    No need for Namal Rajapaksa to make any comments because he himself is a thug in parliament.

    I went to the stadium with my online booking after this incident and unaware of it. The ticket counter staff was disorganized, lethargic and they really did not want to issue the tickets in a hurry. Something very fishy happened there.
