UNP Working Committee To Discuss Action Against Wijedasa: Another Motion In The Offing To Remove Rajapakshe From WC

The United National Party (UNP) Working Committee is to discuss the party's future course of action on Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe. 

The next Working Committee meeting of the party is scheduled to be held on August 17. 

The meeting takes place in the wake of claims made by a section of UNP Parliamentarians that they will present a no-confidence motion against Minister Rajapakshe. 

Some have even threatened to present a motion to the UNP Working Committee urging to remove Rajapakshe from the party's apex decision making body. 

Rajapakshe had earned the ire of UNP Parliamentarians over the slow progress of investigations into key members of the previous administration and his remarks against the Hambanthota Port agreement. 

They assert that Rajapakshe has acted in violation of his collective responsibility as a Cabinet Minister and caused embarrassment to the government.
