UPFA MP Susantha Punchinilame said today he would not hesitate to use his official weapon in self defence should there be a threat to his life.

He told parliament that a 71-year-old man had attempted to attack him with a knife in Kantale, Agbopura while on a official visit to his electorate.

Raising a privilege issue, he said even though he complained to the police hot line 119, there was no response and he later complained to the Agbopura police.

"I was rescued by my security personnel," the MP said.

He said the police personnel assigned to MPs would be hesitant to carry out their duties as their jobs would be at risk.

"Minister Arjuna Ranatunge's bodyguards are in trouble by trying to help him. If such things happen our security personnel will not carry out their duties in fear of their jobs," the MP said. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    What is the difference between Worthless and Priceless; oft queried. This one belongs to the first category, hands down.

    People should also have same rights when you threaten them. Is the 71 year old related to Nalanda Ellawala?

    Hope history will never repeat.

    The attempted attack must be to take revenge for what you did before! Can you remember killing medical students? The ghosts are behind you!

    Detailing police officers to protect thugs like this guy is a joke at first place. These mp's goes and interfere in normal day to day life of people should come to an end. Some times these jokers goes and interfere with unwanted disputes just to show the power putting police security officers in danger. Govt should give some guide lines to these jokers if they need police protection.

    This guy is a murderer any way. That's why he is in politics and qualified to do it.
