Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe remained silent when asked to respond in Parliament today to calls by his Minister Dhammika Perera for the PM to resign.
Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Dr. Harsha De Silva raised the matter in Parliament.
He refereed to news alerts quoting Minister Dhammika Perera as saying that Wickremesinghe must resign.
The Prime Minister, however, did not respond to the reports.
Dhammika Perera had said that the Prime Minister as the Minister of Finance has no proper plans.
Perera took oaths in Parliament recently as a National List MP of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
He was later appointed as the Investment Promotion Minister. (Colombo Gazette)
