UPFA MP Nimal Lanza today questioned whether MPs Kabir Hashim and Abdul Haleem were sworn in as Ministers because the probe on Easter Sunday attacks had been completed or whether the one month deadline they gave was over.
Mr. Lanza was referring to the one month deadline which the Muslim Ministers gave the government to probe the Easter Sunday attacks.
“We would like to know whether one month is over or the investigations have been completed. We are not against them accepting the ministerial portfolios,” Mr. Lanza said.
The MP said he was referring to an mobile alert with regard to Kabir Hashim and Abdul Haleem accepting ministerial portfolios once again.
Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said it will not be possible to focus on the business in parliament if MPs raise questions on every mobile alert they get.
Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said appointing of Ministers is not a duty of Parliament. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)
