State Minister of Tourism Diana Gamage questioned in Parliament yesterday (19) whether the Opposition Leader has the heavy vehical licence to drive buses.
“The Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa distributes buses to schools. He drives these buses too. To drive buses, one needs heavy vehical licence. I wonder whether the Opposition Leader has the relevant licence to drive buses like that.”
Speaking on the Bill to regulate election expenditure, Gamage pointed out that people of the country are not requesting an election. This difficult year should be dedicated to uplift people’s lives, she noted. Meanwhile MP Gamage criticized the Opposition Leader for taking up too much time of the House. She noted that Premadasa stretches his speeches taking up more than an hour of the morning session. He is like a “Mike” Tyson, MP Gamage quipped.
