MP Professor Channa Jayasumana claims that there is a plan to remove Dinesh Gunawardena from the post of Prime Minister and appoint  Mahinda Rajapaksa to that post again.

He said a group of ruling party MPs had asked him his support for such a move.

 "I have been informed by some of my ruling party MPs that there is a move to appoint Mahinda Rajapaksa to the PM post and they proposed us to support that," he said.

"The government should go home now as this is not the time to find answers for the prevailing issues by changing the post of Prime Minister," he said.

Prof. Jayasumana said they do not support this move.  

"Mahinda Rajapaksa should now retire from politics and stay at home in peace. He should protect any reputation he has left," Jayasumana said.

Jayasumana was part of the Viyathmaga group that is now facing heavy criticism following the failures of former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    Never mind. Irrespective of who the PM is, Dinesh or Mahinda, there is only 1 agenda... which seems working pretty well at the moment (although not for long..)

    MR testing the water it seems. Trying another 52 day coup stunt together with MS?

    And then,no confidence motion to be brought and Rw to be roved.This is power politics.Give a thought to the citizens of this country ,although the voting of the majority has brought us to this plight.Now I can see the new voting pattern that will drop us into a deeper abyss.We never seem to learn.

    Whether we like it or not MR and his Clans are going to be in power due to the Disunity in the ranks and files of opposition and the Venasa groups. Mahinda Ralla (wave) is a force to recon with.

    His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa has more work to be done for the benefit of Sri Lankans, his come back will SAVE the UNITED SRI LANKA concept and from being DIVIDED for TAMILS as EELAM STATE.

    Another retrograde step in Sri Lankan culture. Why can we not go forward with sense and reason and follow a Westminster style of government. Nothing but chaos can be achieved by reappointing these criminals to rule! They have proved unequivocally that they are only interested in their own redemption.

    This the best thing for the country. Mahinda is the rightful person for the position.
