President of the ‘Pevidi Handa’ Organization, Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero said that the present government had committed more corrupt acts in just two years than Mahinda Rajapaksa did across a period of ten years.
Even though former President Mahinda Rajapaksa committed acts of corruption, he still rendered a service to the country, Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero pointed out.
The Thero stated this upon attending a media briefing of the ‘Pevidi Handa’ Organization in the morning today (13).
Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero also declared that the country had now fallen down a precipice.
The Thero stated that no other government in Sri Lanka had faced as many contretemps as the present government had since 1948, and added that what the country needed now was not a constitution, but a way to survive.
Ven. Muruththetuwe Ananda Thero said that since ancient times, the Maha Sangha had stepped in when the country was in trouble, and that once again they could not stand by and watch patiently while the present government followed a course of action that was not in the best interests of the public.
The Mahanayake Theros will be consulted as soon as possible, and a large-scale congregation of the Maha Sangha will be arranged soon, the Thero said.
