PM’s office refutes reports of PM resigning

(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – The Prime Minister’s Office states that there is no truth whatsoever in the media reports that Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena would resign from his post.

“Furthermore there has not been any request or pressure from any quarters for the Prime Minister to resign,” the PM’s office said in a statement.

These false reports are aimed at causing difficulties to the government plans and programs, the statement further said.

The Prime Minister’s Office was responding to recent reports in several local media outlets that a group of ruling party parliamentarians are attempting to reinstate the ousted Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
