Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa says the Samagi Jana Balawegaya is prepared to support government efforts towards uplifting the country, and will do so while not accepting Ministerial portfolios.
MP Premadasa said the government has brought to an end the programme to provide a nutrition pack for expectant women as well.
Speaking in Embilipitiya this morning, MP Premadasa said malnutrition is on the rise in the country.
He charged that issuing posts for Members of Parliament has become a bigger responsibility than the nutrition of expectant women.
Premadasa said the appointment of 70-80 Ministers, leads to a large budgetary allocation, and expressed his opposition to such a move.
He noted that posts are not required in order to serve the country.
