Deputy Minister of Foreign Employment Manusha Nanayakkara has resigned from his portfolio a short while ago, sources said.
Tendering his resignation to President Maithripala Sirisena, he said he tendered his resignation in keeping with his democratic and political belief and conscience.
In the letter he said, he would accept the Speaker’s statement and accept Ranil Wickremesinghe as the legitimate Prime Minister, who has the majority in Parliament.

Regardless of what these politicians say back n forth, its terrible to realize that nobody cares about the financial crisis we are in right now. New notes worth 1500 million have been printed just to pump cash to MP's and SL must pay $1.7 billion to world bank end of this year. (Dec 2018). on the verge of becoming GREECE in 2009. Yet MS talks about butterflies. Damn!

SL has a long way to go for a mature political culture. It's unfortunate to have politicians with this caliber as people's representatives.

It is more than obvious that politically we are not matured. We follow gutter politics. That is why the ethnic problem not solved. See UK. They sorted out Northern Ireland problem with matured decent negotiations. Our politicians think that giving greater autonomy will divide the country. What nonsense. It gives more respect,mature understanding and unity between both community. The majority should understand that Tamil speaking people are Sri Lankans. They cannot say they are Dravidians in North and east and Arians in South even now. It's Sinhalese speaking and Tamil speaking. In hundred years we might have Chinese soaking community as well in Hambantota district. Grow up politicians. Settle this issue once and for all for country to develop.

When UNPers crosses it's for the money. When SLFPer crosses it's for the moral sense. Truly there's a double standard here. Either way, it's wrong. People did not vote for them to take such decisions.
