Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) National List MP Dhammika Perera speaking to a political programme aired on TV Derana said he will be ready to accept a ministerial post that involves responsibilities related to economic development of the country.
“I previously held a ministerial position only for 16 days. Out of them, there were only 10 days to work. During those 10 days I served a work of two months, as I mentioned earlier. I am usually not the type of person who replaces even a clerk, am I? That being said, if we are leaders, we do not need to change people as such. We have to give people a vision that this is how it works. We cannot look for good people in the society, we have to know how to collect work from the existing people,” Perera said.
The ex Business giant went on: “I even told this President, that I am ready to accept a ministry of this government again, if it involves the management of this economic crisis. Otherwise there is no point of receiving a ministry without work. Even that could be a ten days’ work. But it needs the part ‘economic development.’ I have already informed them in writing.”
