What SB laughingly said

Monday, 07 September 2015 - 12:27


Minister S B Dissanayake expressed his views about the appointment of ministerial portfolios in the current Parliament, at Kandy.

He stated that it is an act of justice that Sampanthan was offered the post of Opposition Leader.

S B Dissanayake - Minister of Social Empowerment and Welfare

It is a good example of Democracy that the Opposition leadership goes to the next main party when the two main parties have agreed upon a national government. I call that discipline. So the TNA leader got the Opposition Leadership. Also the next party-the JVP got the post of Chief Opposition Whip. This is indeed a good aspect. Yet if it is observed that more harm is occurring due to certain posts and that they are a threat to the unity of the country, we can convey in written form that they are a threat to national security and make changes in the future. MP Sampanthan on receiving the post of Opposition leader stated that he will be working as Opposition Leader on behalf all races -  Sinhalese, Tamil Muslim and Male. This is indeed a great saying.
