Sri Lanka’s Tainted Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara, on Wednesday, said that he has no intentions to continue as the Sports Minister for too long, after his party SLFP failed to win the No Confidence Motion few days ago.
Right after Country’s Prime Minister Ranil Wickramsinghe emerged winner in last week No Confidence Motion in parliament, the speculations of Dayasiri Departure were spreading thick and fast.
Amidst the ongoing tussle between his party and UNP, State minister Lakxman Yapa also stated on Monday that Dayasiri and all other ministers who voted against Prime Minister Ranil Wickramsinghe, would resign on April 19.
“16 ministers and MPs from SLFP will resign from government on 19th of this month” said State Minister Lakxman Yapa on Monday.
Dayasiri, a SLFP Parliamentarian, was the main architect behind the No Confidence Saga against the country’s Prime Minister Ranil Wickramsinghe. Right from the Rajapakshe party’s grand victory in the local elections in February, Dayasiri was trying to topple Wickramsinghe.
“He was in Australia. Rushed back to Colombo the day before the No Confidence Motion and was making strategies against PM Wickramsinghe. So, how he can be remained as sports minister. It’s a laughable thing itself. If there is a thing of dignity, he must resign himself at the soonest” a political analyst told Cricket Age.
“Look, he was the main contributer of the No Confidence Saga. Right after Local elections, he was trying to topple Wickramsinghe. He even Voted against him in the no Confidence. So, if he has no confidence in the prime minister, how and why he can be remained in his government” political analyst added further.
