No reason to oppose no faith motion against PM: S.B

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has no need to oppose the No Confidence Motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Minister of Social Empowerment S. B. Dissanayake said.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said it was the SLFP members who proclaimed at first that stringent actions should be taken against the offenders of the controversial bond scam. 

“The attempts of the SLFP became successful and culminated in appointing a Presidential Commission to inquire into the so called bond fraud,” Dissanayake said.

“We, as a party have not yet decided whether to vote against or in favour of the no faith motion against Premier Wickremesinghe. However, we have to admit to the fact that there was a considerable decline in the economy consequent to the bond scam. Therefore, our support of the no faith motion is not one that is against the government or President Maithripala Sirisena but for the well-being of the country,” Dissanayake added.

    No doubt there should have been a massive bond scam under the last govt. We want all thieves caught and locked up.

    Hay man, don't act like a fool at this crucial stage. If you could remove Ranil, SLFP can bring their man as PM and in the next election - SLFP cannot be shaken. Who knows you will be the next PM.

    For heaven sake don't support Ranil, then you will be in trouble putha.

    Prof. L.R. Hendry Tuesday, 27 March 2018 05:08 PM

    Ranil did not keep up his promises catching thieves - instead he protected Rajapakshe family and his JO looters, he protected Arjun Mahendran... this is more than enough to send him off.

    Some people knew it. Some people have guessed it. Now it has become an open secret. Clue: SB has another middle name starting with 'O'.

    This boaster lost his own seat because of his big mouth and hoodwinking the people. Clinging on to the government and whilst enjoying perks and privileges he is in the game of back biting. We saw him openly endorse the 18th amendment and supported MR in 2015. I don't think he has the right to even talk about it,
