‘Operation’ launched to prevent budget defeat

Rajapaksas’ supporters have set up a huge operation to get the budget vote scheduled to be held tomorrow (24th) passed say reports. They have launched the operation fearing that those who support common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena would attempt to defeat the budget.
According to the operation each and every minister and Parliamentarian is to be met personally to get their allegiance to Rajapaksa regime confirmed. The operation is being carried out by ministers loyal to Rajapaksa family as well as several outsiders say reports.

Meanwhile, it is also rumoured that ministers supporting Rajapaksas are considering an early dissolution of Parliament. They expect a large number from the government to cross over and early dissolution of Parliament would prevent a defeat at the budget vote.
