Our man from the ‘Immaculate Tomorrow’ who got involved in the exchanges had fired a broadside at the Green party leader.  The Green party leader who allowed his detractor to have his say later addressed him: “Do you think that you are qualified to teach politics to us? I have been an MP continuously from 1977.  Have you functioned even as a member of a Pradeshiya Sabha? Do you think that you can even contest a Pradeshiya Sabha election successfully?”

This tongue-lashing silenced the vociferous institution head, they say.
