Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed would not be allowed to enter military camps and the three forces would not participate in functions attended by the Chief Minister, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) said.

Defense Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi said the decision was taken after considering a request by the security forces to do so.

He said the security forces have been perturbed following the recent incident where Chief Minister Ahamed rebuked a naval officer during an event held at the Sampur Maha Vidyalaya.

    This joker needs to know the code of conduct in presence of school children before calling for protocol.This moron is a disgrace to Srilankan politics.

    Well done. He should give an unconditional public apology to the Naval Officer.

    Maya Friday, 27 May 2016 11:43 AM

    Hello Secy, holdon! Don't trust the politicians. He is a CM just because MS party supports him. So...

    CITIZEN Friday, 27 May 2016 11:46 AM

    HE President, Nip the bud before its get out of hand - this type of people's representative should not be allowed or tolerated. Appreciate if he is sacked forthwith so that others will hopefully learn to respect. All armed forces and Police personnel will always have the highest regard of ourselves having sacrificed so much for the freedom we all are enjoying today. We salute all of them.

    Asoka Thursday, 26 May 2016 12:42 PM

    definitely not enough...!!

    ABC Thursday, 26 May 2016 12:53 PM

    simple, we all are human being, everyone should disregard innocent mistakes and should respect each other highly despite the status, race or religion.

    Kumar Thursday, 26 May 2016 01:05 PM

    Why is CM's political boss keeping quite? No views!!

    John Thursday, 26 May 2016 01:11 PM

    The Forces cannot dictate to the civilian society over a dispute involving one of their own with a Govt official. The dept of Defence should take up the issue and dimiss the CM EP if necessary but that's for them to decide and NOT for the Army to decide?!

    Hassanda Thursday, 26 May 2016 01:15 PM

    Hon Defence Secy Don't jump your GunOnly the Hon President ( Defence Minister ) can takeSuch decision don't be another Gota However Due respect should be accorded to our Loyal Armed ForcesBut both side of the Coin shud be investigated n wiz The Ground reality n also wat inspired at theVenueShud be referred to the Hon President I don't think a permanent Secy has this Authority

    Poorna Thursday, 26 May 2016 01:46 PM

    This is very unfair and an unacceptable punishment. This man should be stripped off his rank as cheif minister

    Srilankan Thursday, 26 May 2016 02:08 PM

    Get Navy to visit his place at night and knock at the door to find his well being. If not for Navy this fellow must have been hiding under a table during LTTE time...

    sobers Thursday, 26 May 2016 02:21 PM

    Politicians should not think they are above the law. Good move, Discipline is very important. CM,should resign.

    vithura Thursday, 26 May 2016 02:38 PM

    The boundaries of separation between the role of the armed forces and civil admin was deliberately blurred by the previous regime in line with their own agenda in contrary to democratic traditions. Hope this unpleasant episode puts a stop to forces' interference in civil matters, but it does not excuse the CM's behaviour.

    usaguy Thursday, 26 May 2016 02:40 PM

    good decision. some one has to teach these political morons a lesson or two. via DM Android App

    Nihal Jayaweera Thursday, 26 May 2016 02:45 PM

    what a great Secretary of defense, now the same thing will happen in the north too and the same decision will be given where N

    Rocky Thursday, 26 May 2016 03:09 PM

    Salute to Defense Ministry. But its not against Muslims. There are lot of humble and respected Muslims we admire forever like vet.singer Mr.Mohideenbeg.

    Ifham Razie Thursday, 26 May 2016 03:30 PM

    This is not enough though. Pls withdraw all his security, not even gam battas should be given to this mule. Mm

    dess Friday, 27 May 2016 09:27 AM

    No issue, our forces are well geared to handle any situation. They have taken a wise disciplinary decision to keep this CM idiot away.

    RR Friday, 27 May 2016 09:56 AM

    You are absolutely correct. We should not give in to emotions when the security forces are involved in these type of incidents

    Ranjani Friday, 27 May 2016 10:00 AM

    Please stop use of military personal to organize events where politicians participate.

    The God Father Thursday, 26 May 2016 04:56 PM

    Good to see the unity among the three forces, keep t up, but just wonder where was this unity when Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka was humiliated and jailed? Are our forces biased?

    Karathelis Friday, 27 May 2016 10:30 AM

    A person who does not know common courtesy should not talk of protacol.

    Upul Thursday, 26 May 2016 05:16 PM

    Very good decision. I suggest that his security contingent to be removed immediately too.

    Naive citizen Thursday, 26 May 2016 05:17 PM

    Racist media,racist people and racist comment.

    IVJ Thursday, 26 May 2016 05:33 PM

    Agree 100%. Media should stop addressing him as CM as he does not deserve that title. We should teach him the meaning of his famous word "protocol" (the only few words he seems to know).

    moodayoo Friday, 27 May 2016 11:00 AM

    Why should allow him to visit state security facilities? He is just a peanut.

    Vijitha Friday, 27 May 2016 11:01 AM

    Wholeheartedly disagree with CMs behavior. It is disgusting. And if the Governor has acted bit more wisely with the team spirit giving due prominence to CM's on the stage (Not to the person, but for for the Post) this could have been evaded. The need of the house is National Unity. So everyone has a role to play.

    nimal Thursday, 26 May 2016 05:40 PM

    I agree wholeheartedly with Asoka. This punishment (if at all it can be called a punishment) is far from enough. All state sector officials should ignore this man and he should be made to resign.
