There was speculation yesterday that Sri Lanka Tourism Authority’s chairman Paddy Withana had been suddenly relieved of his position.  

However, when contacted by Daily Mirror, Tourism Promotion and Christian Religious Affairs Ministry secretary Janaka Sugathadasa said no such thing had happened and Mr. Withana still functioned as the chairman of the authority.   

However, he said there had been discussions among the higher authorities about appointing a new chairman.

According to informed sources, Mr. Withana had been informed of his sudden removal when a meeting headed by him was in progress yesterday.
