At a time when the Government’s Chief Organiser for the Southern Province crossed over to the opposition, various views are being expressed with regards to the Chief Opposition Whip in Parliament, MP John Amaratunga.

John Amaratunga is currently  on an overseas visit, accompanying the President.

What would his next move be?

Minister of Mass Media and Information, Keheliya Rambukwella said; “Our friend John Amaratunga is on a pilgrimage with the President. What can we do? There is no point in berating us. Berating the world and the people in society instead of rectifying the mistakes in the own party is a great sin. Acting in a spiteful manner will only result in your deterioration; we see it in the election results ..”

JVP Politburo Member, MP Sunil Handunnetti said;  “The Chief Opposition Whip is with the President on an overseas tour.  God Bless the United National Party. This is the opposition of the country. John did not speak of Ethanol in Parliament, he did not speak out on waste, corruption and bribery taking place. He remained silent due to political turns such as this. These are the same people who party with the three kings, by day they berate the government but once night falls they work for it ..”
