Ravi only the tip of the iceberg - Handunnetti


JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti told Parliament yesterday the resignation of Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake was only the billa (sacrifice) and the time had come for nidhanaya (treasure) to be found.

"Soon after Minister Karunanayake resigned, making a special statement, the MP said: "Karunanayake resigned because he would have been sacked had he failed to do so. This is not a victory for the government. Both Karunanayake and the government know why he had to resign. This is not something to be proud of. The thieves are trying to be happy saying that the government could capture one thief. Therefore it is not a victory for the Joint Opposition.

"The COPE helped uncover the scam. Even during the COPE sessions on the issue, many from the government tried to hide it. We are happy that the COPE findings have been proved right before the Presidential Commission and leading to the resignation of a minister," Handunnetti said. (SI)
