A seven-member committee has been appointed by Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana to look into the incidents which took place in Parliament on Wednesday.
The Speaker announced in Parliament that the committee is expected to make recommendations on the actions to be taken with regard to the incident and to prevent recurrent of such incidents in the future.
The Committee chaired by Deputy Speaker Ranjith Siyambalapitiya comprises of Minister Chamal Rajapaksa, Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, State Minister Susil Premajayantha, MP Anura Priyadharshana Yapa, MP Imthiaz Bakeer Markar, MP Ranjith Madduma Bandara and MP M.A. Sumanthiran.
Pandemonium reigned in Parliament on Wednesday when the ruling party and opposition SJB MPs confronted each other trying to determine as to who should move the adjournment debate on the Presidential Commission report on political victimization.

Well done, Hon Speaker for your impartial decision in selecting most appropriate members to the committee. You shall be gratefully honored for appointing 'wala payayi- Goda payayi' also to the committee, so that he could clear his record without any obstacle (by the way, you have taken a brave decision to include Chamal R, as you are convinced that he is one of the accused in the said commotion, irrespective of what all have seen, ah ??) OUR MONEY- YOUR FUN!!!!

Why does Speaker want to appoint a committee to probe what happened right in front of his eyes
Was he sleeping?

You will appoint all seven from SLPP itself, no use,,,, get lost.

Formation of the committee itself is wrong. It should have been balanced by removing a SLPP member and appointing a JVP MP. Speaker has proved he is bias.
