The joint government in a political crisis due to mass displeasure and the growth of the Rajapakse gang and parties of govt have begun to condemn the cabinet reshuffle.
Although Ranil-Mithree tried to overcome the crisis through a cabinet reshuffle, other political members have opposed openly. Champika Ranawaka has expressed his displeasure over the suppression, and he further stated that he is willing to take part in a group of democratic parties in the UNP and the SLFP with a progressive path forward. The Minister expressed his views for the journalists after the ‘Chinese New Year Festival’ held at the Independence Square, Colombo. He further said that the government is boasting of changes but doing nothing for it
