According to confidential government sources, a group of state ministers within the government is contemplating resigning from their positions in the near future.
Several ministers have disclosed to Lankasara that these state ministers have reached the decision to resign primarily due to their cabinet counterparts’ failure to delegate any responsibilities within their respective ministries to the state ministers.
Despite conducting numerous discussions with the responsible cabinet ministers and even engaging with the President to express their challenges, no resolution has been reached to date.
While some cabinet ministers have provided state ministers with office space, vehicle privileges, and other perks within their ministries, they have not actively involved them in the ministry’s activities. State ministers contend that continuing to arrive in the morning and departing in the evening without any meaningful tasks has become untenable.
State ministers have expressed their disillusionment and lack of expectation for further discussions with the President. They have previously requested the President to formally define and allocate their responsibilities through a Gazette notification, but this has yet to materialize.
