Minister Tissa Vitarana has recently told the Lanka Sama Samaja Party Politbureau that it is clear now that the Mahinda Rajapakse Government is pursuing neo-liberal economic policies. Will this belated realization change his attitude towards the regime? Unlikely, say party insiders, as long as Mahinda Rajapaksa dangles the carrot of a Cabinet reshuffle. “Left leaders have begun waking up from their slumbers, including LSSP leader Vitharana” a party senior member told the Colombo Telegraph. “Many Senior Ministers are unhappy but are hoping against hope that come the next reshuffle, they will get some institutions or departments. So, the wait goes on.” he further added.
