Parliamentarian Sagara Kariyawasam, Secretary General of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna said that his party is deeply worried due to the amendment of the Cabinet made by the President today (23). While attending a news conference, he mentioned that the President should not have taken that decision and that a decision will be taken in the future.
” False allegations made against the helth minister. It all turned out to be a lie. But the President may have decided that it is better to make some changes in this regard. Accordingly, Ramesh Pathirana, who is a doctor by profession, has been appointed as the Minister of Health.
However, we have some concerns. We informed the President about that. Because the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna gives the power to the President in Parliament to lead the government. The majority of members of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna provide this energy. There are only 05 members of Sri Lanka Freedom Party. But we are not happy that a ministerial position has been removed from here and given to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and a new state ministerial position has been given to it. We as a party strongly protest against that.”
