Will launch massive TU action against Prez’s decision: Wickramabahu

1 November 2018 02:32 am - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Nava Sama Samaja Party Leader Wickramabahu Karunaratne said yesterday they would launch a massive trade union action and a riot in protest of President’s decision to remove Ranil Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister and proroguing Parliament unconstitutionally.

He told a news conference that the country had plunged into a serious crisis and requested the President to restore democracy in the country by convening Parliament immediately.

“President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa were acting against the Constitution disregarding Parliament. We consider this a political coup,” he said.

He said Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa was the legal expert behind this and said he was clever at twisting the law. (Nimala Kodituwakku)

    The 19 amendment by Ranil is the constitutional coup

    If he is genuine why he did not talk about constitute in 2015 when Ranil appointed as prime minister while he only had 46mps? Bullshit isn’t it!

    Why your guys crying for Ranil? just go to the Supreme Court and challenge the MR’s appointment as PM than we’ll see the outcome

    Most unpredictable and ungrateful president we ever had.He said MR and his family is totally corrupt and won the election with UNP's support and now he is glorifying the person whom he called a rogue. Is he suffering from short memory? Shame!

    Your strength in Trade Union movement is questionable and it is unethical and illegal to take trade union action against consitutional right of the head of state.

    Massive TU action? By you? Lol. Can you at least muster 5000 votes from the entire country for you? If so, you can talk about a mass agitation.

    Oh great! Looks like every party wants to come out in the rain and play taking turns. What a bunch of narcissistic jokers we have for politicians across the board!

    Lol communists protesting to protect the rights of a capitalist political leader. Lenin, Marx, Engels please don't take this personally. Rest in peace.

    This was unconstitutional but UNP and its foot soldiers are yet to go to the supreme court. I just wonder why?

    Gemunu Thursday, 01 November 2018 06:10 PM

    Why go to the Supreme Court when the matter has to be resolved in the parliament?

    Hesh Thursday, 01 November 2018 02:01 PM

    Right! I'm sure the whole country will come to a grinding halt if koti bahu decides to go for TU actions.

    Do not under estimate Dr Wicki. Unlike MS he is a man with a brain.

    Gamini Thursday, 01 November 2018 06:08 PM

    We are so proud of Dr Wickramabahu Karunaratne. Great contribution and moral boost to the fight against unconstitutional injustice by MS.
