Newly appointed Deputy Minister of Buddha Sasana and Democratic Governance, Tissa Karaliyedda today said his assuming duties on his post is yet to be decided.

Giving reasons for his sudden decision, he said his supporters had expressed their disappointment and opposition over his acceptance of the minister post offered by the new government.

“We never expected that we would be given minister posts in such ministries and subjects by the central committee of SLFP. I asked many villagers in Madawachchiya and all of them requested me not to accept the post,” Mr. Karaliyedda said.

He also said that he would honour the supporters’ decision.

    The Ministries given to you all cannot make money.If you like accept it or give it to a JVP mp.He will do it better.

    Thank you for listening to your voters.

    Current position is that the MPs do not consult the voters after they are elected to power.

    Karaliyedde is not listening to his voters but to his pockets which are asking him to fill them. via DM Android App

    hes thinking being a member of parliment for life time is better than being a minister for one time..greedy people ..all the politicians are same..specially wimal and udayagamanlila

    The only masses that support MR are a minority of the 58K he recieved. Dont be misled that the people want MR back. The 62K who voted him out just three months ago dont want him back, Infact we are waiting till he lands in jail for what he did.

    I salute you. This is the type of political personalities this country need.

    vajja Sunday, 29 March 2015 08:37 PM

    All SLFPiers who got into this cabinet will loose their seats in upcoming elections.

    Hiran Gunawardena Sunday, 29 March 2015 08:42 PM

    His supporters want him to be part with true leader MR not be part of GAWAPALANAYA. Lets see how much guts he got

    Cham Monday, 30 March 2015 01:16 PM

    Great.This is the way a responsible politician should work.You are a an example to others sir.

    Sarath Fonseka Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:24 PM

    CLOWN ! One who is greedy for power, if not he would have resigned and offered to SF... now playing bull and saying bull....

    Veda-mama Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:52 PM

    Why go around asking villagers whether to accept or not to accept this and that. Should not entrust any responsible positions to this dumb goats who can not make their own decisions.

    Vishwa Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:00 PM

    There is no money in that. He needs a ninistrylike trade, health with the oppertunity to get a commission.

    TONY Sunday, 29 March 2015 11:16 PM

    WHO CAN BELIEVE THIS STORY

    Mohan W Sunday, 29 March 2015 11:16 PM

    At least there are few hornourable Ministers who have some guts. Well done

    Wije Sunday, 29 March 2015 02:09 PM

    As a man of integrity he has taken a principled position. Besides his position is a reflection of the masses that are supporting MR.

    Amith Sunday, 29 March 2015 11:48 PM
