This ex-tuition master, a faithful follower of the deposed strongman, held Ministerial office under the Betel leaf regime and now he has been returned to Diyawanna from the Colombo district.




Seeing his colleagues queuing up for portfolios on offer, this worthy also was wavering between two minds about following suit. Things were moving fast and he had no time to lose. However, he had to think of his self-respect. So he decided to go about it the democratic way.
