Speaking on displaying of an altered flag similar to the national flag during a protest held on Thursday, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that the MPs have violated the pledge made to  Parliament, by using a distorted flag that is similar to the national flag.

The Prime Minister went on to say that anyone can take actions against the MPs and Provincial Councillors, no matter their designation. The PM made this statement while attending an event to present laptops to students who obtained 9 A passes at the GCE Ordinary Level Examination from the Uva Province. The event took place at the Postal Department auditorium in Badulla.

Later in the day, the Prime Minister also attended an event to commemorate Former Chief Minister of the Uva Province, Percy Samaraweera. Speaking at the commemoration, the PM spoke on the overnight protest held in the Parliament. He stated that a ring belonging to an MP was lost during the protest. When the PM questioned the worth of the ring, a member in the audience claimed that it was worth Rs. 2.7 million to which the PM reacted by asking if the MP has declared it in his assets.
