    An effort by the opposition to disrupt the no-confidence motion brought by the opposition!

    A heated situation arose today in the parliament chamber protesting against the arrest of 8 people who were conducting a puja at the Sivangovil Vadikkinarimalai Hindu temple in Vavuniya and filing a case before the court.

    Today (19) morning, after the parliamentary proceedings started under the chairmanship of the Deputy Speaker, a group of members of the Tamil National Alliance staged a protest in the middle of the chamber by displaying placards.

    Due to this, the work of the chamber was interrupted for several minutes.

    After the Prime Minister said that he was ready to give the Parliament the opportunity to present the problem that was causing the protest, the Deputy Speaker allowed them to present the problem.

    Accordingly, Member of Parliament Mr. Charles Nirmalanathan said that 8 people who went to worship the temple in question have been arrested and ‘falsely charged’.

    In the request for their release, the Minister of Justice said that he may not pressurize the government by demanding the release of the suspects in connection with a case pending before the court, and that an impartial investigation will be carried out on the arrest.

    However, due to further obstruction, the Justice Minister said, ‘Today’s date has been reserved for a motion of no confidence brought by the opposition. Today is the day of the opposition. Why are you disrupting the motion you all brought? Present this and carry forward this debate to achieve your goal.’

    The debate on the motion of no confidence against Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena will be held today (19).

    The motion of no confidence was brought by the opposition led by Samagi Jana Balawega, accusing the speaker of violating the constitution while passing the online bill.

    Accordingly, the debate will be held today from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm and tomorrow (20) from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.

    The vote related to the no-confidence motion is scheduled to be held tomorrow at 4.30 pm.
