SJB protest forces President to walk out

A protest by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) forced President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to walk out of Parliament today.

The President was in Parliament briefly today when Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe made a special statement on the economic crisis.

However, the SJB held placards and protested by shouting slogans telling Goatabaya Rajapaksa to go home.

The President later left the chambers surrounded by some Government MPs.

Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa was also in the House at the time. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. If Sajith is Sri Lanka’s only hope, then, we should all stand on a railway line in front of a moving train.

    His father, was one of the most corrupt men we have seen; on par with Chandrika, but lacking the sophistication of The ROBBER BARONESS. What we can expect from Sajith may be much worse than what we got from Mahinda. His incompetence may be worse than the corruption his party unleashes.

    How can any foreign government deal with anyone in the current parliament with any confidence ?

    • Definitely not worse than the Rajapaksas but still not what the country needs. He is a gangster after all listening to him speak in parliament today proves he is another terrible leader in the making…

      Sri Lanka has not learned it’s lesson that populist leaders are bad for the health of the country.

      Time to cultivate good educated leaders not more gangster like the SLPP and SJB.

      No one should votes for criminals or gangsters at the next elections…

      I will take my chances with the political parties with a majority of fresh highly educated individuals at the next elections.
