Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake says the move by President Maithripala Sirisena to appoint politicians rejected by the public was erroneous.
Speaking at an event held in Colombo today, Deputy Minister Ramanayake said the letters of resignation issued by the 6 SLFP Ministers will be rejected by the President.
The Deputy Minister stressed the allegation against the government is that it delayed bringing the corrupt to book adding that is why a law is being passed to establish independent courts.
He noted those who oppose the move are corrupt while claiming the public is aware as to who steals from them.
Deputy Minister Ramanayake meanwhile accused the President and Prime Minister of offering Ministerial portfolios to politicians those were sent home by the public.
