The voters of Galle sent him to Parliament with more than hundred thousand preferential votes making him number one in the list of MPs elected from Galle district and he expected at least a deputy ministerial post said Galle District UPFA Parliamentarian Nishanthe Muthuhettigama. However, the President has disregarded him lamented Mr. Muthuhettigama.
He said the people in Galle have been unjustly treated at the reshuffle of the cabinet carried out recently as they are subjected to step motherly treatment by the government.
Speaking regarding the cabinet reshuffle the Parliamentarian said, “People in Galle have been unfairly treated at the cabinet reshuffle. Parliamentarians who obtained highest number of votes from districts made a written request to the President to provide them with deputy ministerial portfolios. However, MPs who were elected to Parliament for the first time were not given any positions. All positions were given to those who had been in Parliament before us. I expect MPs who entered parliament with the highest number of preference votes would be fairly treated at a future reshuffle.”
