Susil Premajayantha, who was stripped of his state ministerial portfolio today (January 04), says he intends to return to his legal profession.

The former State Minister of Education Reforms, Open Universities and Distance Learning Promotion made this remark speaking to the media following his dismissal.

Responding to queries, Premajayantha said he learned of his dismissal through media reports.

“This is nothing big. I first became a minister in 2000, right after [I] entered the parliament. I have worked under three presidents. I have a profession. I’ll return to that from tomorrow, to the court.” Premajayantha continued.
