Co-operative Services and Consumer Protection State Minister Gunapala Ratnasekera has handed over his resignation letter to the President.
He said that despite Parliament convening, not an iota of a decision was taken to resolve the country’s crisis or provide solutions. He said Parliament has failed to find even a political solution to this country.
He questioned as to the purpose of Parliament convening if it cannot even take decisions to resolve the country’s burning issues.This was revealed during the debate in Parliament yesterday.
However, he said that the President had refused to accept his resignation, but said that under the current circumstances, it was not possible to work productively in his post.
“During the past three days Parliament was convened in a situation where the country is in chaos, but sadly nothing was done and no decision was taken in parliament to resolve this crisis.
We have all failed to find any solution to this crisis but since the demands of the public have not been met, they have reached a situation where they reject the entire 225.”
Therefore, he appealed to all Parliamentarians to unite and come up with solutions to resolve the country’s crisis and restore the public’s faith in Parliament.
