The no-confidence motion against Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen will be handed over to the Speaker today (16), Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MP Shehan Semasinghe said.

The no-confidence motion was prepared under the leadership of MP Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thero, and around 60 members of the Joint Opposition have signed it, he added.

However, Basil Rajapaksa and Mahinda Rajapaksa had reportedly advised members of the Joint Opposition to refrain from submitting the no-confidence motion because it was defective.
