Dr. Mahinda Pathirana, a theorist of the SLPP and the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Press Council, says that the resignation of the Minister of Energy is not due to the increase in fuel prices at this moment but to the failure of the Ministry to do anything until this situation arises.

He points out that it is especially problematic to buy oil from Singapore brokerage firms, which receive large commissions without purchasing oil directly from OPEC countries.

Following are the comments made by Mahinda Pathirana on Facebook.
