Social Services Minister Felix Perera fell on the Parliament floor yesterday when he was leaving the Chamber after a friendly conversation with actress turned United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Upeksha Swarnamali.

It happened during the committee stage debate of the Health Ministry. Several ministers rushed to the scene to help Mr. Perera. However, he got on his feet and left the Chamber without much ado. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

    Sewala Perera Friday, 23 November 2012 08:29 AM

    Something was leaking apparently!

    sorenson Friday, 23 November 2012 08:42 AM

    From what I understand the minister has made the floor slippery while chatting with the actress and that caused the accident.

    ashok Friday, 23 November 2012 08:54 AM

    May be that he lost his Balance......

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 23 November 2012 09:02 AM

    True but DM policy is appreciable: Felix fallen but Paba gets her photo posted in the front page! Who wants to see Felix anyway!!

    Zolo Friday, 23 November 2012 09:06 AM

    I always ask DM why these kind of stories be the top story of the day!

    It is quite disappointed to see the attitudes of our fellow readers- almost everything is a joke and it politicised. So how can we expect politicians to be any better ?- even a piece of metal falls from the sky and Complains. I think with our good education we have to be more mature. Look at comments on international news papers? - our comments are in a appalling state. I don't know of this will be published but I suggest only worthwhile comments are published

    Ralph Anthony Friday, 23 November 2012 09:30 AM

    Did you go out of balance, going on the wrong part

    Poet Friday, 23 November 2012 09:31 AM

    Daily mirror please do not publish this sort of comments of gross nature. He is
    Leaking .., how disgusting. Felix must have slipped no
    Big deal, happens to all of us . Also this news item is not really news worthy from journalistic point of view.

    Minister Friday, 23 November 2012 08:16 AM

    His knees must have been rattling because the Fisheries Ministry budget debate is next!

    Dr. Sudharma Friday, 23 November 2012 09:49 AM

    Excuse me............... Do we really need to know all these stupid gossip?????????? What a shame of these two reporters. Kindly respect the educated readers of your paper please.

    vj Friday, 23 November 2012 09:58 AM

    Is this news silly, don't these reporters have any thing to do than cheap gossip, go and look for some corrupt politicians and publish those things for benefit of the public

    DUWI Friday, 23 November 2012 10:01 AM

    More than 80,000 voters of the GAMPAHA district who have have fallen before this carming lady during the last General Election must be repenting now!

    Nodrog Friday, 23 November 2012 04:55 AM

    This incident would have been the highlight of a slow day in parliament.

    Don Quixoteote Friday, 23 November 2012 02:40 AM

    faizal Friday, 23 November 2012 02:48 AM

    Minor attack, better stop at this level, to avoid major attack.

    Chryshan K Friday, 23 November 2012 02:48 AM

    This happens to some old men when they talk to a beautiful girl. Talk, leak, slip and fall.

    Rushangan Friday, 23 November 2012 04:40 AM
