Jan 02, Colombo: The Chairman of the Bank of Ceylon Gamini Wickremasinghe said yesterday that the controversy with the President's son Namal Rajapaksa was not the cause for his resignation.

Addressing media at the headquarters of the Bank of Ceylon, he said that during the six years he led the Bank, it was developed as the best bank of the island. He also said that the Ministry of Finance has not yet responded to a set of recommendations he submitted regarding the future potentials of the bank.

He said that he would cover the duties as Chairman of the Bank of Ceylon until January 08th and would not assume any post though he had received a number of invitations.
