Gampaha District Parliamentarian Chathura Senaratne has requested President Maithripala Sirisena to remove Law and Order and Southern Development Minister Sagala Rathnayake and the Justice and Buddha Sasana Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa from their portfolios.

Because of these two Ministers the Government, which came to power promising to punish those engaged in corruption and bribery, had failed to fulfill the people’s aspirations during the past two and half year period during which it was in office.

“There are 82 investigations reports on Frauds and Corruption alleged to have taken place during the last Government but yet no investigations have been finalised properly,” he said.

These circumstances have led to loss of confidence of people. MP Senaratne, along with several civil organisations had requested the President to remove these two Ministers from their portfolios.

They have demanded for the change of these portfolios in the recent Cabinet reshuffle but those changes were not made.

However, he said that the issue would be taken up with the President again at a suitable time.(Dayaseeli Liyanage)

    Wijedasa is a worst serpent but Sargala seems to be a honest guy.

    Start from your father. Get rid of him before others.

    I totally agree that Wijedasa Rajapakshe and Sagala Ratnayake have to be removed by the President and they should not be given a seat in the Cabinet as well.

    rohani Tuesday, 30 May 2017 07:59 AM

    Honestly, the immediate removal of Hon. Wijedasa Rajapakse is vital. He cannot solve any untoward religious matters only adding more fuel to the fire.

    Hi Chathura - Get your father to stand with you in front of a mirror to have a good look at the real crooks!!

    Rexy Monday, 29 May 2017 10:00 AM

    Most certainly they deserved to be sacked. The primary objectives this government was elected to bring corrupt to judgment and discipline the society with good governance. Government has failed fulfilling both these objectives via DM Android App

    Very true Sir, please insist MS to remove these two guys as they are worst serpents than Judas.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 29 May 2017 09:53 AM

    Mr. Young Bullet (Chathura) you are 100% correct, W. Rajapakshe is protecting the culprits of the previous Govt. as we got to know he has pocket meetings with all those culprits who are under MR.

    yes, they have not fulfilled their duty,especially in investigating and prosecuting fraudulent activities of your father committed as a member of the previous regime.

    lkboy Monday, 29 May 2017 09:46 AM

    what about the investigations against your father?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 29 May 2017 09:46 AM

    They are having very close links with Mahinda and savings him and his men, they should be kicked-off.

    One Shot Ranjan Monday, 29 May 2017 09:44 AM

    Definitely putha these two people only protecting MR and his JO gangsters without adhering to the promises, hence these good for nothing fellows should be removed from their positions and treated as ordinary MPs.
