It is being told that soon a new interim government will be formed in Sri Lanka. With the removal of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, the resignation of the entire cabinet will also be taken. Former Prime Minister Maithripala Sirisena has given information about this after talks with President Gotabaya.
