A proposed drinking water project for the the New Town area in Lunugamvehera was declared open by the Minister of Housing and Construction Sajith Premadasa.

The Minister of Housing and Construction ,Sajith Premadasa commented on the tense situation that arose in Parliament on Friday stating that “some individuals in the opposition jitter when the certain topics are taken up for discussion. They cannot let go of their old habits”

He added:

If what is said is not pleasant to their ears, it is prohibited to say those things to the public, the MP’s and the public representatives. So, what was prevailing was an era of masks. There was ban on speech but now there is no such mask and there is no ban at all.

Minister Premadasa further stated:

We are all bound to provide the independence to the people to act democratically. Therefore what happened yesterday was unacceptable and the era where the uncivilised governed is over. Because our government will not give prominence to physical strength. We will not give prominence to murderous politics and we have the independence to speak freely in parliament, under a certain ethical legal framework.
