Vijayakala Maheshwaran decides to resign

 

State Minister of Child Affairs Vijayakala Maheshwaran decided to temporarily resign from her post until investigations on the statement she made in support to the terrorist organization, LTTE are closed.

She said this at a special statement which was broadcasted on national television, this morning.

A huge outcry was raised in Parliament this week on the statement Vijayakala Maheshwaran made regarding re-establishing the LTTE at a gathering held in Jaffna.

Furthermore, she said that she accepts that it was unlawful of her to make such a statement since it’s against the terms of her appointment as the State Minister of Child Affairs.

She also mentioned that discussions are still underway with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to determine a way to resolve this matter.
