Ready to resign if a need arises: Lakshman Yapa

5 April 2018 11:15 pm - 23     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


State Minister of Public Enterprise Development Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena today said that the UPFA members who voted in favour of the No-Confidence Motion (NCM) are ready to resign from their portfolios if a need arises.

He said the SLFP Central Committee appointed a separate committee to prepare a report on the Central Bank bond scam and that they voted in favour of the NCM based on the committee’s findings.

State Minister Abeywardena said though they had issues with the Premier’s actions, they never had any personal issues with him. (Indika Sri Aravinda)

    You cannot play a double game. If you have no confidence in your PM, you should leave. Especially as you are a back-door MP.

    Ruwan Fernando Friday, 06 April 2018 12:28 AM

    If you didn't trust the PM to run the country and brought an NCM against him, do you have no shame to continue to work under his leadership? Disgraceful!

    Mr Yapa, the need has arisen now, because you all voted against your own government. When did our politicians lose honourability and self respect as good qualities to have?

    Please resign!

    If he is honest he should not wait to be told to resign he should resign. He has to practice what he preached to PM. How can he work with the PM whom he does not trust. If he and his bunch stay we know why they are staying.

    The need has arisen to off load dead weights eating into public fund resulting in a loss grater than the bond scam and cannot be recovered. The Govt. has proved it has the necessary 2/3 rd majority without these personnel to carry out the mandate.

    Personal issues should stem from political issues and vice versa, that's the fact.

    It is true that you cannot work in a TEAM by opposing the leader.

    Prez. must remove these double gamers.

    Silve Mervyn Friday, 06 April 2018 11:10 AM

    It is so unfortunate we have politicians of this caliber. You indicated by supporting the NCM you have no confident in PM. Now how can you work with the same PM? Aren't you still trying to waste public money? Just leave and be honorable man.

    James Packer will offer you a job in Crown Casino in Colombo.

    What more need you are looking for you have voted for the NCM, pack up your bag! What a shameless lot we have in politics?

    Ronnie Bugger Friday, 06 April 2018 11:16 AM

    Go if you want to go. Who cares. See if the country would crumble without guttersnipes, all six of you.
