United National Party (UNP) MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka today requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to summon IGP Pujitha Jayasundara to Parliament within 48 hours, over the recent remarks made by the President with regard to the alleged assassination plot. 

The MP said President Maithripala Sirisena had recently said that ‘Sarath Fonseka’ was plotting to kill him.

“This is a serious allegation which raises privilege issues since I’m an MP. Therefore, I request you to summon the IGP to parliament within 48 hours to give answers to this. Either put me in jail or summon the IGP to parliament,” he said.

    I personally don't like his political move. How ever his performances in the battle earned him the deserved reputation and rank.

    This ia a genuine and valid request.

    He would have told just to divert people's attention from his covetous acts and to get sympathy. This is only a story going on last three months

    If there was even 0.05% involvement of SF the wheels would turn and he would have been questioned. It is so obvious that it is a canard to cover up the wrong doings of the person who said this.

    President is uttering hundred and one things everyday and he is totally confused, please don't take it seriously.

    Don’t mind his jabbering. No one cares when mad dogs bark at the moon.

    GH Tuesday, 27 November 2018 06:11 PM

    Just jailing is not enough, you are a traitor, so the punishment should be come after deep discussion.

    Raj Tuesday, 27 November 2018 07:02 PM

    What nonsense are you trying to say?

    Raven Tuesday, 27 November 2018 06:53 PM

    I think the President is going nuts, he has to be locked up before he hurts himself!!!!!

    bert Tuesday, 27 November 2018 07:54 PM

    If he hurts himself thats fine. But paying with the constitution is reason. Citizens have the rights to file criminal charges against him. If this man lost his mind only place he deseves is a lunatic asylum.
