    Mr. Speaker - Weerawansa should be arrested, he is the one who organized this drama.

    The Parliamentarian who attacked Sandith Samarasinghe should be arrested along with Weerawansa

    Manuel Benjamin Wednesday, 04 May 2016 10:07 AM

    Dinesh Gunawardne should be arrested first for his nasty utterance in the parliament.

    Unfortunately we live in a country where MPs are above the law. Even the Police who is supposed to uphold the law will fail to see justice meated out to the guilty Parlimentarians. Likewise this will be swept under the carpet as the UNP will blame the JO and the JO will blame the UNP and Police will say lack of evidence. Wimal will deny accusations of bringing a screw driver and investigations over justice NIL. Thats sunny Sri Lanka. via DM Android App

    shame on you Wednesday, 04 May 2016 03:51 AM

    Self interest over serving for the country is visible. Looks like no one has gone past grade 8.

    Nice comment but where is your proof?

    Silva Wednesday, 04 May 2016 01:22 AM

    Yes voters are waiting. Have at least the local govt. Elections asap !

    Ex Speaker Wednesday, 04 May 2016 01:21 AM

    Speaker has to take the blame. He should not allow mud slinging inside the house.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 03 May 2016 04:04 PM

    The whole world was watching and its a black mark for Mahinda Rajapakshe. Sorry MR you will never come to power again.

    Jagath Leanage Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:58 PM

    All these politicians' are greedy and selfish bunch. They haven't gone to the parliament to work to common people but to get maximum to them selves. That is why they are fighting like dogs.

    Horri Jimonis Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:38 PM

    Gamampila got 1.5 million and Wimal got 2.0 million and the organizers got 1.0 million from Basil Rajapakshe to grace the May day rally. Whose money is this? Who robbed the public money? At least now Mahinda go home an relax and don't commit since anymore.

    Thomas Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:37 PM

    UPFA showing of their thuggery inside parliament. Action must be taken immediately against those involved.

    Horri Jimonis Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:31 PM

    Joint Opposition party had come with sharp tools to attack the ruling party members in the Parliament. They should be punished accordingly.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:31 PM

    Are these people inside parliament working for the benefit of the public or simply their to promote their own prospects and benefits? If they are working for the benefit of the people, their is no reason whatsoever to have fist-cuffs. Fist-cuffs happens when issues become personal and personal benefits are at stake.

    Bubble Banda Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:30 PM

    Weerawansa had come to the Parliament with a Screw Driver. Please investigate. No need a MP bringing a sharp tool to the Parliament.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 03 May 2016 03:28 PM

    We got to know that Weerawansa attacked MP Sandith with a sharpen tool tactfully. IGP you should arrest WW and get the eye witlessness reveal the same.
