Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera should resign from his post for removing Customs Director General P. S. M Charles, the Opposition said today.

MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara said Ms. Charles had been removed because she had continued to investigate incidents of smuggling at Customs, irking some individuals.

“By reinstating Ms. Charles, Minister Samaraweera has admitted that it was wrong to remove her from the post of Customs Director General. The work-to-rule campaign launched by the Customs workers against this move resulted in a loss of over Rs.1,000 billion to the state,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Even if their demand is mixed with hypocrisy, I still agree with it. We know very well the caliber of their DG's !

    How come this fellow was mum when Supreme Court defined Mahinda as PM was illegal and Sirisena had violated the constitution.

    She should head the Customs till this regime is in power and if possible beyond. We need officers of this caliber more in no time Sri Lanka will be a paradise

    not only this ponnaya but all 3 ponnayas and the whole cabinet should resign - its only now they want a strong government and seeking to increase the cabinet - all this time omissions and commissions and foreign trips were their priority. enjoy while the sun shines. the voters should reject all UNP, SLFP and SLPP candidates in future.
