The position fell vacant with the demise of former Minister of Land M. K. A. D. S Gunawardene.
Amaratunga also holds the posts of Minister of Tourism Development and Christian Religious Affairs.

this another way of bribing. Why does Sri Lanka need more ministers? It is a small country. All government bribed politicians by giving minister portfolio that is not required. It is a waste of resources. Sri Lanka has higher level of poverty or there are many people who even cannot feed themselves daily
