JVP Slams Government For Appointing More Deputy Ministers

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna General Secretary Tilvin Silva slammed the government for appointing four deputy ministers while saying that the parliament will be dissolved in the coming weeks.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, Silva accused the government of acting similarly to the former government of Mahinda Rajapaksa. He pointed out that the number of ministers, State Ministers and Deputy Ministers has now reached 82. This has been done without any proper plan, he alleged.

President Maithripala Sirisena has meanwhile appointed new Senior Advisors, Silva added, saying that the whole process was now becoming a joke.

Sirisena appointed four SLFP MPs as deputy ministers last evening.
