COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) - Some members have embarked on an endeavor to hand over a motion to Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana calling for the appointment of a select committee to probe the cricket crisis, Daily Mirror learns.
Commenting on the matter, MP Dayasiri Jayasekera told Daily Mirror that around ten members have already signed it. Members of Uttara Lanka Sahabaga led by Wimal Weerawansa, the group led by MP Dullas Alahapperuma are backing the motion according to him.
MP Jayasekera refused the claim made by the Leader of the Opposition a select committee could be an effort to sweep the issue under the carpet. “ It is a foolish idea on the part of the opposition leader,” he said.
Leader of the House Prasanna Ranatunga told Parliament on Saturday that a select committee would be welcomed by the government. Mr. Premadasa who responded said such a move would sweep the issue under the carpet.
