Yahapaalanaya is about resigning once you get caught, announced the Government this morning following the departure of tainted former Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake, who has retreated to his once billionaire financed penthouse.
In an emotional speech made in parliament announcing his decision, Mr Karuananyake said, “I am resigning with pride because that is the only thing I have left. Good governance was our motto but the one closest to my heart is Disce Aut Discede, the latter which I have decided to do. I hope that this sets an example to other politicians that dealing with Arjun Aloysius is a dangerous game and he always comes out on top. Just like the apartment for which he paid my rent.”
According to the internet, speculation is mounting that MP Tilak Marapana who also resigned due to a conflict on interest is set to be appointed to the vacant position. Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe said, “Under the previous Government, no one got caught but under this administration we have achieved so much on this front. We also creating multiple job opportunities for people as a result so this will bolster the economy.”
