Minister of Trade Bandula Gunawardena says is prepared to retire from politics, if anyone can prove that he had committed financial fraud or swindle funds of the Lanka Sathosa or from any other state institutions.
Speaking in Parliament today, Minister Gunawardena said none of his family members are not involved in such frauds as claimed by some factions.
He said if anyone can prove such allegations with evidence, then he will retire from politics.
Minister Gunawardena said he is not engaged in politics to commit fraudulent activities and secure commissions.
The Minister said he should be judged on the basis of his conduct and not based on mere allegations.
Minister of Trade Bandula Gunawardena was responding to allegations that the former Executive Director of the Consumer Affairs Authority had resigned after he levelled threats over the importation of stock of garlic.
