The joint opposition (JO) said today it was planning to submit a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in connection with the Central Bank (CB) bond sale issue.

JO MP Wimal Weerawansa said a decision would be taken at the JO party leaders meeting to be held on Sunday.

“The government should not try to close the ‘Bond’ chapter by sacrificing Ravi Karunanayake. It was Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who orchestrated this scam. There has been no greater scam than this which has made a severe impact on the people’s lives irrespective of their political views. Because of the bond scam, loan interests have gone up,” he told a news briefing.

The MP said it was the Prime Minister who wanted to appoint Arjuna Mahendran as the Cebtral Bank governor and added that the value of rupee declined against the US dollar as an impact of this scam. “The yahapalana government committed at least 60 robberies during its so-called 100-day programme,” he claimed.

    OH ! . See who is talking ! . If it is the BOND issue for PM it has to be a MULTI BOND ISSUE for you WW .

    Dhammika, everybody knows that allegations against Wimal are politically made and that is why those are dragging along. But Ranil can't escape by just directing finger at Ravi.

    it is a pity that one cannot bring a no confidence Motion against the majority of all law makers in the parliament.it is not only ranil, sirisena,ravi,etc etc who are corrupt crimminells but also you rajapakses and so on.why not make s.l. again a colony but the questtion is which Country.

    Is this panikkiya talking from his mouth?

    Pl. don't show your uncivilized mentality to the world by insulting others.

    Lord Wolfstein Saturday, 06 January 2018 01:11 PM

    Wimal, did you receive new orders from your godfather?

    surasena Saturday, 06 January 2018 01:32 PM

    Wimal is barking to the wrong tree. The next step would be investigation on BOND scams at the time of their Regime. The people would like to see Mahendarn and Cabraal behind the bars along with Ravi and then Finance Minister of MR regime.

    daham Saturday, 06 January 2018 04:48 PM

    Cabraal has already welcomed the idea of an investigation, because under the orders of Ravi the auditor general investigated and submitted his report to Finance Ministry. No any wrong doing were traced. Unpers can't escape by directing fingers to others.

    Ok will you please let us know how you have amassed so much wealth after entering politics.

    siribiris Saturday, 06 January 2018 07:07 PM

    This crook was always rescued by Rani. If not for Ranil this crook would have been in jail by now.Therefore, this "pus vedila" is talking through his rear orifice.What most people do not understand is how and why people keep on electing him time and time again??

    Before being proved in a court of law, based on an inquiry if JO wants certain members of the Cabinet and/or the Parliament to resign, what about all the JO members against whom so many cases have been filed in the courts?
