The government today requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya not to publish the Hansards for parliament sessions held on November 14,15,16,19,21 and 23 claiming that the sessions were not held according to the Constitution, Standing Orders and Parliamentary tradition.

A letter signed by nine government MPs including Leader of the House Dinesh Gunawardane and Chief Government Whip S.B. Dissanayake has been handed over to the Speaker.

The other signatories were Nimal Siripala De Silva, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Mahinda Amaraweera, Chamal Rajapaksa, Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpila and Douglas Devananda.

They said in the letter that the Hansards for the above days could not be accepted and thus they should not be published. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Are they scared? There is no such a government. It was a coup and they will be punished and imprisoned soon.There is no need to wary.

    What a joke. These hansards need to be published in color with photographs. The are trying to cover their nakedness with a piece of tread.

    what is the need for the hiding the important information to the public?

    Really? So you want history erased I guess. Why only nine signed? Ask the cyber space to erase all the video recordings as well. Any investor now will look at the footage before deciding investing in SL with a bunch of thugs. Well there could be kudu mafia that will bring foreign exchange for business with your buddies.

    Hansard is already published. If the others request that the hansard must be published they will be again in the majority

    A bunch of cowards. May be worried about losing their seats in the next general election.

    They try to hide their shame with fig leaves. The whole world saw what happened on those dates, and not reporting in the Hansard is a crime. You cannot run the Government in secrecy while trying to protect the nation. These are historical records and shows your bankruptcy.

    Is this an attempt to fabricate history?? May be future Hansard will say Mahinda was always the prime minister and Ranil was as not even born

    Hello, rogue Ministers, please bring a motion to the Parliament and vote on it...

    Cobra Wednesday, 28 November 2018 06:53 AM

    Just look at the scumbags who have signed the letter!!!

    WHAT?????????

    Borat Wednesday, 28 November 2018 07:20 AM

    Why oh why! Because truth will prevail. These rogues have the audacity to even request that to hide the truth?

    Wise Donkey Wednesday, 28 November 2018 09:39 AM

    Where is the government? Is there any government which runs away from the parliament fearing being defeated in any voting taken!

    Wise Donkey Wednesday, 28 November 2018 09:48 AM

    We want to read the Hansards, why they are scared that the chili powder story also will go into it?

    Zulkifli Nazim Wednesday, 28 November 2018 10:03 AM

    In that case, we do not even need a parliament or justice system. Hand them all over to the Kangaroo court of Maithripala Sirisena and Mahinda Rajapaksa. That will be fine!!!!!
