Pandemonium at SPC meeting

There was pandemonium at the monthly meeting of the Southern Provincial Council held yesterday with allegations and abuse been hurled by members against each other. The commotion resulted following a heated argument over the incidents related to the Jana Balaya demonstration launched by the Joint Opposition and Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna on September 5.

Chairman K.A. Somawansa presided over the meeting held at the Southern Provincial Council Secretariat at Kalegana Galle.

Opposition Leader Tennakoon Nilame said that the Janabalaya was an utter failure and there were not more than 50,000 people taking part in the so called demonstration.

Subsequently, there was uproar among the Councillors. No one honoured the orders of the Chairman. Many of them were on their feet protesting in a boistrous manner. Tennekoon requested the members to take their seats. However, the upheaval continued with heated arguments and allegations becoming the order of the day.
