Minister of Energy Udaya Gammanpila says if the government acts outside promises made to the people, he will act as the opposition while in the government to ensure promises are fulfilled.
Minister Gammanpila said he and Minister Wimal Weerawansa are fulfilling election pledges while part of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.
The Minister speaking at an event in Muthurajawela today said various disagreements take place as they raise issues with the government pertaining to election pledges they made.
He added Minister Weerawansa and he made a written statement in July 2020, to ensure they will follow through with their pledges.
Minister Gammanpila said when the inaugural Cabinet Meeting was held and the draft of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution was tabled and it was passed without an internal discussion, they raised objections, as it was a pledge they made to the public.
