Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said today that a parliamentary session cost as much as Rs.4.6 million and therefore the MPs should take their work seriously in the wake of a tense situation over the mispronunciation of Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake's name by UPFA MP Bandula Gunawardane during a speech.

The atmosphere turned noisy after Mr. Karunanayake demanded the resignation of Mr. Gunawardena.

He accused him of mispronouncing his name to give a wrong impression about him to the people and it was a malicious act.

However, Mr. Gunawardane said he apologized to the Minister with permission from the Speaker, and therefore there was no need to make a fuss about it. The commotion that existed led to the session being adjourned for a short while. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

    Bunch of jokers. Is this the Yahapalanaya. All are wasting our money. Rajapaksha is 10000 times better than these jokers. No development, keep fighting like 8 grade children.
