THE RAJPAL ABEYNAYAKE COLUMN
(Rajpal Abeynayake, Attorney-at-law, was the former Editor-in-Chief of the Daily News, the Sunday Observer, and the English language weekly, Lakbimanews.)
Ravi Karunanayake resigned. His portfolio, that is.
It is an event that caused some political convulsions, but would cause many more. Probably.
Whatever remains of the legitimacy of this government is gone, or if not completely gone, is hanging by a thread.
This was not a mere scandal. It was out in the open, and the facts of the case were plain enough, for the ordinary man to see and decide, that egregious corruption was involved.
The events surrounding the resignation of the involved party from his Cabinet portfolio, were a complete disgrace.
