"My Removal Is Like Winning A Lottery: This Will Be A Turning Point In Politics": Susil Responds

My removal was like winning a lottery, former State Minister Susil Premajayantha said commenting on President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa's decision to sack him from the government portfolio.

"This will be a turning point in politics. I have served as a Cabinet Minister under three presidents since 2000. I have been the General Secretary of the UPFA for nearly 10 years. I have led the party to many election victories . So, we are not newcomers to politics," Premajayantha added.

He said those who are not even suitable to be employed as sanitary workers have been given important positions in the Government.

"The President can appoint or remove anyone from any position. That's not a problem. Our primary duty is to speak on behalf of the public. I voiced the sentiments of the people," Premajayatha added.
