Deputy Economic Development Minister S.M. Chandrasena took oath as Cabinet Minister for Special Projects before President Mahinda Rajapaksa at President's House in Anuradhapura yesterday.
He relinquished his post as Minister of Wildlife and Agrarian Services in September 2012 to pave way for his brother S.M. Ranjith to become the Chief Minister of North Central Province.
He remained as the Deputy Minister of Wildlife and Agrarian Services until he was given the Deputy Minister of Economic Development portfolio in Jan 2013.
