A tense situation prevailed in Parliament short while ago after Government MP’s attempted to manhandle UNP MP Jayalath Jayawardane, alleging that he led the protest against President Mahinda Rajapaksa in the UK.

Following the situation Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa suspended the sittings for ten minutes. (KB/YP)

    How come "one shot " did not come for rescue.

    What a shocking display of what can only be described as mob hooliganism by elected members of the government. What sort of message is being sent to the Sri Lanka people and the world.

    We elected these thugs...What do you expect!!! I hope we use our brain in the next election

    Dravid Mini band is exposed and the naked truth is the diaspora votes. So this is why this guy was pleading us to stop the war.

    shantha Thursday, 02 December 2010 03:42 PM

    IMAGE!!!! what are you talking about, does any one know what image means?? Pls there is no such thing in srilanka so talk something make sense . . . .

    RUWANI Thursday, 02 December 2010 01:58 PM

    How absurd!

    If JJ is that powerful MR should remove GLP who is proving to be utterly useless & make JJ the foreign minister!

    WASANTHA Thursday, 02 December 2010 01:37 PM

    Ministers should act with more responsible manner as entire world observing the way how act & react.

    PD Thursday, 02 December 2010 01:24 PM

    JJ may have organised SF's release protest.JJ has no influence on the Tamils' protest. Why find a scape goat?

    pj Thursday, 02 December 2010 11:45 AM

    Dear Government MPs...If then how about the UK Police!! They gave permission to the Tamils in the UK to stage a protest against our Maharaj!! What you are going to do against them?

    kassa Thursday, 02 December 2010 10:57 AM

    What a Parliament. That is like a Fish Market.

    Cheliyan Thursday, 02 December 2010 10:51 AM

    Is Sri Lanka has any image to damage it?

    mallie Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:15 AM

    No wonder our National Bird is "Wali-kukula" ; The Ceylon Junglefowl ; Gallus lafayettii

    රට ගැන ආදරයක් පොඩ්ඩක් හරි තිබ්බනම් ඔහොම කරන් නැහැ...
    මෙහෙමත් මිනිස්සු !!!

    Cobra Thursday, 02 December 2010 10:08 AM

    All the President's men can do anything they please except keep their promises to the voter! It is a wonder they have not found a scape goat among the UNP to bash for the prevailing bad weather, except for Johnston who blames the UNP for the hike in prices. Naivety does not come any better!!!

    bash Thursday, 02 December 2010 08:29 AM

    Does this mean an MP of the opposition is very much more powerful than govt MP's Ministers, Diplomats and the President????

    Silva Thursday, 02 December 2010 07:34 AM

    How can You damege the image which is not existing

    School Children are good citizens in the making?

    apsara Thursday, 02 December 2010 07:07 AM

    Our fellows are good in fight against each other. MPs need to go for Karate or Wrestling classes to handle such situations.

    Sahan Thursday, 02 December 2010 06:59 AM

    is this the way we reprecent Sri Lanka? We should act in a proper way when we go to world. do anythin with in Sri Lankan boundries.

    psyke Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:52 AM

    Vain.. Schools children are better than the ministers

    impartial Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:47 AM

    This will damaged the image of Sri Lanka. If this continues it wil be bad to the proud of SL.

    Kanthi Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:33 AM

    Wonder will the president at the airport. Mps must help HE in creating a good image locally and internationally, instead further damaging his image.

    Ibnu Batuta Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:29 AM

    Is an MP of the opposition that powerful....?
