Organic Farming initiative responsibility of all government members, Namal responds to Weerawansa (VIDEO)

Every member of the ‘Sri Lanka Nidahasa – Podujana Alliance’ is held accountable for every initiative undertaken by the government and therefore, none can slip away from their responsibilities, said Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa, speaking to a rally organised by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) yesterday (30).

“Certain parties of the Alliance are holding standalone rallies. There is no problem with it, that is their desire. Because they too should do politics. But they are frequently trying to make a picture that they are not involved in the initiatives undertaken by the government. But we say with responsibility that every member of this Alliance is held accountable for every initiative undertaken by the government,” Rajapaksa said.

The Minister added: “A single party cannot say that they are not involved despite their presence in the Cabinet. There is a collective responsibility. Therefore, they, despite their will to hold separate rallies, are held accountable for our initiative of building roads of one hundred thousand kilometres, so the initiative of building one thousand national schools, so the building of playgrounds, the Organic Farming initiative and etc. Therefore, they cannot slip away from that responsibility, I must add.”

The Sports and Youth Affairs Minister’s comments come in following the move by Ministers Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpila and Vasudewa Nanayakkara from the minor parties representing the government to hold separate rallies and criticise certain initiatives undertaken by the government. The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), the major stakeholder of the SLPP-led regime, too is following a path unfavourable to the government.
