19A was passed to strengthen Ranil, to prevent Mahinda Rajapakse returning to power … Aluthgamage


Agriculture Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage has observed that the 19A was passed to strengthen Ranil Wickremasinghe and prevent Mahinda Rajapaksa returning to power.

He made this observation during the debate on six notifications under the Ports and Airport Development Levy Act, three regulations and six resolutions under the Customs Ordinance that were presented to the House. Aluthgamage said:

Contrary to the opinions of civil activists, the Yahapalana government brought in the 19th Amendment not to strengthen democracy or to make judiciary independent but to strengthen Ranil Wickremesinghe and “fill the pockets of the supporters of Wickremesinghe.

The Yahapalana government, instead of strengthening the judiciary, attempted to influence it by using politicians like Ranjan Ramanayake.

I urge the MPs in the Opposition to get together and review why they suffered a serious defeat in the last General Election. The United National Party (UNP) that once ruled the political arena ended up not securing a single seat in Parliament other than the national list position. The SJB did not secure the number of votes it expected, Same was the treatment given by the people to Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), to the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and all such forces that supported the Yahapalana government.

If the first eight months of the SLPP Government and the Yahapalana government are to be compared, it will reveal how advanced the SLPP Government is and how many promises it has fulfilled.”
