Wigneswaran’s statement made heat arguments in Hansard

Heated arguments erupted in the House today over the inclusion of the statement made by Tamil People’s National Alliance MP C.V. Wigneswaran in the Hansard despite requests made by the Opposition to expunge it.

Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Manusha Nanayakkara pointed out that he requested the Speaker to expunge from the Hansard the statement made by MP Wigneswaran claiming that the Tamil Language was the first language in Sri Lanka. However, it was included in the Hansard.

Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Nalin Bandara said MP Wigneswaran had violated the oath he had taken in Parliament not to support or advocate a separate State soon after an hour and said he could even be removed as an MP for making such a statement.
