JVP parliamentary group leader Wimal Weerawansa yesterday warned, what he termed, the minority clique in the SLFP-led minority government not to go ahead with the proposed Joint Mechanism aka Post Tsunami Operational Management Structure (P-TOMS).
Making a special statement as an opposition MP, Weerawansa vowed to reconsider their desire to defend (stability of) the government and the provincial councils while being an independent group in the opposition. `We?d like to emphasise that this would decisively influence any decision we would take in any future election,` he declared.
Thanking Premier Mahinda Rajapakse and Chief Government Whip Jeyaraj Fernandopulle for `their assistance in parliamentary affairs`, the firebrand MP said, `If the struggle you are engaged in to defeat the conspiracy, staged by a minority clique sustained by foreign aid of a few NGOs, is successful, maybe we?ll meet on one platform again. We, on behalf of the inspiration of the people, wish that you will be able to defeat the minority NGO clique which had wriggled into the alliance government to destroy it.`
Weerawansa also thanked Ministers Mangala Samaraweera, Lakshman Kadirgamar, Anura Bandaranaike, Nimal Siripala de Silva and Susil Premjayanth for promoting the UPFA government.
