The United National Party (UNP) will present a no-confidence motion, against the government, in which they will also reveal the names of three prominent parliamentarians and one minister linked to the distribution of heroin.
The no-confidence motion is to be debated in Parliament on Tuesday (20) and Wednesday (21). UNP Parliamentarian Ajith P. Perera said the heroin issue was serious and Sri Lanka had become central hub for the distribution of narcotics. “All the European and African suppliers are domiciled here as they are guaranteed security by the government. Their godfathers are government politicians,” he said.
The Party opined that it is a well known fact… …that the Prime Minister and Minister of Buddha Sasana and Cultural Affairs, D.M. Jayaratne was merely a symbol in the drug menace.
“We have new information regarding three powerful MPs and one minister which information we will disclose along with their names,” he added.
The Executive has failed the country since, in the Mahinda Chinthana manifesto, it is stated that within three years heroin will be eradicated thanks to a zero-tolerance policy, the UNP added.
