At the end of the Pohottuve MP group meeting this evening, there is said to have been a very tense scene.
That is when Minister of State Prasanna Ranaweera threatened Party General Secretary Mr. Sagara Kariyawasam, saying, ‘You are the one who is doing everything…’
According to reports, a highly heated scenario arose, and Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena intervened and resolved the matter.
According to unbiased internal sources, the removal of Mr. Prasanna Ranaweera from the COPE committee, although being identified as a member, has resulted in this controversy.
Mr. Prasanna Ranaweera was previously known for hurling chili powder during the 52-day coup.
