JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake today claimed that the ceremony herelding the inauguration of Parliament was a waste of time and money and said they had requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to reveal the cost of yesterday's ceremony.

He said the President had not presented any fresh action plan and they did not view this as a useful move.

"Nothing new will happen even after the inauguration of parliament," he said.

The MP said Parliament was prorogued by the President to resolve the crisis in his party and it only led to a delay in carrying out parliamentary business.

"About 1,000 oral questions and 1,000 petitions had to be postponed because of the prorogation," he said.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    This is how the Vajji rulers ruled. Ask the president. This is the new way.

    The "Vajji " he refers to is that monk named " Alajji Vajji" who asked for some exceptions to the " vinaya" rules like allowing semi fermented wines etc etc.

    If the JVP stop wasting time and resources criticizing the government and instead implement a plan and do what they can to help the people in some way. They might get at least a few additional votes in each election.
