The investigations into the havoc in Parliament during the 2018 Coup were ceased as Leader of the United National Party (UNP) MP Ranil Wickremesinghe and current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa intervened, divulged former Speaker and Chairman of the National Movement for Social Justice (NMSJ) Karu Jayasuriya, speaking exclusively to “Sandeshaya by Saroj” today (19).
Jayasuriya also revealed that along with the unrest awakened amidst the 2018 Coup was a plot to launch an acid attack on him.
The former Speaker added that he is very much disappointed in the current political situation of Sri Lanka, especially with the focus on the 20th Amendment to the Constitution, which, according to Jayasuriya, would be a ‘very dangerous’ amendment to the country.
Such an amendment endangers the investment opportunities to Sri Lanka as well, he added.
Commenting on the NMSJ, the former Speaker noted that his movement has no intention of catering to any government overthrow, nor gaining power in the country.
