JVP Propaganda Secretary and Parliamentary Group Leader Wimal Weerawansa said SLFP (M) wing convener and ousted Minister Mangala Samaraweera was out of his mind in the aftermath of the the December 14 debacle in Parliament. He was commenting on remarks made by Samaraweera, that he (Weerawansa) was a pet of arms dealers, in an interview with a weekend newspaper.
`Those who dared to dream of usurping power through illegal means and to win portfolios have gone mad after the December 14 loss. Now they say various things and make statements that could only made by lunatics. We hope that they would regain their senses within two-three months and then they would be ashamed of what they have said and done,` Weerawansa told The Island yesterday.
