Why Piyasena Gamage boycotted the swearing-in Featured

State minister Piyasena Gamage boycotted the swearing in of the new state and deputy ministers.

He has told Ravaya that he had expected a cabinet position, being an oldest member of the SLFP and a contemporary of the president.

Gamage said he did not want to attend the oath taking as he was denied a ministerial position despite the existence of several portfolios.

He added that when he asked the president on May 03, he was told that there were no changes in the ministerial positions.
