Highlighting that he had received complaints from senior public servants that MPs have been making unfair allegations against them, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena today requested the MPs to refrain from criticizing these officers. 

"Critical comments made by the MPs on public servants will be expunged from Hansard in the future," he said. 

"It is unfair on the part of MPs to criticize public servants as they have no way of responding to the allegations made against them. If the MPs need to question any public official, they can summon such officials to Parliament and do so," he said.

    Worst speaker ever in the history of Sri Lanka.

    Niladarivadaya is not new word Wednesday, 06 March 2024 07:27 AM

    This is the "modus operandi" used by the GREAT socialist leader NMPerera and his LSSP. They coined the word "Niladharivadaya" to attack any public servant, but taking cover of Parliament Privilege. Great administrators like Rampala and Kulatunge left Govt. Service, nation suffered.
