Cued by farmer protests: SJB to bring NCM against Aluthgamage
BY NABIYA VAFFOOR
The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) has decided to bring a No Confidence Motion (NCM) against Agriculture Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage. SJB National Organiser MP Tissa Attanayake stated that the party’s parliamentary group would meet next week to decide on the matter. “By taking too long to resolve this issue, the Government is constantly prompting an antigovernment wave.
If the subject Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage does not provide a solution to the problem, the legislature will express its dissatisfaction with his actions, and will present a no-confidence motion,” he added. Speaking to the Media in Kandy, Attanayake noted that the Government has completely failed in the issue of providing fertiliser to farmers and that farmer protests across the island are not an anti-government movement.
