NCM should be against Sajith – Minister Gammanpila

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) should move a No Confidence Motion (NCM) against Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and not against him, Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila said yesterday.

Minister Gammanpila made this observation expressing his views over the NCM alleged to be moved against him on the increase of fuel prices.

Queried about the rumor that some Government Members too planned to vote in favor of the NCM, the Minister said that he did not believe that there were puppets of the Opposition in the Government side.

“The Opposition Leader said that it was not me who should resign from position but the Government,” Minister Gammanpila said.

“But the Members are attempting to bring a NCM against me. It seems that they do not have confidence over the Opposition Leader’s statement. Hence this should be a NCM against the Opposition Leader.”

It was revealed that the signatures of the SJB MPs were taken in the Opposition Leader’s Office against Minister Gammanpila for the NCM. Thereafter it is to be handed over to the Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena.
