Opposition and UNP leader Ranil Wickramasingha criticized Speaker W.J.M Lokubandara in Parliament this morning for failing to respond to letters sent by him on two new UNP members who were to take oaths today.

However responding to this, Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva said Parliament was convened today to extend the emergency and not for any other matter.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:27 AM

    WJM betrayed you and UNP. You expect anything fair from bhim? Ungreatful fellow, people will reject both, him and his son.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:40 AM

    Well if it was for the government it would have been a different ball game!!!.
    Voters pls do your part for the country's democracy!!!!

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:46 AM

    The speaker is not impartial. He is dancing to the tune of the Government to get a National list slot

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:47 AM

    Come on Ranil. By now you should know that mere writing of letters will get you nowhere in trying to sort out national problems.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:49 AM

    He is under the payroll, how could he speak

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:50 AM

    The criticism was for not replying to the letter

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 06:51 AM

    Ranil you are a born loser.
    Tissa Attanayke boasted he will turn the house upside down today.May be he is yoo busy looking for a place to hide after Thursday's election results

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:02 AM

    The sad thing is the traditions that we thought inviolable are getting dishonoured one by one. And to boot, WJM who has been boasting about the Sacred Sri Lankan history, is the transgressor.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:04 AM

    Asoka R will see who is hiding behind Ranil after the general election.Ranil will be the Prime minister.And the President will be SF.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:09 AM

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:13 AM

    Our Speaker is a true Buddhist and who is following Dhamma in his work (People can see now).

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:23 AM

    This is not a parliament it is a private of house.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:30 AM

    Remember the drama you had in the Parliament , Mr. Wickremesinghe, when you wanted to appoint him the Speaker? Now do you understand you took a wrong decision that day?

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:31 AM

    Crux of the matter: two people missed the opportunity to be MPs for two days and be beneficiaries of salary + perks for one month!

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:43 AM

    Get these fellows out Ranil and you start to rule. We wait for that day.

    Tuesday, 06 April 2010 07:44 AM

    I wonder if it would be the other way around Asoka.
