Reshuffling: Only short term survival

  • All the Chinese projects, the Rajapaksas brought and the “Yahapalanaya” promised to close down, are back on track with harsher conditions
  • This Cabinet reshuffle will thus leave reconciliation and transitional justice in limbo
  • Public statements have blown off in the wind with Sinhala Buddhist extremism
“As Finance Minister I reduced waste and corruption and earned more money for the Treasury,” said outgoing Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake to BBC Sinhala service “Sandeshaya” the day after the much announced and much delayed, Monday’s Cabinet reshuffle.
