Minister of Water Supply, Rauff Hakeem and Minister Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen have engaged in a heated argument at yesterday's (Jun 05) Cabinet meeting.
 
A difference in opinion over the resettlement in the North had led to a verbal showdown between the two Ministers, a source said.
 
When the Cabinet met under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena, the two Ministers had criticized each other, it was reported.
 
Minister Hakeem had requested that he too be included in a Ministerial Committee that oversees the resettlement of displaced in the North.
 
Then Minister Rishad Bathiudeen had said that if Minister Hakeem is added to the Committee, he would resign from it.
 
However, following an exchange of words, the President had said that all the Muslim political leaders will be convened for a meeting to discuss the matter.
