Western Province Council (WPC) UPFA member Janaka Weliwatte yesterday objected to having a Barbeque lunch at the council premises and overturned the Barbeque grill, and some tables and chairs.

Weliwatte thereafter had lied down inside the restaurant of the council insisting that he would not get up until the cost of this extravagant lunch was revealed.

As this was the final meeting of the council chaired by the Chairman Sunil Wijerathna before the Sinhala and Hindu New Year, a special lunch had been organized for the Councillors, staff and the journalists at the restaurant of the council, there had been two Barbeque grills with meat being cooked from morning.

The smoke that had emitted from the two burners had covered the entire meeting hall and outside area. This was continuing with the ongoing debate of the council on private universities.

Weliwatte who resented this type of preparations for the special lunch, had overturned the Barbeque Grill and some tables, demanding who had organized this sort of thing and what is the cost of it.

He refused to get up from the place where he was lying until they inform the cost of this Barbeque. Some crockery and the cutlery that had been brought in for the lunch was also damaged. (Muditha Dayananda)

    Please kick the government as the same way you kicked the BBQ grill.

    This is done only for publicity sake and not on public Interest. Just another Wimal via DM Android App

    @Let it go. So will this guy object to this kind of thing if their own party is in power?

    Obviously your memory is not long enough to remember the motor races around the Kandy Lake and Dalada Maligawa or the Katukurunda motor races in the good old days of the previous regimes. Anyway what surprises me is that you consider these to be extravagances. Appears to show tunnel vision

    We are at fault for bringing in these jokers to politics.

    Maniya Wednesday, 05 April 2017 01:11 PM

    Cost of BBQ perhaps be less than the damages made by you...

    Provincial councilor is drunk. These are the people representing the government.

    Nostradamus Wednesday, 05 April 2017 01:28 PM

    Tell him how much cost all the good and how much the damages he has done. After let him page every cent. Stupide JO has no discipline and no respect for the many poor in this country. Food should NEVER be wasted this way. Shame via DM Android App

    Why can't they have a healthy food? Barbecue meats causes cancer, do they know it.?

    Barbecuing inside a building could have killed people from Carbon monoxide.

    You should go to the Parliament and check out the tax payer funded subsidized five star meals provided to all politicos.

    True colours of our dongas.

    Sad that these people didn't object to MR and co.'s similar extravagances in the past, like the motor races etc.

    Let it go Wednesday, 05 April 2017 11:40 AM

    Two wrongs don't make a right. The government came to power to make things right. That's why people voted for it defeating MR and Co. What is sadder is that this government keep continuing with extravaganza while pledging not to do so.

    He could have objected to this in a better way rather than being a thug or rowdy. Show better examples to the people rather than provoking things, as today people have lost their dignity when it comes to discipline.

    A correct message in a incorrect method. A typical foolish lawyer. Wonder someone else written answer papers behalf of him as in the cases of RAJAPAKSAS. via DM Android App
