This is not UNP Working Committee: Sajith tells President

President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa were engaged in heated arguments over several matters in Parliament today.

During the arguments between the duo, the Opposition Leader alleged that those who manage mikes and video cameras were not acting partially. 

“The people who are managing the mikes and the video cameras are not acting partially. Please instruct the Chair to ensure that the videography is done in the proper order. I watch these things. It is unfair. Please don’t be prejudiced and partial,” he said.

The President who stood up said, “Honorable Chair, I agree with him. Please have the cameras all the time on him. Don’t have them on me.”

The Opposition Leader said, “Mr. President, this is not the UNP working committee. Don't twist words. I never said that. Don't twist my words. Don’t misinterpret what I said.”

“I am making a request. Cameras should be on you all time," the President replied.

    Premadasa showing his immaturity..

    Morajee Hewasinghage Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:30 PM

    What is the immaturity showing here?

    Banda Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:41 PM

    Is it him or RW!!

    Amal Fernando Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:56 PM

    The so called RR who does not have peoples mandate acting like a clown

    francis Benedict Thursday, 23 November 2023 05:48 PM

    Still there are people who support this Un elected Land Seller

    Sinna Thursday, 23 November 2023 06:01 PM

    Actually he has showed his maturity

    Hg Thursday, 23 November 2023 11:27 PM

    Absolutely correct. I can now understand why RW didn't hand over the leadership of UNP to SP.

    Fg Thursday, 23 November 2023 11:31 PM

    SJB guys must be crazy to hang around SP. The immaturity he is displaying is hilarious.

    Somanath Friday, 24 November 2023 10:01 AM

    Of course! Not only his immaturity.. but also the fact that he has an inferiority complex... he tries big words to hide it!

    Abd Friday, 24 November 2023 10:35 AM

    He used wonderful words,good English and well tackle experienced RW,to feel him not to pulling from leg hereafter,

    MOIZ Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:07 PM

    If people still believe that this immature Premadasa can lead the country please wake up. He can lead few like Marikkar, Mujibur and Hirunika. Because they are in the same league. I always notice this stupid man gets bowled by RW everytime he confronts him.

    TC Thursday, 23 November 2023 08:18 PM

    RW is the biggest clown this country saw as a politician. And you seem to be beating him by far! Pls stop exposing your political ignorance, leave alone your total ignorance!! Stop saying things for the sake of saying!!Damn shame!!

    Vinura Friday, 24 November 2023 02:07 AM

    Mr fake account , Ranilcwn only talk he has no detailed plans like Sajith with a professional team with a detailed plan presented. Dr Haraha and others are with Sajith but not with Ranil because Ranil cannot do he is incompetent

    Sokrates Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:45 PM

    Both are unfit for the office of president.

    Ima Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:46 PM

    RW hates SP due to unknown reasons, that led to SP to leave UNP and dissolve it to zero in parliamentary election but due to shear luck RW is now president, during his speech SP nicely punched RW, even we feel sorry of him,

    Nm Thursday, 23 November 2023 11:16 PM

    It is the other way around. SP gets a huge inferiority complex when RW is around.

    Ranjith Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:50 PM

    Sajith salute for talking to the point matching word to word of what President told the parliament ,President didn't have the guts to sit and listen to the opposition leaders speech.

    Wiraj Thursday, 23 November 2023 03:54 PM

    Correction, Prez is treating parliament as SLPP, UNP combined (non) working committee.

    Raj Thursday, 23 November 2023 04:10 PM

    It is pathetic to see time and money wasted on some useless matters by Law Makers and Mr President! Really you need to discuss seat allocation and pointing microphones and cameras in parliament time?

    Raj Thursday, 23 November 2023 04:14 PM

    In western standards, these politicians are not even capable of running a Municipal Council!

    Wasantha Thursday, 23 November 2023 04:40 PM

    Just shows how concious SP is about the focus of the cameras and through it playing to the gallery. He must have a peanut sized brain. Just shows his thinking. It may be best ti turn off the cameras, that way we may have more focussed and productive parliamentary sessions.

    Citizen2023 Thursday, 23 November 2023 04:44 PM

    Not only Premadasa but Ranil too is acting silly and displaying his immaturity. Parliament is not a place to waste time in poking fun at each other and surprisingly being the Head of the state he should realise that he and all the other parliamentarians are paid from the tax payers money. This is what happens when politicians take positions without peoples' mandate. Ranil should know that he is today the President without a mandate n he should act in a way to attract votes from people if he is to be elected at the next Prez election. People consider him a joke and that's why he lost badly in the last general election. He is yet to leant a lesson.

    Tissa Fernando Thursday, 23 November 2023 07:38 PM

    Sajith speaks better English than Ranil . Ranil speaks with the peculiar accent that majority of his school mates. But they are arguing about some seating arrangements. Funny episode.

    Jk Thursday, 23 November 2023 11:18 PM

    Better english! Ha, ha, ha

    Observer Thursday, 23 November 2023 07:43 PM

    It’s pathetic those both leaders( elected and unelected) are discussing hours long about how to focus the video cameras for their own benefit. 40 % Sri Lankans have no or little food to eat.I am not at all a Sagith’s fan. In this debate he is more matured than Ranil.

    Ty Thursday, 23 November 2023 11:22 PM

    Matured? My foot. SP is acting like over grown child, crying for attention.

    Rathnavali Thursday, 23 November 2023 09:21 PM

    Absurd for Premadasa to go on arguing with the President when there are more important matters to discuss. He is so much younger in age and experience than the RW and it shows when he tries to exchange words with him.!

    Abd Friday, 24 November 2023 05:34 AM

    Truly SP has made Ranil laughingstock to the country,

    City Friday, 24 November 2023 05:48 AM

    What I feel is SP is feeling the heat of loosing his position and trying to show his prominence. RW is making him get more aggravated.

    Podi de mel Friday, 24 November 2023 08:17 AM

    Well done SP, great to see you locking horns with RR
