I have more important things to do-Mervyn

E-mail Print
Minister Mervyn Silva said that as a cabinet minister he has more important matters to attend to rather than look into his son’s alleged involvement in an assault on an Army officer.

“If my son has assaulted somebody, the Police and the law enforcement authorities in the country will take relevant steps. I’m a cabinet Minister and I have more important matters to attend to than look into this,” he said

Discipline begins at home! Correct your son first before correcting somebody else's

You need to start another 'Satyagraha' at home to make sure that your son stops his 'manslaughter' activities. 'Show off' satyagraha against animal sacrifice alone is not enough.

He has to attend work of goats as the cabinet minister of public relations, no time to look for son's work.

Involving in the affairs of goats also a function of the Cabinet Minister, I suppose. Then, he is Dr. Eluson de Silva, the Minister of "Goat & Fowl" Affairs, with special emphasis on "Slaughter for Kali God"!

That is exactly the problem. He doesn't have time or care for kids..so kids become thugs..

If I were you I resign as a minister and help kids to become good. If you cant sort your family out..how you going to do to country?

Queen has Corgis as favourite dogs..some other leaders seems like different varieties..

By more important work, he means saving goats, because he knows very well that a goat is definitely more important than his son, who takes after him!

Mervin Silva was spotted with his son and family including Hirunika Premachandra at the Kelaniya Temple by hundreds of people including the Police.There is a picture of the man in the Times. Are the Cops playing blind man games. with instructions from the top?

Before becoming minister, he became a father. As a father his job was not done (as we see from the story). As a minister.......? He got second highest preferential votes from Gampaha where we have some best educational institutes. Is that means according to SLS, he is a good minister and a father?

So he admits that goats and chicken more important than his son!!!

In this case he is correct.

Fix your home first. Then you can worry about the country. Obviously you cant even be in charge of your home affairs.
If you are who you claim to be then tie the hooligan up to a tree and punish him publicly. Pigs will fly before this happens.
