The leader of Pivithuru Hela Urumaya, who made a speech in the 1st parliament session of the new government, had to face a massive opposition from the house members.

Following the selection process of Speaker, the parliament members were provided with an opportunity to extend their wishes.

During this, Udaya Gammanpila delivered a speech that went beyond the law and order and then Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasingha raised questions regarding the law and order that should be followed inside the House.

Especially, Udaya Gammanpila talked about Mahinda’s effort to end up the war and he talked about carrying a weapon.

Then the Prime Minister, who listened to Udaya’s speech, told the house that there are no permissions granted under the parliament’s code of ethics to talk about carrying weapons, inside the House. Therefore, Udaya Gammapila had to stop his speech in the middle, under the order of Speaker.

Udaya Gammanpila is a believer of Mahinda, who engaged in grasping UPFA party leaders and tried to form a new alliance.a
