    And by the Govt

    Modaya Friday, 06 May 2011 09:55 AM

    Red shirt is it a problem I don't know. Also MPs cant know the norms because first they need to learn to read.

    S. Aran Johnny Saturday, 07 May 2011 12:03 PM

    Good spot Bro. No I am not into politics, but I was obviously sleepy when I made this comment :)

    Lankaputhra Friday, 06 May 2011 10:56 AM

    He should have worn a blue shawl - then the red would have been forgotten. Is shirt colour mentioned in the parliamentary dress code?

    Brenan Friday, 06 May 2011 02:06 AM

    Good one..lol

    Kari Friday, 06 May 2011 02:42 AM

    Why only about the dress? What about discipline inside the house of Parliment.

    Uglytruth Friday, 06 May 2011 03:28 AM

    Nice fellow...must on his way to market

    Fayad Friday, 06 May 2011 03:11 AM

    This nothing to do with democracy, its against Parliamentary norms.
    Read properly before commenting.

    jainul abdeen Friday, 06 May 2011 03:29 AM

    Maybe he is trying to make a Fashion Statement at the Big House in Diyawanna! Already there are fashion designers MPs, Models and Actor and Actresses are there!

    Allangle Friday, 06 May 2011 03:57 AM

    Good action and it would be highly appreciated ethics and norms are adopted everywhere in all matters.

    Knight Rider Friday, 06 May 2011 03:59 AM

    also they should be trained on social ethics before they get on the streets.

    JPD Friday, 06 May 2011 04:07 AM

    red shawl allowed but not red shirt!!!!

    Oyage sudu kella Friday, 06 May 2011 04:23 AM

    What dress code ? This is like a fishmarket, ney.

    Holman Friday, 06 May 2011 04:24 AM

    Shawl is not red - "kurahan" colour, so no prob.

    Karthik Friday, 06 May 2011 05:09 AM

    I saw rosy and paba wearing red saree in several occasions in parliament ... is that not against Parliamentary norms?

    Epa Friday, 06 May 2011 04:52 AM

    Mr,Speaker thanks for action. interior motive is something deference

    prabath Friday, 06 May 2011 05:11 AM

    He wanted to show that he wants to join with JVP

    Knight Rider Friday, 06 May 2011 05:15 AM

    yes, and he got the attention of the all the media channels, this is called political propaganda !

    yohes Friday, 06 May 2011 05:54 AM

    yes he will get more votes next time a rebel

    Safeek Friday, 06 May 2011 06:44 AM

    Hey! poor MPs still you do not know the protocol and etiquette. how you are going to lead the community?
    poor Leaders ........poor country

    Siva Friday, 06 May 2011 07:27 AM

    It is better to have some criteria for the dress before enter the parliment

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Friday, 06 May 2011 07:32 AM

    Boss, the news is about a Shirt, and how did you change it to trousers??Do you do politics?

    Tonto Friday, 06 May 2011 07:42 AM

    The guy must have thought that he was entering a circus grounds, that what Parliament really is, isn't it?

    lankaputha Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:22 PM

    may be he wanted to show the world that still blood stains are there of the civilians killed by the LTTE. Poor soul.

    citizen1 Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:30 PM

    Big deal! They place more importance on someone's pants than country's real issues!!

    kumaraya Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:21 PM

    These people who are not really interested in democratic processes should never be let in to the Parliament.

    tharanga Friday, 06 May 2011 08:43 AM

    mr.siva ,already there is a specific criteria.

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:28 PM

    All three parliament uniform & norms must teach before enter to parliament.

    MP Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:52 PM

    Why the parliament do not take any action against those who behave unruly manner?

    hrm Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:52 PM

    before that he should know basic etiquette and norms.

    malkanthi Friday, 06 May 2011 09:05 AM

    According to Sri Lankan parliament rules, females MPs should wear saris when they are participating in the parliament proceedings. I have not read anything to do with the colour.

    S Aran Johnny Thursday, 05 May 2011 03:05 PM

    Maybe that was the only pair of trousers that fitted the "poor" guy :)
