PM, CBK take crucial decisions now: Gammanpila

Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) General Secretary and Western Provincial Councillor Udaya Gammanpila on Tuesday (7) charged that those who assisted to form the new government take crucial decisions about the island nation, but not the President.

Gammanpila made the observation at a press conference held in Colombo.

Gammanpila said that the Prime Minister and former President Chandrika Kumaratunga have taken control and it is them who make vital decisions about the country.

“There is a strong call to recall former President Mahinda Rajapksa to the political arena, but there are no such invitations to Kumaratunga,” he added.

Gammanpila also went on to say that he would urge to table a no confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe over the Central Bank bond issue, if there is a strong opposition in the Parliament at the moment.
