Vote on Account approved by the Cabinet for Rs 1,735 billion was illegal as there was no Cabinet functioning in the country at the moment, UNP MP and Former Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake said today.

Mr Karunanayake told a media briefing that the move by the Cabinet to approve a Vote on Account was illegal as there was no Cabinet and a Government in Sri Lanka at the moment.

“There is no Government in Sri Lanka currently as those who called themselves the ruling party do not have a majority in Parliament,” he said.

“We challenge those who call themselves a Government to show that they have at least 90 members in the House,” he added.

Meanwhile, UNP Spokesman Harin Fernando said the Yukithiya Wenuwen (Rise for Justice) protest march has been amended due to weather conditions and the requests made by others who wanted to join.

Therefore he said the march will start from Mahiyangana instead of Kandy. A theme song for the protest has also been composed according to him.

He said his recent statement where he said it was time for the old politicians to give up and make way for the young to take over was directed to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and not anyone from the UNP. (Yohan Perera)

    No point saying this is illegal and that is illegal. We all can see that most of the action by these people are illegal. Being the main party in the parliament, what are you going to do about it and how are you going to stop it before these mad dogs do more damage? Only way may be to force them out by one way or another.

    Do you know the reason for the alleged illegal government ? People like you have contributed to your own party's downfall ! Keep the lid closed to your garbage can and disappear for good.
