Mano, Hakeem say ‘no’ to new government

7 November 2018 10:38 am - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


MP Mano Ganesan today said that he and his five other Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA) MPs cannot accept the President’s invitation to join the new government.

MP Ganesan met with President Maithripala Sirisena to discuss about the present situation in the country at the President’s secretariat this morning.

In a Tweet, the MP said that they were invited by the President to join the new government. “But we rejected the invitation,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) Leader Rauff Hakeem denied reports that he and his party have extended support to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

MP Hakeem said that the SLMC will  continue to hold Mr.Rajapaksa’s appointment as inconsistent with parliamentary democratic principles until his majority is proven in Parliament.

    Ganesh Wednesday, 07 November 2018 11:17 AM

    Not only bad sign but also all the senior experienced politicians are going to face the music and the President have got bogged down in mud for the great sin he bought into. God is great

    I am glad to see not all hope is lost in saving Srilanka from this anarchy. Sense prevails amoung some parliamentarians .It is beyond belief the way MS, MR clan have been acting, as if they are they own the country..

    Hubert Wednesday, 07 November 2018 12:06 PM

    Mahi Wednesday, 07 November 2018 12:25 PM

    The perk is not enough it seems...!

    sunil Wednesday, 07 November 2018 12:34 PM

    Mano Ganeshan's brother Prabha Ganeshan is with MR.So you can see this politician is not sincere. Also, he is a big real estate developer having a company. they bought lot of land down Melbourne Avenue Bambalapitiya. It is interesting to see how these guy's become rich. Do they come to politics to further their business interests ?
