At a time when a national government headed by the President and the Prime Minister is in operation, the action taken by a group of opposition MPs to table a No Confidence Motion against the Prime Minister can never be condoned, said Most Ven. Galagama Sri Aththadassi Mahanayake Thera of the Asgiriya Chapter.
“No sane or level headed person will resort to such lowly acts like tabling a No Confidence Motion at a time like this,” Thera said. The country needs an opposition acting for the country’s progress without sheer greed for power, the Mahanayake Thera said.
The prelate expressed these views when Plantation Industries Minister Lakshman Kiriella called on him at the temple in Kandy and received his blessings last morning.
The Mahanayake Thera said the country would stand to gain and no foreign country would be able to harm its image or take it to task if the two main parties joined hands and worked in unison.
He said a newly elected government should be allowed a reasonable space of time to implement its policies for the good of the country.
Minister Kiriella said the UNHRC was due to take up certain proposals regarding Sri Lanka after September and if a common policy was adopted by the two parties regarding the issue, most of the problems could be amicably settled in favour of the country.
