Parliament of Sri Lanka
Resignation from the membership of the Special Committee to Investigate the Causes of Financial Insolvency and Report to Parliament
During the nomination of members for the above special committee, my name as a member of the opposition was also submitted as a member of the said special committee. However, it is no secret that the names proposed by the ruling party to this committee are controversial.
It is futile to expect that a committee consisting of the majority of the people who caused the financial bankruptcy of the country will examine the real reasons or make recommendations related to it. In this situation, it is meaningless to represent such a committee, so I hereby give notice that I resign from the membership of the said committee.
Member of Parliament
