Present MPs are the most unfortunate of all Parliamentarians – Deputy Speaker

0 1

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament Ajith Rajapaksa said that of all the Parliamentarians, the unfortunate ones are in the current Parliament.

The Deputy Speaker stated this while participating in a workshop held to inform MPs about the national programme to develop 5,000 villages through the development of Sanasa Groups.

The Deputy Speaker further said that, when the current MPs were elected by popular vote, they did not get to do any work due to the Covid global pandemic during this time period. We had not even heard of a global pandemic like Covid before.

The country was closed due to the Covid global pandemic. Along with that came an economic crisis. Along with that came the world economic crisis.

Sri Lanka also felt this world economic recession strongly. With that economic crisis, oil queues and gas queues started taking place. At the same time, a political crisis began to emerge.

The struggle started with the political crisis. Some opportunistic political parties and organizations planned to topple the Government because of the crisis faced by the people at that time. That’s what the struggle was about. It was not a real genuine struggle. That struggle was so tragic that Amarakirthi Athukorala MP was killed. In addition, the houses of 79 MPs were burnt.

Some people created hatred towards the MPs who were elected to Parliament through this popular vote.

But the MPs who were elected to Parliament by popular vote, want to serve the common people of the country. In such a situation, the national programme to develop 5,000 villages through Sanasa Groups, becomes very important.

Through this programme, MPs can play a crucial role for the general public.
