No-faith motion will destroy RW's Govt: JO

2 April 2018 06:17 pm - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The joint opposition (JO) said today it was optimistic of winning the no-faith motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe with the objective of neutralizing his power over the government.

JO leader and MP Dinesh Gunawardane said the the government led by Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe would be defeated in parliament on Wednesday.

MP Wimal Weerawansa said the Prime Minister would have to leave the government on Wednesday evening and a new government would be formed on Thursday morning.

“We have to remove the Premier first, then we can remove the government which is inefficient to the core. Today, the cost of living is skyrocketing, financial institutions are collapsing, strikes are everywhere and the underworld is raising its head again. This destruction is the result of the government led by the Premier,” Mr. Weerawansa said.

He said a faction of the UNP was also backing the no-faith motion and said the motion would be the first punishment given to the Prime Minister over the Central Bank bond scam. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    All what Wimal n others in his wagon say is correct poor UNP did not know how 2 catch these rouges n keep them in the cell. Also UNP did not know how to market themselves, they did not know 2 tell the public what they have done. No sooner these jokers come all the exports by the country like the fish to EU and all other items will be stopped and no more reduced fuel or medicine at reduced price. This Govt under UNP has done a lot what we r not told. White vans will be on the roads again.

    Hon. Dinesh Gunawardane, we would like to know if MR has signed the so called no-faith motion.

    Macro level summary would be that JO and opposition parties want to capture power at all costs. Not a single politician in this country is worried of the masses or the country as a whole. SL will never be a wonder of asia. We all know what MR did to us. We Sri Lankans have very little memory. Bring them back and suffer for many moons

    As a senior politician, do you want to create nepotism again this country. RW will win your NCM but you again and again attacked people mandate, Your NCM have MR's own political agenda. Hon. Dinesh do not pick the tails MR, you are capable enough to become a Prime Minister or President Please work for that

    This No-confidence Motion is a part of the Coup set by Jo-kers with their SLFP faction in the Coalition. Those who vote for the motion while being in the government would be in the dust-bin of JO as well as out of politics from 5th April.
