Views were expressed on various platforms on Monday over the resignation of Tilak Marapana as the Minister of Law and Order and Prisons Reform.

Attorney-at-Law Ajith P. Perera, who is the Deputy Minister of Power and Energy, shared his views saying that Tilak Marapana gave his letter of resignation to the president as “a sensible, respectable and responsible politician.”

The Co-convener of Purawesi Balaya Dharmasiri Bandaranayake had a different perspective saying that former Minister Marapana should also resign from his position as a parliamentarian.

Leader of the JVP, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake, stated:

I t is not only Tilak Marapana who has allegations regarding Avant Garde.

He noted that the case on Avant Garde is being heard by the Minister of Justice, who too has allegations on Avant Garde.

Meanwhile a couple of demonstrations were staged in the Ambalangoda town on Monday, November 9. One demanded that those involved in the Avant Garde deal be punished and another parallel protest, expressed views in support of Minister Vajira Abeywardena.
