Sri Lanka Freedom Party Parliamentarians stressed that they need the resignation of the Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran. Plans are already made to apply pressure on the government to meet their demand. A letter, regarding this issue and signed by MPs, will be handed over to Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa this week.

MP Dinesh Gunawardane told the media that the much talked about 100 Days is over but, nothing much has been gained by the general public. “At least, they have failed to dissolve the parliament as they promised. Amendments to the 19th Amendment to the Constitution is longer than the original document,” MP Gunawardena added.

MP Kumara Welgama also addressed the gathering and said that the arranged meeting between the President Maithripala  Sirisena and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was postponed. However, he assured that it will take place soon. He also voiced his disapproval against arresting and questioning officials who worked closely with the former President. He said he was unhappy over removal of some of the SLFP Central Committee members from their posts, which they served in for a long time.

Meanwhile, The Nation learns that the SLFP has planned to go ahead with the proposed no confidence motion against Minister Ravi Karunanayake and most probably it will be handed over to the Speaker on Monday’ April 27.
