Parliamentarian Dulip Wijesekara on Monday June 15, disrupted proceedings to declare open an IT lab of the Al-Mubarak National School in Malwana on Monday, June 15.
The MP’s acts resulted in the eruption of a tense situation. MP Dulip Wijesekara and a group that arrived with the MP attempted to erect a banner at the location, with an image of Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The organisers of the event, who were quick to protest against it, got into a heated argument with the group, which ultimately led to fan exchange of blows.
UPFA Parliamentarian, Dulip Wijesekara stated that they have engaged in clean politics since they will not enter from this point and put up their names anywhere.
After the crowd dispersed from the area, State Ministers Ruwan Wijewardena and V. Radhakrishnan and Minister John Amaratunga who were invited for the ceremony arrived for the official opening of the IT lab.
State Minister of Defence, Ruwan Wijewardene stated that they should not let politics clash with events that are relevant to education. He added that they should not take their political differences into schools.
He went on to note that they are deeply saddened with the tense situation that tranpired.
It is the nature of politics where, at times, it is a different government that completes the projects that was undertaken by a different government. And that is the government that takes credit for it, which is the nature of politics.
