Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila has decided not to accept any Ministerial posts during the period of the caretaker government.

Addressing a letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa MP Gammanpila said former Cabinet Ministers who pledged their support to the President during the 2019 Presidential Election should instead be offered Ministerial portfolios.
