Resigned ministers rejected Maithri’s principles: UNP

UNP parliamentarian and Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Ajith P. Perera today said the four Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) ministers who resigned today had done so to join hands with former president Mahinda Rajapaksa by rejecting the principles upheld by President Maithripala Sirisena.

He said he respected the right of parliamentarians to accept ministerial portfolios or to resign and wished them well.

“Those who didn’t contribute to President Sirisena’s victory and didn’t understand his principles may have issues when working together with this government. These parliamentarians had resigned to continue their political journey with their new master Mahinda Rajapaksa,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Very interesting. Birds of feather flock together. Now we can clearly differentiate between the crooks who lived it up under MR and the rest.

    by monitoring the situation they would have felt all future avenues for corruptions are closed and have to face the karma for past sins too. So no point of hanging and better to join same old buddy.
