The United National Party (UNP) and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) have decided to boycott today’s budget speech, sources said.

UNP sources said the party was boycotting the budget speech while JVP MP Vijitha Herath pointed out that the budget speech would be full of false promises like last year.

“Therefore we have decided to stay away from the budget speech but we will participate in the budget debate and highlight the issues that affect the masses,” MP Herath said.

    Not impressed - shows lack of maturity and a disregard for your duty!

    They should also forego their allowance and benefits if they are serious.

    It is their duty of the voters who voted for them to represent the opposition and raise concerns if any. Opposition has fallen to such back bone less levels now.

    Better both parties boycott forever

    JVP has only 3 seats. UNP has many seats but acting like babies. If they are not coming for the budget speech cancel the budget and give the government to them.

    Its your bloody job to attend the budget speech whether they are false promises or not. Boycott your allowances as well.

    Their boycotting the budget is the shameless thing anyone can do.
