Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) General Secretary MP Udaya Gammanpila today opposed the quota given to the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) when allocating its members to the Parliament Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE).

He said the JVP has only six parliamentarians but they have been given two members in the 12-member Committee.

“We, the other 11 parliamentarians left in the opposition had only been given the opportunity for one member. However, the JVP had been given two quotas though it has only six MPs. Therefore, we request a reasonable representation in the committee. We should be given the opportunity to allocate at least three of our members to the Committee,” he told a news conference.

    Capable persons have been given positions. Others like you will have to wait by the wayside.

    Does not even deserve to be a municipal councilor. This guy should not be allowed to even speak in parliament and the news papers should stop giving any publicity to this idiot and even Modawansa.

    JVP is a single party with four members. His 11 came there as part of a large group, UPFA! That is now all fragmented.

    Good idea. We wholeheartedly support your proposal. It would have been ideal if you came up with this suggestion during the previous regime!!

    JVP should be given 4 not 2.They will attend meetings, come prepared and will also follow-up.

    Well said, Yapa.

    Why did you not tag along with Weerawansa to Europe and give our ears a break!!!

    You have no right to talk on this. You have already cheated an Australian Businessman and transferred all his monies to your account. You are a cheat.

    You were in the government for 10 years and what did you do?

    Absolutely correct.

    COPE was a non entity when you and your master were in power. Crooked as you are, now you want more place in Cope, why? Is it so that you can cover up your masters humbug of the past?

    Dammika Monday, 26 October 2015 04:48 PM

    Except you

    Shows the trust government has placed on red elephant

    This COPE committee will not speak a word on current governments corruption. You can see it when the controversial bond scam will be whitewashed by this COPE committee
