Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Minister of Education noted that there were several other significant points that should be investigated regarding the matter.
Maithri Gunaratne, Governor of the Central Province noted that the authorities should not take this lightly and punish the suspects with the maximum capacity if the government intends to eradicate terrorism.
According to UPFA MP, Dilum Amunugama, Minister Lakshman Kiriella was behind this defamation and the prime minister was aware of the whole incident. MP added that the leader of the house is a significant office in the country and someone of that importance should not be engaged in a such a cheap act.

He finally noted that if it doesn’t deem to be fruitful they would be forced to go for a no-confidence motion in order to remove him from the position of leader of the house.
