UNP Matara District MP Buddika Pathirana today said he has been subjected to different kind of treatment in Parliament at times.

Mr Pathirana came out with this remark when Speaker Karu Jayasuriya hailed him for raising oral questions on the cultivation of medicinal plants in Sri Lanka.

“Raising oral questions about the cultivation of medicinal crops continuously is commendable" the Speaker said.

“Thank you Mr Speaker but some MPs laugh at me for raising such questions. My intention is to help the promotion of medicinal crops" he said.

“It is not a thing to laugh about" the Speaker responded. (Yohan Perera)

    Dont worry - Your efforts will yield good results in time to come .Those who laughs are idiots .They do not even attempt or encourage but keep commenting.

    It's a laugh of envy. When people chase away, or die away, these useless old school corrupt politicians, you will be able to rise and shine. In that sense it is a blessing that you didn't get into the cabinet. It's an opportunity to start afresh.

    Yes, some may laugh at you for taking about cultivation of medicinal plants. We cry when we talk and think about the Bond Scams and the on going corruption. Why not switch topics?

    You should not be laughed at but your close relatives deserve to be laughed at for trying to hide unpleasant facts about members of his profession.
