CITY-DM-24-9President Maithripala Sirisena has complained that, during a recent trip with SriLankan Airlines, he was treated to some cashews which were not fit for human consumption.

Speaking at a farmers’ event at Hambantota on Monday, the President said the offensive products were served to him during a flight from the Nepalese capital Kathmandu to Colombo last week.  


“When I was returning from Nepal, they served some cashew nuts on the plane. Let alone humans, even dogs can’t eat those cashews. Who approved the cashew? Who is responsible for this?” he asked.  


Meanwhile, a spokesman for the SriLankan Airlines said its  management has taken steps to rectify the issue.
