MR leaves Temple Trees


Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa left Temple Trees this morning (10).

Rajapaksa tendered his resigned yesterday (09), after violent protests erupted at Galle Face, Temple Trees and several locations across Colombo and other cities.

The unrest began when mobs of pro-government supporters brutally attacked peaceful protesters at both the MynaGoGama protest site outside Temple Trees and the GotaGoGama protest site at Galle Face.

The PM’s resignation was later notified in an Extraordinary Gazette issued by President Rajapaksa.
