The Leader of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and National People's Power (NPP) Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated in Parliament today (24) that a Speaker should be impartial in his activities in Parliament but even Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena is sitting on the chair leaning towards the Ruling Party.

He said that the Speaker was sitting as well as acting in favor of the ruling party and requested him to intervene instead.

At the time of Anura Dissanayake's statement, the Speaker, who was sitting leaning to his right, has adjusted himself and have sat up straight, smiling.

The Opposition continues to accuse Abeywardena on the way he is acting as the Speaker.
