State Minister Sudrashani Fenandopulle said today, the Prime Minister’s proposal to allow the burial of COVID-19 victims would have to be implemented with the agreement of the Technical Committee of the Health Ministry.

Responding to a question raised by SJB MP Mujibur Rahuman, she told Parliament that the Health Ministry was not taking decisions personally but through a technical committee.

“The Health Ministry is not taking decisions personally. The decisions are taken through the technical committee. This proposal has to be presented to the technical committee and we will have to act based on its agreement,” she said. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Sri Lankans are turning to be like Indians who aren't trustworthy. Shame on you.

    No need to re-invent the wheel! There are guidelines already in place in other countries e.g. UK re: burial of Covid 19 deceased. Why not use this as a starting point?

    Too many cooks spoil the soup! A very funny drama has been staged!

    This will never happen. This was just to please Imran Khan who was in parliament yesterday who raised the issue of burial as well as the impending Geneva Human Rights conference. Just an eye-wash.

    Madam State Minister! Are you suggesting that the declaration of the Prime Minister based on your statement as a medical professional, has to be evaluated by a committee who has not taken a valid decision on their own?

    Is the technical committee so powerful that the PM has to play second fiddle? And you as State Minister appear not willing to follow the instructions of the Prime Minister. Where are we then heading
