President asks IGP to resign

It is reported that President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has asked IGP C.D. Wickramaratne to resign.

This was stated at a meeting held yesterday (14) with a group of parliamentarians of the SLPP.

The group meeting was scheduled to start at 9.30 am yesterday but it had to start at around 10.30 am due to the delay in the arrival of the members. About 65 MPs were present.

From the beginning, the meeting was very heated as the houses and properties of many of the MPs were damaged on the 9th. As they surrounded the president and expressed their grief, they severely reprimanded the IGP and the Army Commander, accusing them of failing to protect their property.

Accordingly, the President had summoned IGP CD Wickramaratne to the meeting at that moment and the MPs had severely reprimanded the IGP, sources said. They alleged that the IGP should have taken steps to provide them with more security and had strongly emphasized that the IGP should take full responsibility for this.

According to sources, the President has finally asked the IGP to resign.
