Speaker tells Parliamentarians to mind their language

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today urged Parliamentarians to mind their language after a heated exchange between Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake and the joint opposition.

The heated exchange of words was over the Deputy Minister recently warning a Government officer in connection to a land excavation issue.

Ramanayake had recently verbally abused the Divulapitiya Divisional Secretary.

The issue arose in Parliament and Ramanayake and some opposition members used un-parliamentary language during the exchange.

The Speaker later ordered some words used to be removed from the Hansard and he urged the Parliamentarians to be mindful of their language. (Colombo Gazette)
