The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says the government only seeks to employee officials who agree with its arbitrary decisions and expels those who disagree.
Speaking during a media briefing this morning Parliamentarian SM Marikkar said the decision to remove Prof. Buddhi Marambe from all posts he held in the Ministry of Agriculture was one such incident.
MP Marikkar claimed corrupt Ministers have resorted to falsely labelling officials who present scientific facts.
He said Prof. Marambe is an expert in the field of agriculture.
When questioned by media regarding the statement made by the Minister of Agriculture Mahindananda Aluthgamage yesterday that the ship containing Chinese organic fertiliser would not be allowed to enter the country, the Parliamentarian said the statements made by Minister Aluthgamage and State Minister Shasheendra Rajapaksa were contradictory.
He said the vessel has entered Sri Lankan waters, violating the geographical integrity, country’s sovereignty and threatening national security.
MP Marikkar questioned the statement issued by the Chinese firm threatening to backlist a state bank and on possible consequences Sri Lanka may face.
