President of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Youth Front, Shantha Bandara stated that the motion of no confidence submitted against Minister Ravi Karunanayake was merely a measure taken by the Joint Opposition party to boost their popularity.
Addressing a media briefing held today (04), he added that although the motion of no confidence was necessary, it was too early to appeal to suggest such a motion against the Minister, and that it should have been brought once the Presidential Commission of Inquiry appointed to investigate and inquire into the issuance of Treasury Bonds has submitted their report on Karunanayake’s statements.
However, he added that if he was in parliament, he too would have voted for this motion of no confidence against Ravi Karunanayake to be passed.
Furthermore, Bandara stated that although a certain minority in Jaffna is attempting to drawn the country back to its dark past, security in the area has been tightened and that the President has already given orders to instill national security within the country.
Bandara concluded by stating that certain individuals are working towards destroying the unity in the country like the L.T.T.E. diaspora wants them to.
