Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Ravi Karunanayake, who resigned from his post yesterday (10), was seen sitting in the back row of the sitting area assigned to government MPs just after announcing his resignation.  

“I will be a back-bencher in the government from today,” he said before walking towards the rear section and taking a seat next to MP Ajith Mannaperuma.   


All members from the government side were seen shaking hands with Karunanayake after he sat down in the back row with them.
