Vijayakala Decides To Resign From Ministerial Post Before Removal

Child Affairs State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran says she has decided to resign from her ministerial position. 

This comes in the wake of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe requesting President Maithripala Sirisena to remove Maheswaran from the ministerial position pending investigations. 

Maheswaran, addressing a public event in Jaffna recently, said the LTTE should be resurrected to ensure the well-being of Tamils in the North. 

Many MPs of the Government and the Opposition pushed for Maheswaran's removal following the statement.
