The Foreign Minister, whose purview under which the lotteries board was placed said, “This is the kind of innovation this country has been lacking for over a decade. I was one of the first ministers to introduce the concept hydrogen cars and now I will be launching a new lottery where anyone named Ravi Karunanayake can purchase tickets after the draw has taken place. It is in order to drive this kind of forward thinking that I demanded the lotteries board came under me.”
“There is a chance that even after the numbers are announced that I will end up selecting a ticket with the incorrect numbers, but then the draw numbers selected will be changed to reflect the new ticket. Basically, whatever happens, I am going to win,” he added.
It was announced that the letters in all future all lottery draws will be R & K in honour of the change of ministries.
