A number of political parties including the JVP criticised the actions of the NFF during the No Confidence Motion.
Propaganda Secretary of JVP, MP Vijitha Herath expressed the following view:
“This shows the lack of a backbone. On one hand they are enjoying the benefits of the ministerial portfolio on the other they are making nationalist statements and creating comic relief because the……… are losing their grip on power and becoming unpopular.
He added: “These actions are the only things providing temporary solutions to this issue. These actions also prevent the concentration of a public force against the government. When the gazette notification on casinos was released, he didn’t say anything. Later he criticises it publicly. “
He also noted: “You might have been able to see him recently berating the Secretary to the Ministry of Finance. The Ministry of Finance comes under the Minister of Finance who is incidentally the President. He doesn’t have the backbone to criticise the Minister of Finance so he is criticising the secretary. Wimal Weerawansa criticises various individuals including P.B. Jayasundara but the government does not respond. It is very clear who wrote this script and who is directing this play.”
Leader of National Unity Front , Azad Sally also commented on this situaton:
“Wimal Weerawansa is saying that they need to create an opposition within the government. That means the government has realised that their senior ministers have met on a number of occasions and reached a decision that this government needs to come to an end.”
“The government quickly gave Wimal Weerawansha the contract to do what Rauff Hakeem is doing. While speaking in Eravur, Hakeem says that the time has come to move away from the government. Then today he says that the UNP has done something wrong by presenting a No Confidence Motion and that they would take steps to protect the government. “
