A group of Sri Lanka Freedom Party ministers have made a written request from President Maithripala Sirisena to take a decision on resigning from their ministerial portfolios.

Former UPFA MP Thilanga Sumathipala disclosed this a short while ago at a press conference at SLFP headquarters at Darley Road, Colombo.

In their letter, the SLFP ministers have pointed out that the reputation of the party is at stake if ministers started resigning individually. The party Central Committee should take a collective decision on the matter, the letter also mentioned.

The ministers have also pointed out that their objective is not to form a coalition government or a national government. Their intention is to form a Sri Lanka Freedom Party government, the ministers have said.
