    IF YOU CAN'T STOP THEM FIGHTING, OPEN A SEPARATE ACCIDENT SERVICE UNIT IN THE PARLIAMENT.

    ANTON Wednesday, 04 May 2016 07:28 AM

    BECAUSE ALL THE MEMBERS IN THE PARLIAMENT ARE IN "NUT LOOSE CONDITION" THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE TIGHTENED.

    malij Wednesday, 04 May 2016 09:06 AM

    ....and elect more rabid dogs like this???

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 03:38 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.

    Horri Jimonis Wednesday, 04 May 2016 10:02 AM

    Why waste of money on un-wanted elections? Instead feed the poor masses

    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.

    Manuel Benjamin Wednesday, 04 May 2016 10:07 AM

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

    Kadupol Jothywansa Wednesday, 04 May 2016 10:12 AM

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

    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.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Wednesday, 04 May 2016 10:13 AM

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

    John Wednesday, 04 May 2016 12:46 PM

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

    Silva Wednesday, 04 May 2016 01:22 AM

    saman Wednesday, 04 May 2016 03:35 AM

    Nice comment but where is your proof?

    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.

    sathees Wednesday, 04 May 2016 04:00 AM

    It's time to get rid of these useless tugs and bring i educated public service oriented people to the parliament.We really need a revolution / change!

    Manel Wednesday, 04 May 2016 04:02 AM

    Looks like ww is capable of stabbing from front too and not only from behind.

    DS Jayasekera Wednesday, 04 May 2016 05:32 AM

    These are worse than canibals in the deepest Africa ?

    Cobra Wednesday, 04 May 2016 05:35 AM

    He's always itching to 'screw' someone!!!

    Cobra Wednesday, 04 May 2016 05:36 AM

    DESPERATION!!!

    Leo Wednesday, 04 May 2016 06:30 AM

    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
