Just before the NPC session coming to an end yesterday , The Opposition leader Thavarasa raised question whether the Leader of the House is aware of the news item that appeared in news papers regarding the Akilathas affair.
The Leader then said that he had received a letter from Akilathas in the letter head of NPC, but his rubber stamp was not placed in the letter and his signature is not in order. That letter seems to be not voluntary.
