Claiming that attacks on MPs’ residences were not restricted to May 9, Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said today MPs residences were being attacked from April 4.

He told Parliament that some organised groups started attacking the residences of MPs after the incident where the President’s private residence was surrounded by a group of protesters on April 3.

The Minister said his residence was first attacked on April 4.

“Carlton House and Roshan Ranasinghe’s house were first attacked on April 4 and 5. I reject the claims that the attack on MPs’ residences started on May 9. This is an organised attack,” he said.

He also refuted claims that the meeting at Temple Trees provoked the people who gathered there to attack protesters on Galle Face.

He said politicians of JVP, SJB and Frontline Socialist Party were responsible for making statements in Parliament and on stages provoking people against MPs.

“Law should be implemented against the MPs who made provoking statements,” he said.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)
