* Sri Lanka Marxist party criticizes cabinet reshuffle as a move to please government loyalists
Tue, Jan 29, 2013, 09:30 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that the Cabinet reshuffle has been aimed only at showing gratitude to the members of parliament who have carried out the biddings of the First Family and not with the aim of developing the country's economy.

JVP Propaganda Secretary, parliamentarian Vijitha Herath told a news conference today that yesterday's Cabinet reshuffle was not carried out with the intention of helping the country's economic growth.

He observed that countries usually follow a scientific method in making Cabinet appointments in order to reap the maximum benefits for the country socially and economically.

"The only goal of this government is to show gratitude to the persons who work to the whims and fancies of the Rajapaksa family," Herath said.

He has added that the government through the Cabinet reshuffle has also wanted to sideline some members in the government while limiting the power of some others as well.
