SF Law and Order Minister in two weeks: Rajitha

Cabinet Spokesman and Minister Rajitha Senaratne today said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had accepted the Ministry of Law and Order only for two weeks, and that Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka would be given the portfolio afterwards.

He revealed this during a meeting held at the Health Ministry this morning.

The Minister said someone who is clever and makes strict decisions should be appointed as the Law and Order Minister.

“Those who make double deals are not suitable for this post. Though higher-rankers in the Police Department are against the appointment of Mr. Fonseka, lower level officers are on board. Sarath Fonseka is a war-hero. Those who boasted about war heroes should accept that. The personnel, who robbed and killed, had also been venerated as war-heroes today. Ministerial portfolios are not forever. Those who are wavering should be removed from the Cabinet. The Cabinet cannot be finalized to satisfy the wants of Ministers. Appropriate decisions should be taken by the President and the Prime Minister and not by political parties,” he said.

Responding to former president Mahinda Rajapaksa who has said that the cabinet reshuffle was a comedy, Minister Senaratne said Mr. Rajapaksa used to reshuffle the Cabinet to teach a lesson to ministers.

“Even some ministers had expressed different opinions over the reshuffle. They may make such statements when they are not given what they expected,” he said. (Sujith Hewajulige)

    Provided, SF gets to do the cleaning up of both regimes without any political interference from President and PM. 'If this happens' my vote is for this government at the next elections.

    Please cancel all overseas trips of all politicians, until they get proper clearance to leave the country.

    Close the gates in time, when the horses are still inside the stable.

    What can the FM do when the criminals and their bandits were allowed to escape after destroying all the evidence and covering up their money laundering footprints!

    Sathees Tuesday, 27 February 2018 02:51 AM

    Our politicians should learn to announce what they did, not what they are going to do!

    Citizen Tuesday, 27 February 2018 02:51 AM

    SF was rejected by the people in 2005 and he hasn't even won a general election ever since.The message is clear the people don't want him.

    fds Tuesday, 27 February 2018 12:10 PM

    Scared??

    Ruwan Tuesday, 27 February 2018 02:52 AM

    SF not fit for the job!

    Truth Tuesday, 27 February 2018 02:55 AM

    Mr Fonseka please go home and retire.

    GC Tuesday, 27 February 2018 03:41 AM

    Why is this childish way of (not) doing things when you should do things properly so that our younger generations, to whom you should be role models, can look up to you? Why did Ranil not continue with Sagala for two weeks and give this to SF straight away? Are you not confusing even the employees who come under the ministry? If it is really going to be handed over, why is Ranil appointing committees to tie SF's hands. Who could be fooling whom? I am disgusted of you lot and the UNP.

    Lal Tuesday, 27 February 2018 12:26 PM

    You are right.

    surath Tuesday, 27 February 2018 04:17 AM

    this is a very soothing news which we heard after a long time. We want to see him in the position soon.

    We knew that the post is for Sarath

    RuwanL Tuesday, 27 February 2018 05:24 AM

    We need someone as Law and Order minister who could be impartial and ensure that law and order function effectively. Not a bull in a china shop! SF is full of hatred and revenge! therefore not a good choice! He also has been accused of murder by non other than RW.

    Many would be upset, but this will be the best choice, for any body who loves discipline.

    Buddhi Perera Tuesday, 27 February 2018 11:55 AM

    Two weeks for the relevant files and people to disappear?

    GH Tuesday, 27 February 2018 11:56 AM

    Rajitha will undoubtedly JUMP to join the MR's Lotus Bud before the Presidential and General ELECTIONS are announced.

    Lal Tuesday, 27 February 2018 12:05 PM

    Great, this will work, but may be many comments since they are scared. But most suitable person in the patliment for this post.

    Yehiya Tuesday, 27 February 2018 12:21 PM

    Ranil not used. He is very professional to lead any type operations.

    TONY Wednesday, 28 February 2018 12:40 PM
