    Then let the Chairman remain, Sir - you better resign.

    Correct decision. The Chairman should remain as he came forward to take responsibility but the Minister should resign due to his inactions on the ongoing un-announced power cuts.

    The minister must be good at something because he just got a salary increase.

    This what happens when people enjoy too much freedom. Sri Lanka not ready and do not understand when you see these comments. The Minister is a fine gentleman with not a single reason to blame for his period with MR. The CEB Chairman is also another fine official.
