Responding to recent comments made by UNP MP Harin Fernando, Minister Mervyn Silva said that before trying to sort out issues pertaining to neighbours he should first sort out the issues in Mr. Fernando’s house

Mr. Fernando had told a media conference yesterday that the minister would be chased out by those who voted for him.

The minister’s media spokesman Rehan Wijeratne quoting the minister said, “As a newcomer to politics, Mr. Fernando should not oppose the government just for the sake of opposing. What is required now is constructive criticism and that is not what Mr. Fernando seems to be doing. It’s through this sort of criticism that a new comer can sharpen his skills and also steer the government on the correct path.”

“This is friendly advice from me to Mr. Fernando. You have to sort your own matters if there has to be a political future for you. The UPFA has a disciplinary committee and if I have breached party discipline it will take necessary action. As a UNPer you have to first solve the leadership crisis within your party,” the minister said

    Ok fine.. But WHO is going to sort the country matters out and WHEN? Pass the ball here and there. Poor us will suffer all the time. You people spend the luxury thanks to our tax money. This is damn crazy!

    This [Con]Doctor will never stop from entertaining us. He plays the role of ''Rajagedera kavataya''.God bless this Land for these comic characters.

    Doctor, there is no "Senior" or "Junior" Politicians. Nowerdys rather than the Old Politicians, the new comers are the best choice to express their true views boldly & fearlessly. Hope your BP would have gone up after reading Mr. Fernando's staement.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 13 July 2012 07:38 AM

    Hon. Deputy Minister, this is the right time for you to quit politics and rest at home. Don't wedge against young - upcoming Politicians, as they are very dangerous.

    Amarasinghe Chandika Friday, 13 July 2012 07:40 AM

    Oh, don't argue keep quiet, Fernando's are like Cobras.

    Jayantha Jayamanne Friday, 13 July 2012 07:40 AM

    Now you are in the expiry list, Will you appear in the Sirasa TV today to attack H. Fernando? Don't play games with him.

    John Friday, 13 July 2012 07:49 AM

    ....and educated?

    Shamini Friday, 13 July 2012 04:45 PM

    Yes this gangster is behind the "Kalani Mafia". The latest is his threats to the Kalaniya Pradeshiya Sabha and preventing the collection of garbage in the entire area of Kelaniiya. Not only has he stopped garbage trucks from dumping garbage in the land owned by Kelaniya PS, he has also prevented the Kelaniya garbage from being burnt in an incinerator. This is just to teach the Kelaniya PS a lesson! His high handed thuggery is causing a severe dengue epidemic in Kelaniya.

    Harin's remark must have hurt Mervyn for him to send a reply. Good job Harin.

    Minister Friday, 13 July 2012 07:52 AM

    Get a rope first, and then learn to demonstrate constructive criticism like him!

    nishadha Friday, 13 July 2012 07:55 AM

    "The UPFA has a disciplinary committee and if I have breached party discipline it will take necessary action"

    According to the UPFA code of conduct what you have done so far are not violating the party descipline, that is why you are still not penalized by the party

    Imran Hussein Friday, 13 July 2012 08:18 AM

    'Constructive criticism' - Meaning that 'No one should say a word about us''
    Friendly advice from me' - Meaning that 'you are in my list'.

    'UPFA has a disciplinary committee ' Meaning that 'MR will save me'
    'If I have breached party discipline' - meaning that I am 007 of this regime and I 've license to kill.

    Sammy Friday, 13 July 2012 08:30 AM

    Even the courts have not been able to make you comply with their orders, so have can your party disciplinary committee discipline you.

    sizzler Friday, 13 July 2012 08:35 AM

    Well said Mr. Ministker. I salute for right thinking.

    Yohan Perera Friday, 13 July 2012 09:02 AM

    Well said Man...

    Imran Hussein: Hats off to you, the best comment on this subject/ In this country, when it comes to the pets like Mervyn and Duminda, the word discipline is not found in the "Chinthana" vocabulary.

    Imran Hussein Friday, 13 July 2012 09:25 AM

    I thought for a second you said Mr. Miniskirt, which is more than appropriate sizzler.

    Chandler Friday, 13 July 2012 11:53 PM

    Turn the finger towards you please!

    wimal Friday, 13 July 2012 09:35 AM

    UNP can't you make big protest against this Kalani Mafia. Come to kalaniya we well come you.
