No-confidence motion against Hisbullah tomorrow

leave a comment »

Reacting to allegations  made against him and the no-confidence motion mooted against him by the UNP being taken up tomorrow, Eastern Province Health Minister M.L.M Hisbullah says the claims are unfounded and created with the intention of defaming him.

“The allegations are baseless and I have the evidence to prove that I did not tamper with the appointments of the volunteers for the health service from the Eastern Province,” he said. “The appointments were decided and made in the year 2005, at a time when none of us were present at the Eastern Provincial Council (EPC) – it wasn’t implemented until later this year.”

Minister Hisbullah said that ministers, including him, follow the Governor’s directives and those included the appointments as well. “These appointments were directives by the honourable Governor,” he said. “It was to be made in 2005, when the people first applied. Those seeking jobs registered themselves as volunteers; I had no hand in it.”
