JVP to initiate No Confidence Motion on Marapana

JVP is to move a no confidence motion in the House on Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana. JVP is to move the no confidence motion on the basis of Tilak Marapana’s statement on the Avant Garde issue.

JVP National Organizer Parliamentarian Bimal Ratnayake revealed the decision of the JVP to the media.

“We are currently in the process of seeking legal advice on the matter,” JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake told reporters in Colombo.

He claimed that the “good governance” group and the Rajapaksa group are both protecting the private security firm and that Avant-Garde has become the common candidate of both groups.

The JVP National Organiser also said that Minister Marapana has obtained payments from the Avant-Garde company for legal advice and therefore he is bound by that.

“The President must remove corrupt ministers in the government from their respective portfolios before the Budget,” he said, adding, that if said minister continue to remain when the budget is presented the JVP will seek a special vote on the  Law and Order Ministry’s expenditure and vote against it.
