Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa says that there is a hidden agenda behind the abrupt end of the parliamentary session.
Recalling the recent sugar fraud, the Leader of the Opposition said that there was an attempt to prevent the disclosure of the details of the fraud behind the adjournment of Parliament.
The Leader of the Opposition stated that the government’s tax revenue was severely damaged due to the sugar fraud which amounted to Rs. 15.9 billion. He pointed out that a formal audit was carried out into the fraud that led to the loss of so much money to the General Treasury and that although the report of the Copa Committee on Parliament had been received, it could not be tabled due to the expiration of Parliament.
The Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa said this while participating in the opening ceremony of the Dhamma School building constructed at a cost of Rs. 2.5 million at the Sri Somaloka Temple in Aravanamulla under the Sasuna Aruna program yesterday (15). This building was constructed at the request of Ven. Polomaruwe Wimaladassi Thero of the Baragama Sri Gnanavimala Pirivena.
