While claiming that TNA MP S.Sridharan should be arrested over the speech he made in the Parliament glorifying the LTTE leader, the Bodu Bala Sena today accused the parliamentarians who were present in the house during the speech for not immediately reacting to the speech.
“We all know that Parliament is not a place with much discipline. MPs in there are always creating chaos. The most unfortunate thing we witnessed with the speech of MP S.Sridharan was that no one stood up or objected to it. Instead they listened to the speech with much care,” BBS General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thera told a news conference.
However, the Thera praised those spoke against the speech in Parliament when it was over and said MPs should make speeches on Sinhalese national heroes in Parliament at least for a minute.
He said that MP Sridharan had violated the Sri Lankan Constitution by making a speech on a slain terrorist leader right where the Constitution was drafted.
“Therefore he should take into custody and take legal action against him,” he said. (Jayashika Padmasiri & Lahiru Pothmulla)
