UPFA Galle District MP Sajin Vaas Gunawardene and UNP Matara District MP Mangala Samaraweera had a show down in Parliament today with both members recalling how they visited a restaurant named ‘Buddha Bar’ in New York in the past. 

MP Samaraweera mentioned that he had taken MP Gunawardene to a Buddha Bar in New York when the latter was found spending time helplessly in a cheap brothel in New York.

He admitted this when MP Gunawardene asked him whether the former could recall taking him into a ‘Buddha Bar’ in New York.

    Mervyn Friday, 08 October 2010 12:35 AM

    The visit to the bar is a cover up, they have really visited the BARS at 42nd street, in New York and the Government had to foot the bill.

    Anushka Friday, 08 October 2010 01:36 AM

    It's high time our MPs understand that talking like hooligans in parliament is not going to impress the public.

    Plain Talking Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:04 AM

    Very true.

    Dilan Friday, 08 October 2010 05:59 AM

    Like small kids going at it each other !

    OscarWilde Friday, 08 October 2010 06:04 AM

    That's true... they will think that these are religious people who went to a temple in NY!!!!

    TERRENCE B. DE SILVA Saturday, 09 October 2010 09:54 AM

    "No, No, they were both looking for enlightenment there!"

    rana Friday, 08 October 2010 06:14 AM

    How many participated in the mega trip to Newyork did the same thing. They are waisting tax payers money and increase the price of Bread and Dhal.

    chami Friday, 08 October 2010 02:31 AM

    With this kind of jokers in the administration, can we think any way forward?

    Hippo Friday, 08 October 2010 02:43 AM

    Was the bar and brothel bill paid by public money?

    Kamal Kulathilake Friday, 08 October 2010 02:44 AM

    I totally agree david. specially Mr. Gunawardena.....Just spending public money on his private company and helicopter....

    DT Friday, 08 October 2010 02:54 AM

    Podi Guru Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:37 PM

    Seelanatha Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:28 AM

    No wonder he (sajin) can not settledown with one spouse.

    Tonto Friday, 08 October 2010 03:08 AM

    Tomorrow someone else will accuse someone else of being found standing under a lamp post in the Soho in London.

    david Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:42 PM

    Tharaka Chanaka Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:46 PM

    ....sadly our "village people" will not understand this.

    benadict Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:52 PM

    mohammed Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:01 PM

    As Dr. Mervin said before in the parliment send both these useless fellow for mental check up. Are they in the parliment house in a night club??

    DXB Friday, 08 October 2010 06:47 AM

    Leaders are chosen by the people and it reflects the quality of the society

    Podi Guru Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:20 PM

    How about the Museum of Modern Art in New York City? How about lunch at Carnegie's Delicatessen? The Zoo? Greenwich Village? Macy's Department Store? and on and on.....

    Gamaya Friday, 08 October 2010 03:35 AM

    Not sadly because it's better not to understand theese things which don't suit our village culture.

    Upul Gunawardena Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:25 PM

    What has happened to these MP’s? To get elected they promise a world of things to their constituents. Once they get elected they go to the Parliament and talk nonsense, which is of no value for the constituents. In Parliament they should talk about their promises to the people and how to get them done without this nonsense.

    paul Friday, 08 October 2010 03:37 AM

    And at the same time the president was telling the united nations that SL would be governed according to 'buddhist' principles - maybe these two thought he meant 'buddha bar' principles.

    Faqi Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:35 PM

    This is how tax payers money is being spent on these foreign trips in bars and brothels. I dont think anyone is surprised by this. I remember many years ago when I was a student in a foreign country a delegation came from then Ceylon and all they wanted to know was where the brothels were in town, I was so embarrassed for them.

    Cynic Friday, 08 October 2010 03:45 AM

    This is what happens when crooks fall out.

    Katussa Friday, 08 October 2010 01:55 PM

    He is also a leach!

    Puran Friday, 08 October 2010 04:04 PM

    During the last visit to NY for thr UNGA Sajin must have made up for that viti to a brothel by visiting s top NY strip club at Tax payer expense and with other members of that large delegation.
    The way to go Sajin.

    Nuwanda Thursday, 07 October 2010 06:12 PM

    Is this a big & important "breaking news" for DM?

    dilky Friday, 08 October 2010 04:35 AM
