Ceylon Worker’s Congress (CWC) Leader Arumugam Thondaman is likely to get a portfolio tomorrow after his name was not included in today’s list of ministers, sources close to the CWC Leader said. President Mahinda Rajapakse is currently discussing the matter with Thondaman.

Sources said that Thondaman is likely to get a Ministry where he could do some service to the estate Tamils. “We wanted a ministry where we can work for our people,” sources said. (YP)

    It has already hit 40s and seems likely this will increase. What a politics!

    garawi, President has NOT broken the promise to keep the cabiner to 40. He has appointed 37 and he can appoint another three if he wants to.

    No more ministeries is needed but MR should give more representation and diversity in the cabinet. Not many northerners. Shame on you MR.

    Still the cabinet goings to be a Jumbo one. Again there might be cross overs and they will get portfolios soon after crossing over from the opposition.

    We cannot expect the change what masses have been expecting. It will like those days proverbs.

    IIt is indispensable to offer an appropriate portfolio to Mr. Thondaman. Of course, his charismatic commitments will fulfill the housing programmes for the estate workers to be completed within the stipulated period, which is a massive task as mentioned in the election manifesto by the president of the country in 2010.

    HA sri Lanka is good for single runs at Cricket. Now one by one the cabinet would be expanded. Befor November 2010 the cabinet would be over 100 including all the Ministers and Deputies. also Karuna has demanded a Minister's post from Gota and has been told wait for 24 hours. The Rajapakse company is very at the moment as Kehliya Mahathaya has gone to see the Mahanayaka's last evening , poor cry baby

    Obviously, this will grow up to a 100, at least, within the next two months.

    Friday, 23 April 2010 10:50 PM

    Here we go again! MR promised to keep the Ministers to a manageable number. The first broken promise!
