It is reported that a group of members of the ruling party are forcing Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe to resign from the post of Sports Minister.
The group of MPs have told the president to dismiss the sports minister, but he has not agreed. According to political sources, President Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that the situation has not gone so far as to remove the minister.
He informed earlier that after suspending the Sri Lanka Cricket Institute and appointing an interim committee, the President told him to remove the gazette and that he would not remove the gazette.
Minister Roshan Ranasinghe has said that he will only prepare if the President asks him to resign. Meanwhile, opposition leader Sajith Premadasa also said last week that the door of Samagi Jana Balavega is open to Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe at any moment.
