Democratic Left Front Leader Vasudeva Nanayakkara and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe embroiled themselves in a heated exchange of words in Parliament today.

The two leaders started the dust up with each other during cross talk over the request for an urgent debate in the House on the report by the panel of lawyers who examined the controversial Central Bank bond issue.

Mr. Nanayakkara, who rose on a point of order, appeared to be furious after the Prime Minister made certain remarks asking him to sit down. He shot back at the Prime Minister with a verbal harangue for a few minutes.

At one point, Mr. Nanayakkara said, "Who the hell are you ask me to sit down?

The Prime Minister also responded, but his words could not be heard properly in the press gallery apparently due to his mike being switched off at the time. However, once he was heard saying, "You have not shaved your beard even. At least, shave your beard and come."

It was a moment of amusement for some opposition and government members as they giggled and thumbed their desks upon hearing various remarks during the cross talks marked with certain obscenities at times.

The public gallery was full of school children at the time, and Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa alerted it to the House.

"Please mind that there are school children in the gallery viewing the proceedings," he said. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

    We all knew Vasu was a low down politician. He has achieved a new low. via DM Android App

    what a low level the parliament has stooped down to.. gone are the days when there were educated refined politicians

    Aba Jayasekera Saturday, 23 May 2015 10:08 AM

    What more can you expect from Vasu ? He is the man who said " Democracy is safe as long as Mahinda is there! "

    dilip Friday, 22 May 2015 09:24 AM

    Well done Mr Nanayakkara. You can speak fearlessly unlike others since you are an honorable politician. Good lesson for this cardboard hero.

    jay Friday, 22 May 2015 04:53 PM

    Vasu is an old codger who should retire and go home gracefully instead of making a fool of himself.who is going to vote for you?

    de silva Friday, 22 May 2015 04:57 PM

    Which fools elected this person.If he does not know how to behave in the Parliament the Speaker should have ousted him

    Aba Jayasekera Sunday, 24 May 2015 05:45 AM

    This is the man who said at an interview some time ago in the Daily Mirror that " Democracy iv Sri Lanka is safe so long as Mahinda is there"

    Seems like ranil is making hay while the sun shines.

    Punchirala Friday, 22 May 2015 11:36 AM

    I think Vasu is the leader of Undemocratic Left Front...

    Piumi Friday, 22 May 2015 05:57 PM

    Filthy words are not acceptable at any level.

    Piumi Friday, 22 May 2015 05:58 PM

    Learn from the youngsters how they speak at the Parliament. Very attractive and professional. Speak the truth.

    Sri Lankan Saturday, 23 May 2015 01:23 PM

    The speaker should have named Vasu and expelled him from the Chambers for at least a month.It is a pity that the Speaker pays to the gallery and does not maintain discipline in the Parliament.it is a shame on you Mr. Speaker

    D Setunga Friday, 22 May 2015 11:53 AM

    Differences and opinions could be spoken in a much civilized manner and such behaviour is a discrimination to our country to the open world in the manner certain ministers conduct themselves in parliament. Dear President, it is an important factor to impose a code of conduct in parliament so that in the future, such unacceptable behaviour would not continue and bring shame on the citizens of Sri Lanka.

    pradeep_kumar_jude Friday, 22 May 2015 12:07 PM

    Shame Shame Puppy Shame on Vasu!!!

    rana. Friday, 22 May 2015 12:38 PM

    Little respect I had for you is gone now. People will teach you the lesson you deserve at next election so you can enjoy life at home like MR.

    Yahapalan Friday, 22 May 2015 12:50 PM

    Hope the schools got disclaimers signed by parents before embarking on this dangerous tour

    Sarojini Rajapakse Friday, 22 May 2015 06:41 PM

    Is Vasu a man or an old discarded lady in society has he got friends other than the illiterate Wimal Weerawangsa /Buruwangsa. Vasu deserves a bed in the home for the aged. What politics for these beggars.

    sarojini Rajapakse Friday, 22 May 2015 06:42 PM

    Imprison this SOB Vasu.

    Sarojini Rajapakse Friday, 22 May 2015 06:44 PM

    Imprison this SOB Vasu he should be expelled from parliament.

    Mohan G. W. Friday, 22 May 2015 01:57 PM

    The PM seems to get very uneasy at the mention of the CB bond issue.
