A group of UNP MPs have expressed their anger and rage against Minister of Development Strategies, International Trade, Science and Technology and Research, Malik Samarawickrema at the party meeting held in Parliament yesterday (8).

MPs including Hesha Vithanage, Chaminda Wijesiri have criticized Minister Samarawickrema’s attitude.

They alleged that Minister Samarawickreme did not permit them to enter his Ministry when they went there. They accused the Minister of saying that he does not listen to MPs of the ruling party and that he was arrogant.

They stressed that his Ministry was of no use to the public and was a white elephant and that the Ministry should fold up.

However, Minister Samarawickreme has assured the MPs that they could meet him once an appointment is made.

These MPs were of the view that it was not only Minister Samarawickreme who behaved in such a manner and that there were others as well.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has pulled up several UNP Cabinet Ministers for not attending the party meeting yesterday.

Wickremesinghe has appointed a Committee to look into issues that have arisen with regard to Ministers and the inability to meet them. The Committee is headed by Chairman of the Party, Kabir Hashim.
