President Gotabaya Rajapaksa Tells Govt MP’s that he never wanted Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa to Resign as Prime Minister and States that he Values his Elder Brother More than anything

The government group meeting presided over by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa held this evening ended inconclusively over remarks made by certain politicians.

The President has spoken about the current issues plaguing the country and allowed the floor to the others.

Parliamentarian Tissa Kuttiarachchi, at this stage, fired a few salvos at Dulla Allahapperuma for allegedly conspiring to remove the sitting Prime Minister. Dullas Allahapperuma reacted angrily, saying that he was not a part of such a conspiracy.

Prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said that Dullas wouldn’t do such a thing being one of his closest political allies. The Prime Minister said that he was responsible for bringing Dullas to politics.

Many speakers spoke against setting up an interim administration and said the mandate was them9SLPP) to govern the country.

The President said that he never wanted his elder brother to quit as the Prime minister and said he values him more than anything.

Arundika Fernando, who remarked that it was a family issue, was frowned upon by Chamal Rajapaksa.

Chamal said that he should not have dragged the family. Many members spoke against the idea of setting up an interim administration as a solution for the current issues in the country.

However, the President qualified his earlier statement by saying that if someone else could show adequate numbers, he would hand over the Premiership to him.

Then the Prime Minister said that he commands the majority in the House.
