Colombo (LNW): Certain individuals are reportedly working on submitting a motion to Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana, urging the establishment of a select committee to investigate the cricket crisis, a report by Daily Mirror said.
MP Dayasiri Jayasekera confirmed that approximately ten members have already endorsed the motion.
Supporters of the motion include members of Uttara Lanka Sahabaga led by MP Wimal Weerawansa and the political faction led by MP Dullas Alahapperuma.
MP Jayasekera dismissed the Opposition Leader’s suggestion that a select committee might be an attempt to conceal the issue, describing it as a “foolish idea.”
In response to these developments, Leader of the House Prasanna Ranatunga stated in Parliament that the government would welcome a select committee.
Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa in response said that such a move would be an attempt to sweep the issue under the carpet.
