The Opposition charges the government of snatching away the right to question measures being taken pertaining to the Millennium Challenge Corporation agreement.
Speaking at a media briefing Parliamentarian Hesha Withanage drew links between the visit by United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the MCC agreement.
MP Withanage claimed the MCC agreement was a decisive factor which led to the defeat of the former good governance government, as media and officials portrayed it as a destructive force against the country.
The MP added as a result the people are of the stance that at present the government should not hold discussions pertaining to the matter.
MP Withanage raised concerns over whether the country is discreetly being sold to the United States.
