* Lawmaker of Sri Lanka's Marxist coalition complains of omitting him from budget debate
Tue, Nov 13, 2012, 12:38 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 13, Colombo: Ajith Kumara, Galle district parliamentarian Sri Lanka's Marxist coalition Democratic National Alliance (DNA), has raised a point of order yesterday when the second reading of the budget was under way saying that his name had been removed from the list of opposition speakers.

He said the Chief Opposition Whip John Amaratunga earlier informed him that he was allocated a 20 minute slot to speak but his name had been removed from the list of the speakers later without any explanation.

Deputy Chairman of Committees Chandrakumar Murugesu who was in the chair at the moment said the MP could not be given time unless he was allocated time due to the tight schedule.

He said the matter would be forwarded to the Speaker and instructed the MP to discuss the matter with the Chief Opposition Whip.

MP Ajith Kumara is a member of the Frontline Socialist Party, a breakaway faction of the Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP). He entered the parliament from the DNA led by former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka and later joined the FSP.
