Namal asks SLFP to set example


Minister of Youth and Sports, Namal Rajapaksa, said he was ready to resign from the Cabinet of Ministers, if the SLFP sets an example by reducing its numbers in the Cabinet.

Addressing the media, he made this comment in reference to a proposal made by former President and current MP Maithripala Sirisena to reduce the number of Ministers in the Cabinet.

“If the numbers in the Cabinet have to be reduced, the SLFP can lead by example by removing its members. If that is the case, I am prepared to resign. I have no objections and will follow the example set by the SLFP,” he said.
