Maha Sangha wants to remember Gotabaya as twice saviour of “Sri Lanka”

[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 April 2020, 11:07 GMT]
The Sinhala Theravada-Buddhist Maha Sangha has said that SL President Gotabaya Rajapaksa “will be remembered as a leader who saved the country twice,” according to a news statement issued by SL Presidential Secretariat on Thursday. The Nayaka Theros of all the three Chapters of the Maha Sangha were approving the conduct of Mr Gotabaya, especially with regards to his position on not reconvening the SL Parliament which was dissolved by him on 02 March.

In return, the Maha Sangha seems to have gained Gotabaya’s support “to develop unutilized lands belonging to temples”.

The development of unutilized lands belonging to temples implies occupation of Tamil-heritage related lands in the North and East and converting them as Sinhala-Buddhist properties, commented Tamil political observers in Jaffna.

Gotabaya has also promised the chief prelates of the Maha Sangha to meet them regularly every month on the third Friday.
