Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe would seek disciplinary action against UNP MPs who behaved unruly in Parliament last week, State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene said over the weekend.

Responding to a question made by a journalist at a function held in Gampaha on Saturday (13), the State Minister said the issue was not scripted by the involved parties as speculated by some.

He said the incident occurred when UNP MPs came to the front to protect the Prime Minister, when Opposition members attempted to obstruct the PM’s statement.

He said the incident was not a good example to the country and that the MPs were not elected to Parliament to fight but to find solutions to people’s problems. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Can anyone name at least one MP who has faced disciplinary action in Sri Lanka parliament for wrong doings? Never happened and never will.

    Haa.. haa.. hell of a joke, that, then PM himself will have to go under such a so called disciplinary action.

    Instead of finding solutions to problems, they are creating problems.

    PM shouldn't be seeking disciplinary action.. he'd rather face disciplinary action

    Yes good decision. However PM too instigated the UNP members to provoke the opposition by shouting Mahinda hora in return to Ranil hora slogans. via DM Android App
