Sunny Side Up: Verbal clash

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayaka and Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage were engaged in a verbal clash in the House last week, where incidents of the past were swung between the two legislators.

Aluthgamage told Parliament that he was prepared to remind the JVP of its past actions in the country and also claimed that he wanted to remind Dissanayaka of the toilets at the Agriculture Ministry when he (Dissanayaka) served as the Minister of Agriculture.

Dissanayaka also shouted back, saying he was also prepared to reveal Aluthgamage’s various nefarious activities from the past.

However, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana intervened to prevent the clash from going any further.
