Bond report omitted issues disadvantageous to UNP – JO Featured

The Joint opposition is worried by the non-inclusion in the parliament-tabled bond commission report of any serious issues that are disadvantageous to the UNP, prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe or MP Ravi Karunanayake, say political sources.

Therefore, the JO is carrying out a media campaign to say that the report sent to the House has omitted issues disadvantageous to the UNP.

Its MP Bandula Gunawardena has told ‘Irida Mawbima’ that the report was without more than 100 pages of its original content.

JO wants exact report given to the president

He also told the media at a briefing by the SLPP at Battaramulla yesterday (21) that they have asked the speaker to give them the exact report handed over to the president.

JO’s Dinesh Gunawardena will make the same request at the party leaders’ meeting and also will seek a House debate of at least two days on the report, he said.

No-confidence motion

Bandula Gunawardena also said the JO MPs have signed the no-confidence motion to be moved against the prime minister, but that it would be handed over once comparing it with the facts in the bond commission report that could be used as evidence.

A decision on the date of the handover of the motion will be decided once parliament sittings began on January 23, he said.
