Roshan Ranasinghe said yesterday (19) that he had no intention at the moment either to resign as the sports minister or to join the opposition.
Speaking to the media, he said such acts would be a kick on the face of 6.9 million who voted the present regime into power.
If needed, the president could remove him, said Ranasinghe.
He went onto say the statements issued by the president’s media division do not necessarily portray the president’s opinion.
Letters of betrayal
The minister charged the president of Sri Lanka Cricket had insisted on a ban in three letters he had sent to the ICC on 06, 07 and 09 November.
Those were sent without approval by the SLC’s executive committee and they also ridiculed the supremacy of parliament, he charged.
