Probing gas cylinder explosions: Wijesiri slams appointing select committee
By Nabiya Vaffoor
Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Chaminda Wijesiri criticised the Government for appointing parliamentary select committees to probe the LP gas cylinder explosions on Wednesday (1), although his Party Leader Sajith Premadasa suggested a the appointment of a parliamentary select committee to probe last week’s incidents.
Wijesiri criticised the committee during a Media briefing at SJB headquarters claiming the committee discusses nothing but the number of accidents.
“The Government is aware of the adequate measures that should have been taken to stop the explosions. But even now they are neglecting that by deceiving the public just by appointing various committees,” he added.
Premadasa called for the appointment of a parliamentary select committee to investigate reports of gas cylinder explosions even during 30 November parliamentary sessions.
