The Mapila (Barnes Cat Snake) which was found inside the Opposition Leader’s office in the parliamentary complex ON Budget Day may have been dumped there by someone intending to harm him, UNP Badulla District parliamentarian Harin Fernando said.
Mr. Fernando told Parliament that sabotage was possible because a snake could not have got into the office without outside help. “Can a snake use a lift?” he asked government members, who were heckling him.
“If a snake can come up in the lift it may have been an extraordinary species of snakes,” he added.
Mr. Fernando said it was vital that a proper investigation be carried out so as to rule out sabotage.
He said there was room to believe that someone either a government or opposition member could have brought the snake in to the complex.
Deputy Minister W.B. Ekanayake in his response said the snake must have been dumped by a UNP parliamentarian.
“A UNP parliamentarian may have been behind this because the party is full of snakes,” he said in lighter vein. (YP)

The snake could have been UNP sponsored to scare the leader to vacate his post. Look amongst yourselves for the culprit
