Minister Keheliya rejects Bathiudeen

Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said that he is not in favour of Rishad Bathiudeen joining the Government. He was addressing an event in Vavuniya on Saturday (3).

The Minister said that sometimes the Government is compelled to obtain the support of all 225 MPs in Parliament, but this does not mean that they will be accepted into the Government. The Minister was responding to questions by journalists with regard to claims that measures are taken to accept Bathiudeen into the Government.

The Minister said that he is certainly not in favour of Bathiudeen joining the Government.
