Thondaman rejoins Rajapaksa cabinet

[TamilNet, Thursday, 11 October 2007, 07:17 GMT]
Ceylon Workers Congress leader Arumugam Thondaman and four CWC members have rejoined Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa's cabinet Thursday morning. Mr. Thondaman and the other CWC members had resigned from Rajapaksa's cabinet in August after being insulted by Basil Rajapaksa, the brother of Sri Lankan president, using a racial slur.

Thondaman has been sworn in as Minister of Youth Empowerment, the post held by the SLFP rebel MP Sripathi Sooriyarachchi.

Mr. Basil Rajapaksa is now a Member of the Sri Lankan Parliament.
