Minister Udaya Gammanpila today wrote to the Editor of the Hansard over an alleged distortion of the Parliamentary Affairs on November 14.

The Opposition MPs handed over a No-Confidence Motion to the Speaker on November 14 and Speaker announced that the motion was passed.

In a letter to the Editor, the Minister said what had happened on November 14 after the debate on the No-Confidence Motion was held, should be reported as of Speaker saying he would take up the vote by voice.

“Speaker also said there was no majority for the new Government. In his words, the Speaker said ‘There is no majority for that’.

However, the phrase ‘There is no majority for that’ has been altered as ‘There is no majority for them’.

Meanwhile, a new phrase ‘The motion is carried’ had also been included,” he said in the letter.

He requested the Editor to look into these ‘Alterations’ and to make necessary amendments to the Hansard.(Lahiru Pothmulla)

    There is no point on commenting as the entity "Minister Gammanpila" itself is illegal.

    So you want actio "over an alleged distortion." But it is you and Weerawansa and Mahindananda, all hauled up in Courts, and who regularly distort facts at media briefings.

    This donkey knows only to rob (the Australian). He does not know the procedure, He cannot write to the Editor direct. He has to bring to the notice of the Speaker whatever correction required, if any, and request the correction. This letter will definitely go in to the dust bin.

    He had better write to his mother and ask her to sleep with him when the father is not home.
