Wed, Feb 5, 2014, 08:37 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 05, Colombo: Parliamentarian of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) has run amok at the party's parliamentary group meeting today.

UNP Kalutara District parliamentarian, Palitha Thewarapperuma has behaved violently when the UNP parliamentary group met at a committee room in parliament to discuss nominations to upcoming provincial council elections.

Thewarapperuma, it is learnt, has verbally abused party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe over his decision to field a certain individual under the UNP banner at the forthcoming Western Provincial Council election.

He has charged that the party leader's unilateral decision would ruin the party at the elections.

Local media reports said that following the heated argument, Thewarapperuma had made his way towards Wickremasinghe when several party MPs had intervened and prevented him from reaching the party leader fearing he might throw a blow at the leader.
