The no-confidence motion against Minister John Amaratunga, signed by 114 Opposition MPs has been handed over to the Parliament Secretary General a short while ago. 

The Opposition announced last week that a no-confidence motion will be submitted against Public Order, Disaster Management and Christian Affairs Minister John Amaratunga over his failure to prevent attacks against Opposition supporters. The Opposition MPs stated that Minister Amaratunga's alleged involvement in the assault on the Wattala Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman is further proof of their allegations.

    He was on the fence more tilted towards MR during elections. He is sabotaging the new govt.

    He should be sacked from his ministerial portofolio and not given nomination in the coming elections.

    These politicians did not learned some thing from their past political life. They are not ready to keep up advance political culture in this country. Still they are thinking about politics with power by using JUNGLW LAW not by human law. Therefore , these kind of politician must send back home
