"Short while ago, I informed the party (UNP) parliamentary group that I have no intention to retain as the Law and Order Minister further.

I informed the Prime Minister that I will not hesitate to sacrifice any position for the United National Party and I am prepared to do the best of my ability for the benefit of the party.

I further informed the party's parliamentary group that while this is a personal decision I take to strengthen the party at this time, my loyalty to the party will remain strong and I am ready to unreservedly perform any other duty in any other capacity given to me by the party leadership to serve the people."
