Leader of the House and Highways and Higher Education Minister Lakshman Kiriella has observed that the Joint Opposition members must solve their issues with their leader President Maithripala Sirisena and not with the Speaker. Parliament is not the forum to sort out this issue.
He was speaking in the House joining the argument that transpired when JO member Dinesh Gunawardena wanted more time to speak on the resolution.
"As our Prime Minister always say, these problems concerning the Joint Opposition should be solved with the SLFP Leader President Maithripala Sirisena. We will arrange a time for you to meet the President, " he said.
