The joint opposition’s no-confidence motion against minister Rajitha Senaratne is a meaningless one, says former foreign affairs minister Ravi Karunanayake. He made the remark at a media briefing held at the Information Department in support of minister Senaratne.
Karunanayake noted that as the health minister, Senaratne had reduced the prices of medicines and granted relief to the public.
“In the no-confidence motion, there is something about the Modera fisheries harbour. That happened during the Rajapaksa regime. The joint opposition talks about it as if it doesn’t know it. Also, minister Rajitha is accused over privatizing education. That is a matter for the higher education ministry. It is not relevant to the health ministry. Anyway, this no-confidence will be defeated with a two-third majority. These are completely media hypes.”
These media hypes should be halted at least now, he added.
