Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne maintained that it was he and a few others that had helped form this government and therefore asked how Labour and Trade Union Relations Minister John Seneviratne could call for his removal from the post of Cabinet spokesman.

Dr. Senaratne said that he did not believe in double standards.“I do not have double standards. I am loyal to the government,” he said making his remarks to the media in Anuradhapura.

He said Mr. Seneviratne had been critical of him during the last Cabinet meeting in his absence. “If I were there, he would not have said it. I speak with responsibility. I spoke with the blessings of the President,” he said.(Athula Bandara)

    John you are nothing with Rajitha. What you have done for this country? Rajitha is the main man for this government. Instead of taking him out why don't you leave. You were in the CPOE. Where is the results in all inquiries. Nothing. So don't talk too much.

    It was said that big companies were behind Senakas death. We now can see how the same companies working behind to destroy Rajitha. Big amounts could be floating between hands. via DM Android App

    Rajitha is one of those broad minded politician in the government. He has no communal or religious bias. We stand by him

    Kumara Dharmarathne Monday, 08 May 2017 11:15 AM

    We need people like you with a backbone in the government. Let John Senevirathne go and join JO so that he can foment and comfort Rajapaksas.

    Abaran Wednesday, 10 May 2017 04:57 PM

    John Cant. But the voters can!

    Kumara Dharmarathne Monday, 08 May 2017 11:23 AM

    John Senevirathne did not do a thing to bring this government to power, instead he tried to bring former Big guy to power defeating current president. Therefore, John has no right to accept a ministerial portfolio in this government, it's a shame on him.

    ceylon Monday, 08 May 2017 11:26 AM

    john and rajitha are like sky and earth.john is has not done anything good and rajitha has done his duties as citizen and as politician better than any cabinet memeber except ranil. via DM Android App
