Minister, we admire your struggle for these innocent children but this last attempt is a foolish decision.

Now he should be shot left right and center to go to a public institute....to a SCHOOL...i mean a SCHOOL!!! HE should have been directed to the mental ward not to a hospital!!!

Seriously? I understand his frustration of not being heard by the relevant authorities, but what a silly thing to do! How does it help the situation?

This Stupid idiot must be charged with the normal law of the country for the attempt of suicide. Drama Kings of a sad nation.

What a shame? This minister is a real fool!!! He should not have to face this fate by being in the government. He is unnecessarily trying to involve in others' affairs. Let him seek the assistance of MR and see .... All drama ...

It is quite obvious when looking at this video that this was all an act. This fool had no intention of killing himself. He got himself into a corner that he couldn't get out of by claiming he would resign from the Government and seek MR's assistance. when this didn't work he decided to blackmail the Principal by pretending to hang himself. He is nothing but a criminal for behaving this way particularly in front of very young children. There were enough of his assistants to stop him hanging himself. Charge him!

A Govt. Deputy Minister behaves like this at a school in front of children? Is this the level of intelligence of politicians in our country? God help Sri Lanka!

The most compelling question (at least for me) is why didn't anyone actually turn on the fan?

I am sure he was aware that there was a power black out at the time. So turning the fan on did not make a difference. People in public life are supposed to be role models esspecilly for school chidren. What a joke . This is an idiot of the highest highest grade
