Ministers Arjuna Ranatunga and Dayasiri Jayasekera have engaged in a heated exchange of words at the Cabinet meeting held today (29).

It started when the observations submitted by Minister Arjuna Ranatunga for a cabinet paper presented by Minister Jayasekera, were taken up for discussion.

The Cabinet paper is linked to a tender to renovate the artificial running track at the Sugathadasa Stadium.

Here, Minister Ranatunga has said although the Sugathadasa Stadium requires a running track, there are discrepancies in the tender.

At that moment, Minister Jayasekera has said that Minister Ranatunga is trying to play cricket everywhere.

In turn, Minister Ranatunga has accused Minister Jayasekera of trying to interfere with other ministries without working at his ministry.

Then, Minister Jayasekera has asked his Cabinet colleague to take over his ministry as well.

At that moment, Minister Ranatunga has said if he’s given the Sports Ministry along with the ministry he already has, he would accept it.

Then President Maithripala Sirisena has intervened to stop the ongoing argument.
