Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA) leader MP Mano Ganeshan yesterday said President Maithripala Sirisena has stated that he would resign from Presidency after making a State of the Nation Address, if he was pushed to the wall.

According to the MP, the President had said this during a meeting on the night of 3 December, when he held discussions with the United National Front (UNF) party leaders.
