Unparliamentary language used in House

1 April 2019 06:20 pm - 4     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Unparliamentary language was used in the House today during a heated argument which broke out between UPFA Mohan Priyadarashana de Silva and State Minister Ranjan Ramanayake with regard to the selling of vehicle permits. 

The argument popped up when the State Minister said he helped a poor girl by giving some of the money he collected from selling his vehicle permit. He said monetary help was given through the foundation he had formed by selling his permit. 

Mr. de Silva who shot back and said Mr Ramanayake had to face a court case for selling his vehicle permit. “You had to face a court case for selling your vehicle permit to women,” he said. 

The State Minister then responded saying Mr. De Silva had also sold his vehicle permit. “More than 90 percent of MPs have sold their vehicle permits and Mr. de Silva himself had sold his permit. A thief is calling another person a thief,” he said. MP De Silva used un-parliamentary words in snapping back Mr. Ramanayake. However, he justified the use of such an obscene word saying that it should be construed as a negative word. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)
