Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe yesterday requested the Speaker to hold an inquiry against TNA Batticaloa District MP Shanakiyan Rasamanickam for allegedly condoning the attacks on MPs and their properties that took place in mid-May.
Speaking during the Vote of Condolence on slain SLPP Polonnaruwa District MP Amarakeerthi Athukorala, the Prime Minister said instead of taking a united stand when Parliament is under attack, the TNA MP had tried to justify the attacks.
