    Pretty sure that no action will be taken by the speaker.

    So soon?

    Mr. Speaker it is not a minor issue, you have proof as all the video on this issue is the eye witness. This culprit should be thrown out from the Parliament as he is a thug. Don't encourage J/Opposition thugs to disgrace our sovereignty.

    Manuel Benjamin Wednesday, 04 May 2016 03:02 PM

    You should not leave this matter lightly Mr. Speaker. Please hand over the said thug to the Police for them to investigate and take him into custody. Our new IGP is capable to handle this case.

    Weerawansa is the main man behind this scene although he keeps silence. He is the one who pre-planned this drama. Action please...against him.

    All depends how the speaker is going to act. He has to be firm and steady to go for a large scale investigation against this J/O culprit, who is naturally a thug as the whole nation knows.

    J Palitha Wednesday, 04 May 2016 03:08 PM

    We got to know from one of the J/Opp member who is my brother-in-law, that Gamampilla and Weerawansa instrumented this thug to act his drama inside the Parliament and they have paid a big sum for him.

    Speaker please take serious action on those responsible to teach all a lesson. Otherwise all become jokers.

    Chris Wednesday, 04 May 2016 04:40 PM

    Sir/Madam,I suggest Install security checkpoint like in the Air port for all who are entering in to the parliament. Full body this is to save guard our country people.
