The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) today demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over the Central Bank (CB) Bond sale scam.

It said if the Premier didn’t resign, the party would be compelled to bring in a no-confidence motion against him.

“The bond issue took place in the Treasury, when it came under the purview of Prime Minister. Former CB Governor Arjuna Mahendran, who is in hot water today, had said that the controversial deal was made following the directions of the Subject Minister. Therefore, the Premier should resign,” PHU General Secretary MP Udaya Gammanpila told a news conference. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    PM only approved to call for bonds. He didn't know what happened till it happened and after that he tries to downplay it because elections were.near

    You should resign from Parliament because you have a case before courts for cheating an Australian businessman.

    Hipo Monday, 31 October 2016 03:44 PM

    For once you are right.PM implicated in damning COPE report. Steadfastly defends the main culprit. First we thought they were good faith deals. Apparantly we were wrong. You have to resign sir!

    The Prime Minister told him on the government needs of borrowing, not to help his son in law. How frivolous this man sounds
