Controversial Member of Parliament Mervyn Silva who was well know for his anti media stunts including the forceful entry into the state owned Rupavahini was sworn in today as the Deputy Media Minister before President Mahinda Rajapakse.

While taking oaths, the Deputy Minister was seen showing his arm to the President and explaining something which had happened to him and when he was about to sign his official document, the pen on the table failed to write and he had to use his own pen.

Mervyn Silva has been well known for his many attacks against organizations such as Sirasa and the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation where he was taken hostage by the employees when he tried to assault senior staff members.

Some of those who had condemned Mervyn Silva for this attack were then Minister of Media Anura Priyadarshana Yapa and SLFP General Secretary Maithripala Sirisena.
