Speaker Chamal Rajapakse today warned Deputy Highways Minister Mervyn Silva that he will be sent out of the chamber if he continues to behave in an unruly manner inside the parliament premises.

Minister Silva had attempted to angrily answer a question raised by DNA MP Sunil Handunnetti regarding the “Api Wenuwen Api” funds in parliament today and had to remain quiet after the Speaker's stern warning. (Daily Mirror online)

    Mr. Speaker, Please maintain the dignity of the Parliament. Please discipline all the unruly members.

    D.Navaratne Wednesday, 30 June 2010 06:23 PM

    Mr. Speaker, when you were elected to this exalted position, everyone thought that this was yet another gift to the Rajapakse family. You have proved us wrong!

    citizen1 Wednesday, 30 June 2010 05:57 PM

    M.H.Sheriff Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:40 PM

    Show it in deed Mr Speaker.

    Wijewardena Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:20 PM

    But MR will pardon him. It is President's power mervin enjoys.

    Kumar Wijayasekara Wednesday, 30 June 2010 12:53 PM

    Well done Mr. Speaker. We had a clown in our last parliament as a speaker who didn't have any control.

    Marikar Wednesday, 30 June 2010 12:45 PM

    CONGRATULATIONS! Mr. Speaker, keep it up.
    This man should be put in HIS PLACE.

    Freeman Wednesday, 30 June 2010 06:50 AM

    Village lad Wednesday, 30 June 2010 09:57 AM

    Mr Speaker....we appreciate your unbiased action in parliament.FOr the last few years parliament had been controlled by few thugs.

    Hash Wednesday, 30 June 2010 08:34 AM

    Is this really happening in Sri Lanka !! ? If so, Way to go Speaker !!!

    Naveen Wednesday, 30 June 2010 08:30 AM

    Our hats off to you Sir! Discipline comes first.

    akoon Wednesday, 30 June 2010 08:22 AM

    Honurable Speaker,
    You are the only speaker who could make the parliament a decent place where school children can visit.
    Unruly behaviours within the parliament was seen throughout the last decade. Only a member of Rajapaksha family can do this. Rajapaksha as a defence secretary made the family proud now it's your turn hon. speaker.

    Sena2 Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:30 AM

    Let us hope that the Hon. Speaker will succeed in his efforts to institute discipline in the House.

    MK Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:18 AM

    Thank you Mr Speaker for putting him in the right place. Mervyn badly needed to hear this from a member from his own side. Hope our president will be as brave as Chamal. Good job!!

    Matara Kolla Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:11 AM

    If a Honourable Member behaves in a matter that will be shameful and disruptive, he should be ejected, no matter what the rank is. The chamber in not an open arena to show off, but the most important institution to conduct the affairs of the country. The law should prevail inside as well as outside.

    Ramzeel Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:07 AM

    Do it Mr. Speaker and show that you are made of a sterner stuff than Mervyn.

    Tharaka Chanaka Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:02 AM

    Do all "doctorates" behave like this??...

    SUMINA Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:00 AM

    MR.SPEAKER, WE APPRECIATE YOUR ACTION BUT HE (MERVYN .S ) DOES NOT KNOW ANYOTHER WAY TO BEHAVE !

    keliya thaapeta Wednesday, 30 June 2010 06:50 AM

    Come on Mr. Speaker, way to go. You need someone who will put this guy in his place. Think he will finally meet his waterloo.
