he had mortgaged it to LB Finance and they took it for Rs. 25 million.
He said that it was Dilith Jayaweera who had put him in touch with LB Finance to mortgage his land and obtain funds for his election campaign.
However, Sannasgala who boasts in this video and makes various claims everywhere, said that he had mentioned names in this video with evidence in hand.
