UNP moots ‘No faith’ motion against PM
The United National Party (UNP) is mooting a No Confidence motion against beleaguered Prime Minister, D.M. Jayaratne, over the allegations that his office had issued a letter to secure a duty waiver for a container, which had South Asia’s largest heroin haul concealed within.
UNP MP Sujeewa Senasinghe said he would propose a No Confidence motion against the Prime Minister, during the next Parliament group meeting of the UNP.
He said the UNP expects the support of other political parties for the resolution.
Parliamentarian Rosy Senanayake, at a recent media conference, also called for stern action against the Prime Minister.
Ratnapura UNP MP, Thalatha Athukorala, said that the Prime Minister should resign from the post, in order to allow an independent investigation into allegations levelled against him.

The UNP is a bunch of dreamers; the PM, Hon DM Jayaratne is providing yeoman service to the Nation based on Mahinda Chinthana.
I cannot understand why the PM should resign? His office did issue a letter and the circumstances have clearly been divulged. As a citizen, that is good enough for me. I expect no further action from any quarter.
I do no agree with Moda Mirissa.
The PM should go so that Hiruknicker who is the rising star in the MR regime can walk into the Premiership.
Hon DM, time for you to go and make way for the next gen.
Ignorance is no excuse in the face of the Law.
Hon. PM should resign (1) in the name of good governance
(2) to clear his own good name
and (3) because he is too old and feeble.
All the good men must know to call it a day.You have already gone beyond the limits.
May you be blessed in Retirement.
Due to political gain within the leaders from Parties & Religious (MR/GR/DM/RW/UNP/SLFP/BBS)we are moving to back rather than looking ahead. I am wondering in 2015 UN & Western nations will create another issues for little Sri Lanka for our on going crisis since 2013. NO GOVT SHOULD IN POWER MORE THAN ONE TIME, IF WE WANTS BETTER SRI LANKA AND BETTER FUTURE.
