"Wijeyadasa should resign if he has any self-respect: SF

20 August 2017 10:51 pm - 27     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Regional Development Minister Sarath Fonseka was of the view that Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe should resign if he had an iota of self-respect.

He said the UNP Working Committee has already condemned the conduct of Minister Rajapakshe, and therefore he should resign from his post immediately.

He was responding to a question posed to him by the media after attending an event in Kelaniya on Saturday (19). Field Marshal Fonseka said Mr. Rajapakshe had become a stumbling block to the government's efforts to bring fraudsters to book.

“If he resigned, the process can be expedited,” he said

    People who have self respect do not prostitute their respect to politics.

    The Government should not give this important job to another crook

    Lion Viswanathan Monday, 21 August 2017 04:01 PM

    Wijedasa is the main crook playing double game.

    We are fully in agreement - he should go if he has any self-respect. But then does he have any of that ?

    How to believe these ... Defeated persons are in the parliament and possessing ministerial positions..this is not what the public expected from the elections... the elected members are asked to go home by the non elected members...what a joke ...

    People with self-respect do not hold minister posts once they were rejected by the voters.

    Clement Perera Monday, 21 August 2017 05:31 PM

    Sarath Fonseka is speaking about his self-respect. He was defeated in the parliamentary elections. If he had at 1% of self-respect he would not have accepted that port-folio, and a seat in parliament through national list.

    Peter Monday, 21 August 2017 05:55 PM

    Hon. SF, Didn't you still get the 800 million rupees hold by the court? If that so please force him to resign.

    Peter Monday, 21 August 2017 06:12 PM

    The President has the power, authority, to fire his ministers in case it deems necessary. Be brave and do not find excuses not to fire Jutice Minister Wijadasa who is implicated in many crimes of the state.

    Vaj Monday, 21 August 2017 06:56 PM

    Like the pot calling kettle black!If I had self respect I will never enter the parliament with mere 5000 votes from Colombo District.
