Maha Sangha expresses appreciation of President Gotabayas leadership

The Maha Sangha has expressed its appreciation of President’s leadership in protecting the people from the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuilding the country in the face of challenges and economic hardships.

They expressed this appreciation during the 12 th meeting of the Buddhist Advisory Council held at the Presiential Secretariat on Friday, January 21. The Prelates observed:

“It is the responsibility of all parties to unite to achieve the aspirations of the people by placing trust on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as a visionary and pragmatic leader.

We appreciate the President’s leadership in protecting the people from the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuilding the country in the face of challenges and economic hardships.

The trust placed in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the only leader who was able to save the country, the nation and the heritage that was deteriorating has not been diminished and the people should be made aware of the steps that were taken by the President during the last two years to protect the Kuragala Sacred Area, the Muhudu Maha Vihara and other temples in the North and East.

It should be the responsibility of the Buddhist Advisory Council to provide factual information regarding the issues faced by the people of the country and to assist the President in finding solutions.

Addressing the event, President Gotabaya observed that he expected the guidance of the Maha Sangha to adopt laws and on national dialogues. He also assured that as the Sinhala-Buddhist heritage, which was on the verge of extinction, was preserved despite the COVID-19 obstacles, steps would be taken to develop those historic sites while continuing the task to fulfill the aspirations of the majority of the people.

The Maha Sangha, who are the members of the Buddhist Advisory Council, State Minister Vidura Wickremanayake, Secretary to the President Gamini Senarath, Principal Advisor to the President Lalith Weeratunga, Secretaries to Ministries and Government Officials were also present."
