No confidence motion against Finance Minister to be submitted to the Speaker today


The Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the proposed no confidence motion against him is not a challenge for him.

The finance minister made this statement to media after participating in a religious event held at the Sri Bodhi Samudraramaya in Kotahena.

Earlier the Joint Opposition stated that they plan to move a no confidence motion against the finance minister, as he has misled parliament by presenting exaggerated statistics in his budget.

Accordingly, MP Bandula Gunawardana is scheduled to hand over the no confidence motion to the Speaker when parliament meets today.
