JO cycles to parliament for Mangala’s budget speech! (Pics)

Minister of Finance - Mangala Samaraweera commenced his maiden budget speech a short while ago.

Prior to the speech, JO leader Dinesh Gunawardena complained that he and fellow JO parliamentarians, including former president Mahinda Rajapaksa had cycled to parliament as there is an islandwide petrol shortage.

He said that their parliamentary privileges were violated after police had denied them entry to the parliamentary premises.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya ensured that the matter would be looked into today.
