54 SJB members will lose MP posts – Diana
State Minister of Tourism and Member of Parliament Diana Gamage yesterday inquired whether the MPs of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) who questioned her citizenship are legally entitled to be SJB Members of Parliament.
She said, “If I am removed from Parliament, a total of 54 SJB Members will lose MP posts”.
State Minister Diana said: If I did not establish “Ape Jathika Peramuna”, the party called SJB would not be in existence today.The case pertaining to my citizenship is being heard in Court now and I urge you to consider your own MPS posts instead of dragging this case. I heard that SJB is going to celebrate its second anniversary. I would like to tell you it is not an SJB, but rather “Ape Jathika Peramuna” who is 17 years old. The SJB and the posts held by various people are totally illegal. I request you not to make false accusations and protect all your Positions in the SJB as I will initiate legal actions shortly in this regard”.
