Dr. P. B. Jayasundara hands over resignation letter – Newspaper reports

Secretary to the President, Dr. P. B. Jayasundara has handed over his resignation letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, according to two newspaper reports.

The Daily Mirror reported that Jayasundara has tendered his resignation after objections were raised by the Cabinet of Ministers who have also urged him to step down.

If Jayasundara’s resignation is accepted by the President then he is likely to step down in the first week of 2022, the report added.

Meanwhile, The Morning newspaper reported that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has reportedly accepted the letter of resignation handed by President’s Secretary Dr. P. B. Jayasundera.

The resignation letter is said to be around three to four pages long, detailing the obstacles Jayasundara faced during his time in the position.

It has been reported that Gamini Senarath, the current Secretary to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, or Anura Dissanayake, the Secretary to Ministry of Irrigation have been proposed to replace Jayasundara.
