Cabinet reshuffle put off due to Ravi’s threat!

A cabinet reshuffle has been put off indefinitely, after a threat issued by finance minister Ravi Karunanayake, say Sirikotha sources.

Karunanayake has told prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe that in the event he was removed from the portfolio, he would sit as a backbencher in parliament and reveal many secrets of the government.

The PM has raised this with the president, who has now postponed a reshuffling of the cabinet.
