UNP MP Patali Champika Ranawaka in a Facebook post said he had worked at the Megapolis and Western Development Ministry this morning.
MP Karunarathna Paranawithana and several government officials of the Megapolis Ministry joined the UNP MP, who continuously claimed that he was still the Megapolis Minister.
MP Ranawaka stated that notwithstanding what was going on in the country politics wise the projects launched by his Ministry and all the institutions coming under it would be carried without disruption.
In a discussion held with ministry officials he requested their fullest cooperation to see that this becomes a reality.
“Despite the present situation in the country I request all State officials to work towards the country’s stability in accordance with the oath of allegiance taken by you. Due to the current crisis in the country several nations have withheld funds due to us. However, we should work as one and overcome this situation,” he said.
Meanwhile, MP Ranawaka said that the Japanese Government was schedule to sign an agreement for a project worth over USD 1.4 billion for the proposed metropolitan light railway project this November, but had decided to pull out due to the current political instability in the country.

This guy is fooling his fans. He has been removed from the cabinet by the president and he has no right to enter a ministry as a minister. The constitution allows the president to do what he did, if not, deal with it legally, and set a better example. If president has breached the law and the constitution, file a case against him. Thuggish attitude will not quell problems.

It was a curse on Sri Lanka if Champika continues further as Minister.
