Former Speaker & Minister of Irrigation Chamal Rajapaksa during an intense debate in Parliament today called out on Opposition MP Sarath Fonseka, challenging him to step out of the house, for a physical challenge.
Chamal Rajapaksa called MP Sarath Fonseka a donkey while responding to charges of harassment raised by Fonseka during his imprisonment in 2010.
Fonseka in response said that if he was to assault Chamal Rajapaksa he would die.
Tensions broke out after house Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardhana listed out reasons for the vacancy of MP Ranajan Ranamanayeke’s Parliamentary seat.
Following the fallout between the two members of Parliament, the house was adjourned.
