The Crown was always hers : Chandimal
Pushpika de Silva was recrowned as Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World 2021 this afternoon (06).
Speaking in relation to the incident that took place during the finale of the pageant at a press conference held by the National Director for Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World, Chandimal Jayasinghe, Pushpika stated it is unlikely of her to hold grudges.
She added that she holds no hatred towards any person who attempted to dethrone her and that she has forgiven everybody involved in the incident.
"The past is the past", she said.
In response to a question asked by a journalist regarding Pushpika's re-crowning, Chandimal Jayasinghe explained the following;
"The Crown was always hers. There is no necessity to publicly recrown her, as she was not stripped of the title despite the incident. The first-runner up too handed the Crown over to the Organization later that night, and it went back to its rightful owner."
