UNP should take a firm stand. If this continues JVP morons and outsiders who went to parliament through UNP ticket will take hostage the government

Much appreciate your action. Other ministers please note not to overstay the welcome. When you have been faulted and found wanting kindly LEAVE and the public will praise you for it.
Premalal Monday, 09 November 2015 11:56 AM
Your action is appreciated although your continuation in the post would have been untenable. You should now ponder the damage you caused to the parliament, the party,the government and mostly to the country. You should resign from the national list and make way for a honourable person like Mrs Rosy Senanayaka.
