Ceylon Workers Congress Leader and Minister Arumugam Thondaman has tendered his resignation from his ministerial portfolio Monday evening, informed sources said.
However, they said President Mahinda Rajapaksa had not accepted the resignation letter. It is learnt that an issue involving Livestock and Rural Community Development Minister Thondaman and a Ministry official had triggered the move.
Sources confirmed that the Minister had also returned his official vehicle after sending the resignation letter. Mr. Thondaman is also due to discuss the matter with President Mahinda Rajapaksa soon.(YP & AKA)

    He is not popular as his father in his own camp. He is no deferant to Wimal, Karu, Karuna or chimpa.

    Ramani Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:39 AM

    Stepping down is Thonda's bad leadership qualities. Must be a weak man to act in this way. It is good if he haven't got the skill set to carry on.

    Sinhala Baudda Monday, 26 March 2012 06:15 PM

    Those who read papers regularly know the self respect he has. Any government is better without this highly respected man.

    selva Tuesday, 27 March 2012 03:30 PM

    Take rest, you only raise your hand for the ruling parity, Tamils donot need your help?

    Nodrog Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:56 AM

    No...just another gundu from Thonda to get what he wants.

    kaputakukula Tuesday, 27 March 2012 06:46 AM

    Better late than never.

    Ravi Tuesday, 27 March 2012 05:41 PM

    It could save some money for TAX payers, I mean to all Lankans. I really do not know what sort of work he dose for the benefit of the country?

    Fusion Tuesday, 27 March 2012 07:35 AM

    Jayasri Monday, 26 March 2012 03:21 PM

    Great Mr. Thondaman. Anyone who can't serve their communities should take similar decisions.

    sam Monday, 26 March 2012 03:06 PM

    Junta Monday, 26 March 2012 03:35 PM

    sam Monday, 26 March 2012 03:26 PM
