Most Ven. Warakagoda Gnaratana Mahanayake Thera of the Asgiriya Chapter has urged the Chief Minister of the Northern Province, make use of his office at the periphery to address the day to day problems of the people of the north for they desire to co-exist with other communities and lead a peaceful life by resolving their day to day problems rather than divide the country.
He added that this is what he observed during his recent visit to the North. He had the opportunity to interact with religions dignitaries as well as ordinary people during his northern visit. The North Provincial Council should extend its fullest support to the central government to enable it to attain its socio-economic development goals.
The Asgiriya Chief Prelate made the observation delivering an Anusasana when Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran called on him at his temple in Kandy and received his blessings.
He pointed out that the people in the rest of the country at large who were battered by a 30 year cruel war also had the same aspiration rather than a division of the country.
