Irrigation and Water Resources Management Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva yesterday said he was proud to hear that he was doing the laundry for his party.

“I consider it as a duty of the ministers,” he said.  “Some violate party discipline while some others are good party members whether ministers or provincial ministers.”

The minister said it was wrong for members to criticize the political party they belong to.

    It means that you are accepting your party is dirty and needs several launders to clean it.

    Ceylonese Wednesday, 14 August 2013 12:03 AM
