Oct 24, Colombo: The Chairman of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka Raja Collure has been removed from his post with immediate effect, the Media Coordinator of the party announced today.

A statement issued by the party said Comrade Raja Collure was removed from the post of party chairman following the adoption of a resolution brought by the party politburo to the party central committee meeting held at the party headquarters today (24).

The Vice President of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka Weerasumana Weerasinghe stated that Raja Collure, who is also the Governor of the Uva Province, was removed from his post due to a statement made by him regarding the teachers’ and principals’ strike.
