ECONOMYNEXT – The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has removed Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera and Minister of Ports, Shipping and Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva from all positions in the party.

The party said in a statement on Wednesday (01) that it only professed to express support to the government in parliament with regard to decisions favourable to the public.
