We are not signal poles - State Minister Susil attacks the government

During the debate in Parliament yesterday on the COPE Committee Report, Minister Susil Premajayantha commented critically on certain actions.

The Minister of State questioned whether the Members of Parliament who came to Parliament for legislation could raise their hands in Parliament for laws to be drafted elsewhere.

“We did not go to Montessori and come to this institution. There can be such people. I did my law degree in '82 and came to the Supreme Court in '85 and now 36 years. We also spoke in the case of the bombing of Parliament. Some do not know them. Laws are being made somewhere, laws are being brought here, we have to raise our hands ”

The Minister of State stated that the people have appointed the Members of Parliament as the people's representatives and not as signal poles.

"I say with this report that we have appointed the people. That is the role we have played. I remember when the government went into the process of drafting a new constitution. What is the process? A resolution was passed in Parliament, a Select Committee was appointed and 06 subcommittees were formed. That is for the sub-committees. Technical assistance was provided by legal experts, or is this the legislature and why are we here? Today some do not know. How to make constitutions ”

The Minister of State made this statement after informing the Member of Parliament that there are only 2 minutes left in the Chair.

"Look, that's what happened, only 11 minutes to those who knew the subject." 15 minutes for anyone who says anything ugly without knowing the subject. We are not afraid to say these things. We have sent people to parliament by election. I was the secretary of the alliance and never went on the national list. 12 nominations have been made. Three nominations of Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa have been signed. I don't even remember some of them ”
