Milk packets: Govt. should take responsibility: JO

12 September 2018 07:16 pm - 13     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Joint Opposition (JO) today said the government should take the responsibility and resign over the incident where milk packets containing poisonous substance were distributed among the protesters of the 'Janabalaya Kolombata' held last Wednesday.

JO MP Dullas Alahapperuma told a news conference that the same government which came into power guaranteeing people to provide toxin-free food had mixed a poisonous substance to the milk packets that were distributed during the protest.

“We cannot point out our fingers at a specific MP or any other person. The government should be held responsible over this incident. This is not a political matter but solely a humanitarian matter. Accordingly, the government has no option but to resign” he said.

He said the Police had not taken any reasonable measure to arrest the persons who were involved in this incident even though they had provided the police with the vehicle numbers which distributed these milk packets containing poisonous substance. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    All conflicting statements. First and finger was pointed at a UNP MP. Now it's a different story. All you JO members are jokers.

    JO already supplied Arrack and Kasippu to the crowd that was brought to Colombo.Most of the people were with full booze.What happens to the stomach when they drink milk packet also.Definitely this will give some sort of problem.So Govt.has to take responsibility for this also.
