When MP Geetha Kumarasinghe asked a question from Highways and Higher Education minister Lakshman Kiriella in parliament yesterday (04), he gave her a vulgar answer. She asked as to why the extension of the southern highway from Matara to Beliatte was yet to be completed. Minister Kiriella gave a lewd answer, saying the work was on its final stage, and that if needed he could accompany her to inspect the work. MPs who relish immorality welcomed his remark with laughter. It cannot be surmised that parliament comprised babies who could not understand the double-meaning of what Kiriella said. But, when a female MP was ridiculed at the country’s most supreme institution merely because of being a woman, there was no one to oppose it. That is how things work in a Sri Lanka that boasts about its culture and civilization.
