Mayhem in the House commenced when opposition members displayed a banner naming a certain minister a 'rouge' while demanding an apology to President Chandrika Kumaratunga on allegations made by this particular minister that the President had been carrying a bomb as well as a secret video camera in her handbag a story which not only seems far fetched and preposterous but also displays the petty mentality of certain individuals within the ruling party now concerned about their future as the President has warned of punitive action against these mendacious antagonists of hers all out to concoct fabrications which surely are the furthest from the truth taking into consideration the manner in which she conducts herself with dignity and the grace of a world leader of high repute amongst a pack of jackals and hyenas which the pandemonium within Parliament was tantamount to..
The disorganized state of affairs and mass confusion of the UNF core
within Parliamant appears to have had its icing on the cake removed when
an attempt was also made after the ensuing fracas to introduce a Bill
relating to the Value Added Tax (VAT) replacing the previous tax system
without a single of the 15 opposition members being able to participate
in making their contributions sending the Bill consequently into limbo
which has been to their advantage as they have opposed the bill and stated
their case to the general public to defy the imposition of a new tax Bill
as an alternative to existing tax laws which a greater percentage of the
general public appear to be very concerned about despite explanations
by the Finance Minister that it is a better alternative.
Another tactical manouvre to denigrate the President appears to have
run aground as the G.L Peiris / Marapona bandwagon searching for a means
to secure their future as Parliamentarians continue together with their
quest for a viable reason to impeach her as they must be fully aware of
the implications of the momentum, opposition parties in support of the
President have gained in the course of actions she has available to her
and regardless of accountability demanded for the purchase of high security
vehicles or accusations of carrying bombs and video equipment in this
latest scenario of innuendos being enacted akin to a Tower Hall Comedy
of yore! the one certain thing which all Sri Lankans are aware of are
the powers vested in the President to assert her authority, and in the
wake of petty intimidations it looks more than likely that her authority
will prevail, sooner rather than later.
