    Maybe they receive text messages telling how to vote. Without their mobile phones they will be leaderless.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Monday, 12 November 2012 04:58 PM

    MPs keep their mobiles in pockets,STF can check only behinds.

    Hussain Monday, 12 November 2012 05:10 PM

    Why not request them to switch all mobile phones when entering parliament as done in most other countries, when entering public places like a theater or parliament.

    Peace Maker Monday, 12 November 2012 05:30 PM

    Will the MPs also start rioting just like the prisoners if the Sergeant At Arms decides to check for hidden mobile phones!

    Poet Monday, 12 November 2012 09:05 AM

    This is a very good move I saw with my owner eyes last week Ravi k fiddling. With his phone during budge speech - may be it was boring but then he should have it . I saw this on sirasa. Where are manners ?

    Bagalawathie Monday, 12 November 2012 10:08 AM

    There should be body check also.....may be some of them under the influence of drugs/liquor .. as the way they behave in the parliament.

    Dismanirie Monday, 12 November 2012 11:16 AM
