Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne maintained that it was he and a few others that had helped form this government and therefore asked how Labour and Trade Union Relations Minister John Seneviratne could call for his removal from the post of Cabinet spokesman.

Dr. Senaratne said that he did not believe in double standards.“I do not have double standards. I am loyal to the government,” he said making his remarks to the media in Anuradhapura.

He said Mr. Seneviratne had been critical of him during the last Cabinet meeting in his absence. “If I were there, he would not have said it. I speak with responsibility. I spoke with the blessings of the President,” he said.(Athula Bandara)

    Rajitha is one of those broad minded politician in the government. He has no communal or religious bias. We stand by him

    sam Friday, 12 May 2017 11:38 AM

    John you are nothing with Rajitha. What you have done for this country? Rajitha is the main man for this government. Instead of taking him out why don't you leave. You were in the CPOE. Where is the results in all inquiries. Nothing. So don't talk too much.

    John was his J O master's voice when he said that. Remove him not by bullet if not by ballet.

    John Senevirathne did not do a thing to bring this government to power, instead he tried to bring former Big guy to power defeating current president. Therefore, John has no right to accept a ministerial portfolio in this government, it's a shame on him.

    Kumara Dharmarathne Monday, 08 May 2017 11:15 AM

    We need people like you with a backbone in the government. Let John Senevirathne go and join JO so that he can foment and comfort Rajapaksas.

    Praba Monday, 08 May 2017 09:42 AM

    Very true. No one can remove you. Even if voters sent you out you fellows will come back from the list and remain.as our leaders.

    ANTON Monday, 08 May 2017 11:12 AM

    DOCTOR, I CAN PROPOSE A SIMPLE ANSWER FOR THIS, HE IS TRYING TO REMOVE YOU, YOU TRY TO REMOVE HIS COUPLE OF TEETH, THAT IS YOUR PROFESSION.

    John is a mushroom born to yesterdays rain, unlike Dr. Rajitha.

    Desmond Jeromme Monday, 08 May 2017 10:42 AM

    Praba please don't utter filth. Dr. Rajitha is the main man to form this Govt. and not John Seneveratne.
