Dinesh to arrive in parliament by boat! Featured

Leader of the joint opposition Dinesh Gunawardena is planning to arrive in parliament via Diyawanna Oya by boat after he was banned from entry to parliament for one week, according to reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror.

At a vote yesterday (08), House voted 85-22 to impose the ban on him over his unruly conduct.

He continued to disrupt proceedings after the speaker turned down a request by Wimal Weerawansa to function as an independent member.

Owing to the situation, a tension atmosphere prevailed in parliament for nearly five hours.

This is the first time police had to be summoned to evict an MP, after A.H.M. Azwer was evicted in 1987 for having disobeyed the chair.
