Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake and joint opposition MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage are reported to have exchanged blows in the parliamentary complex outside the Chamber over some allegations made in the social media.
Mr. Aluthgamage is reported to have inquired from Mr. Ramanayake about an allegation made against him in the social media and this had resulted in a heated argument including obscenities. The two had then exchanged blows but the fracas was prevented from going any further with the intervention of others such as JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake.
Recently, the people had witnessed similar exchanged of blows between MPs leading to the hospitalization of a member and the suspension of two others from attending Parliament.
Mr. Ramanayake confirmed that he was involved in a fracas with Mr. Aluthgamage and the exchange of blows.
"I leaked some information about the abuse of a Defender vehicle by Mr. Aluthgamage. I was talking to Mr. Dissanayake in the lobby when Mr. Aluthgamage walked up to me and blamed me for giving such information to the media. It led to an argument. We traded blows," he said.
Mr. Ramanayake said he was given the information by Kandy District MP Ananda Aluthgamage to be leaked to the media. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

These pig type useless politicians are a curse to the country. uneducated actors are directing and giving orders to top public servants like Secretaries to Ministries without any background or education. How can this country prosper with such people at the helm ?

Ranjan should be commended for this. This is what people like Aluthgamage did in last so many years by getting to the parliament through the vote of suffering people.They went to parliament with the promise to develop the country and improve the life condition of people. A Man who has started his life with a motorbike ended having billions in bank accounts.Instead of fighting Ranjan he should have shown misdeeds don by Ranjan if there is any.
Vijith Pieterz Wednesday, 22 June 2016 10:40 AM
Aluthgamage is just a pea nut for Ranjan. His quarter shot will lead MA to the grave.

Ranjan's antics backfired on him as he was proven utterly wrong in front of the media cameras, which he had invited to unfold the drama. The vehicle belongs to a colleague of his, another deputy minister and not Aluthgamage. The naluwa's doings only brings disrepute to the government and Ranil should warn him sternly to stop his damn nonsence.

Mr Ranjan, try not to divert people's attention by bringing useless stories. The country is in serious trouble.

Bad examples to the younger generations.

This is all Baila. We don't want News about used Defenders and misuse of state property..Run the rule of the country, Do Justice to all equally and let the innocent people of this country live as per their income.We know that after all, you politicians will sit at the same table for dinner with a drink and the poor people will fight over politics and live a miserable life..
