Franchise to Diaspora detrimental to Lanka: Udayagamanpila

UPFA Parliamentarian Udaya Gamanpila has stated that the proposal to grant franchise to the Diaspora is detrimental to the island nation.

Speaking in Parliament, he went on that it will result in the country being ruled by foreigners as in the case of Fiji Islands.

He criticized the Budget proposals as having been drafted to satisfy the foreign masters who helped a regime change in the country. The pledges made to these foreign powers especially to the US and India have been honoured.
