Ruling party MP says public may need to reduce one meal

A ruling party Parliamentarian says the public may need to reduce one meal.

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Parliamentarian Jagath Kumara Sumithraarachchi said that those who are used to three meals a day may need to cut down to two meals a day.

Jagath Kumara said that the public are facing a serious crisis at the moment as a result of the coronavirus.

As a result, the MP said that some sacrifices will need to be made.

He said that even Parliamentarians had sacrificed their salaries for one month to the Covid fund.

The Parliamentarian said that making a few sacrifices today will help the country recover in the days ahead. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. These fools have luxury meals at the parliament canteen paying a small amount and burdening the public. He wants us to skip a meal, because they have sacrificed one month’s salary. How about the amount you guys have earned by way of erroneous means. The people of this country has helped everyone who deserves at the appropriate time more than you politicians. Why can’t you guys sacrifice your extra allowances, reduce your escort vehicles.

  2. Don’t these gluttonous buffoons in parliament have no shame ? The people are wondering where their next meal is coming from. And this out of touch parasite assumes that like himself; people are actually eating three meals a day. The media seriously needs to start educating the people as to the caliber of people contesting elections.
