Eastern Province Chief Minister banned from entering military camps

Nazeer AhamadEastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed has been banned from entering military camps and the security forces will also not attend any functions attended by him.

The move follows an altercation the Chief Minister had with a Navy officer in Sampur last week.

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) had earlier briefed President Maithripala Sirisena on the incident involving Ahamed.

Defence Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi said yesterday the President was briefed over the incident after it was brought to his notice by the Navy.

The Eastern Province Chief Minister had verbally abused the Navy officer in public during the opening ceremony of a science lab and computer unit at the Sampur Maha Vidyalayam.

US Ambassador Atul Keshap was a guest at the event while Governor of the Eastern Province, Austin Fernando was the Chief Guest.

Television footage showed the Chief Minister verbally abusing the Navy officer on stage at the event after accusing him of failing to understand protocol.

During the incident a child was also seen accidentally hit by the hand of the Chief Minister who even accused the Governor of failing to follow protocol.

It was reported that the Chief Minister was angry over the failure by the organisers of the event, which included the Navy, to initially invite him on stage to present gifts to the children.

He had later made his way to the stage uninvited and confronted a Navy officer over the failure to invite him to distribute the gifts. (Colombo Gazette)



  1. This cheap B……d should be severely punished for act. He must be a bloody low level B to behave like this in front of everybody. Open your eyes my dear big bosses in the government. Appoint suitable people for this kind high offices. This ruffian is worse than a thug.

    What a shame for our country in front of the Ambassador.

    Send this Bas…..d home. Else there will be more trouble for the whole clan.

  2. Chief minister needs proper education in the form of punishment and demotion to the lowest level of the government. He has to work for the government under others who were under him (while he was the CM). This thug is behaving badly and drunk with political power. Naval officer behaved with dignity, always with a friendly smiling face. A true son of Sri Lanka.

  3. The Muslim Congress has no option but to call for the guy to resign. How this kind of stupid person can be a Chief Minister only God knows.

    If this Brain Damaged guy had even a small piece of brain left in his head he should by now tender his resignation.

    I am sure he is not only brain damaged but shameless as well to be in the scene after doing all the bad deeds and also trying to justify his behavior.

    He is a shame to the Muslim Community. Of course he does’nt represent the Muslim Community.

    Ego Maniacs like this cannot belong to the Muslim Community.

    He should have been more patient instead of taking the empty position of CM to his head.

  4. This guy is an idiot. How did this guy even become a chief minister?!? Oh wait.. It’s the wonder of Asia. Absolutely un-characteristic and shows the plight of our politicians in front of a diplomat. We have a loooooooong way to go for Real development!! This is how the general image is.. All suited up, but within in it..is a dumbass!

  5. This foolish Idiot has to be arrested by the Navy who does not know the duty of a civil politician and the “Military Law”. Not only this “Fool” but not even the “Minister of Justice” or the “Prime Minister” cannot give any order or get in to the “Military Base” with out permission from the “President” as “President” is the “Chief of Command” of all three forces in accordance to the constitution of Srilanka at present.

  6. For me this Guy is either a swollen headed Politician just like some of our `Sinhala Political Jokers I mean some of our MPs or Ministers who think no end of themselves OR a Mentally retarded who needs treatment. He looks a Mental Case, I wonder how he came to this Position. Our Politicians should understand that respect ‘Leaving alone the so called protocol” cannot be demanded if you are down to earth and humble , people will carry you to the stage, its your education, background and upbringing….this fellow looks a good for nothing rascal .

  7. Remove his Chief ministerial Post & sent him to jail for abusing a top class navel officer.

  8. This idiot should be kicked out and sent home. Also must be punished by law for indecent behaviour in public as well as assaulting a child.

  9. This is a temporary measure to fool the armed forces.(Maximum validity of this order is 2 weeks)
    This guy can even enter to Army head quarters or Panagoda camp whenever he wants as this gutless government depend on Muslim and Tamil votes for their survival.

    • I am very happy that a member of the Sinhala Community declares that the Yahapalana government was brought to power on January the 8th, 2016 (Presidential elections) and the (General Elections) of August 17th., 2016 by the MUSLIM and TAMIL votes. That is the fact and real TRUTH. But politicians are NOT willing to accept the REALITY and the Sinhala votes which is divided between the 74 % of the Sri Lanka population is FIGHTING between themselves that it was one side or the other of the Sinhala votes that made President Maithripala (under Hansaya) to win and or Mahinda Rajapaksa (under the betel leaf symbol) to loose at the presidential elections. Mahinda lost to Maithripala Sirisena by 400,000 votes.These were the tipping the balance votes. The UPFA fought with the United National Front for Good Governance and secured 96 parliament seats contra the UNFGG secured 106 parliament seats. The 400,000 votes majority came to President Maithripala Sirisena from the Muslim votes viz-a-viz the Aluthgama/Beruwela violence and a large portion of the Tamil votes from the North. Still a fair amount of Muslims voted from the East for Mahinda, though he lost. When balancing the Sinhala votes of both the UPFA and the UNFGG, the difference of around 10 parliamentary seats majority for the Maithripala-Ranil UNFGG government came from the TNA and Muslims voted Muslim candidates who contested under the UNFGG (Elephant) symbol. So Udara is quite correct to say that the Maithripala/Ranil government was brought to power by the Muslims and the Tamils. The Tamils have gained much with this victory, but the poor political orphans who believed and trusted the Yahapalana campaign have been thrown into the political dust bin by President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremasinghe. Those so-called Muslim party leaders and their stooges and the leader of the TNA have benefited much for themselves. The Sinhala people have ONLY being fighting, sad to sad and loosing a country that could have progressed to prosperity by the grace of God AllMighty.

    • These Jokers are not fit to hold public Office. They only bring disgrace to our Country. Kick him out, to teach a lesson to other similar Jokers before they too follow this idiot.

  10. It would have been more appropriate if he had taken up the matter with concerned Senior Officers, Ministers, PM and HE, if at all the Navy Officer or Government had violated the protocol, instead of displaying anger in public that too in front of the school children.. Our politicians got to learn a lot….

  11. Send him home. No excuse for treating the srilankan forces or for that matter any human being like rubbish. None deserve it, specially from a so called public servant like him. Whichever the government, if it promotes individuals who are uneducated, who doesn’t know or understand what being a gentleman is all about, then this is what people will get. And as a government who promised to do better than the previous regime, hope at least this time they would take some action.

  12. The navy Officer did not have an altercation BUT it was this uncouth Chief Minister who became Voice Ferocious against this Naval Officer.
    Indeed the Chief Minister with an undeclared motive that had nothing to do with the Naval Officer took the form of a Canine and released a burst of barks by berating the unsuspecting Naval Officer.

    Where do we go from here? To cage the Chief Minister?
    Who will carryout? The Governor or the Public or the Forces?
    Now the chief Minister must have begun to sulk at home for his idiotic behaviour which impressed none.
    Atul Keshap got a fiery baptism of to accept from Yahapalanaya.
    Hope by now he has sent a memo to Wiki Leaks than to the State department.

    • Can someone put out the scene on the run up to this incident to check on the build up to it. That may give more clarity to the situation where he burst out.
