June 23, Colombo: The supplementary estimate of Rs. 200 billion submitted by the government for the control of the Covid epidemic and other urgent needs was passed in Parliament today (23).

Following a debate, the supplementary estimate passed without a vote.

Chief Government Whip Johnston Fernando presented this supplementary estimate in Parliament yesterday.

Meanwhile, the members of the opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) ) began their protest in the House against the increase in fuel prices, when questions were raised for oral answers. Demonstrating placards, they marched to the center of the hall and protested.

Although the Opposition has raised a number of questions seeking oral answers, it is noteworthy that they did not participate in those questions today.
