Opposition member Dinesh Gunawardena said that the words used by Fernando was unparliamentary and should not be repeated in future.
Gunawardena said the unparliamentary words were used during a heated exchange between the Minister and former Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage.
Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said an investigation has been launched into the words used by the Minister.
Fernando was heard saying “mother f*****” in Sinhalese but the words were later removed from the video posted on the Parliament website. (Colombo Gazette)
