All politicians have their supporters and admirers. Indeed, one cannot hope to be called a ‘politician’ without such people. However, there are times when some of these supporters let their enthusiasm get the better of them. Our staff photographer captured one such occasion in Borella, where some supporters of newly appointed Deputy Minister of Skills Development and Vocational Training Thilanga Sumathipala, chose to also bestow the Colombo District MP with a ‘Professorship’ in addition to his deputy ministerial portfolio.
