Heated arguments erupted in the House yesterday when government and the JVP MPs raised concerns that no action had been taken against the MPs who were involved in violent behaviour in parliament during Constitutional crisis last year.  

 JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake said no action has been taken against those who threw chilie powder and broke microphones in parliament even after the committee appointed to look into the matter where some 54 MPs were found responsible for the incident.   


Minister Ajith P. Perera said action can be taken against those responsible over the incident based on criminal liability and privilege issue. 

 
MP Asu Marasinghe requested the Speaker to take action against those responsible based on recommendations of the committee.   


UPFA MP Gamini Lokuge said people would decide whether the behaviour of the MPs were correct or wrong at the November 16 presidential election.   


Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said report of the committee headed by Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri had been referred to the Attorney General for necessary action and added that he would discuss with Mr. Kumarasiri and take appropriate action to expedite the legal procedure.
