By Norman Paliahawadane

Talks have commenced to secure the consent of the MPs for a no-confidence motion sponsored by the SLPP-splinter group Nidahasa Janatha Sabahawa (NJS) against Public Security Minister Tiran Alles.

Kalutara District SLPP dissident NJS member MP Lalith Ellawela told the media yesterday that the draft of the motion was yet to be finalised and they were planning to hand over the motion to Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena this sitting week.

Ellawala said that the no-confidence motion would be against Minister Alles’ failure to take necessary action to halt the killing spree by underworld gangs all over the country.

Ellawela said that their members were scheduled to meet in Colombo today (03) to canvas support for the motion. He said that minister Alles had ample time to take actions to prevent the ongoing killing spree at various places in the country.
