Industry and Commerce Minister Rishad Bathiudeen yesterday(23), rubbished rumors about his involvement to resettle Rohingya refugees in Sri Lanka.

The Minister filed a complaint at CID yesterday requesting to carry out an investigation into the rumors carried out on social media and certain websites and to take legal actions against the offenders.

“I have not made any statement in any place of the country about Rohingya refugees.Though we usually do not bother about such social media propaganda, since my name has been mentioned with this serious issue I made a complaint to the CID  in order to uncover the racketeers who try to create communal conflicts in the country” said Bathiudeen while addressing a media conference held yesterday.

“These communal conspirators come up in various forms, with various topics time-to time. Their sole objective is to create conflicts among communities by carrying rumors. However, the present government will give no chance for such to dis harmonize the citizens, who suffered from the brutal war for three decades” He added.
