Mahanayakes’ advice not heeded

By Cyril Wimalasurendre

KANDY – The country’s political leadership had failed to respond positively to the advice given by the Mahanayake Theras of the three Nikayas and, therefore, problems the country was faced with had worsened, said General Secretary of the Asgiriya Chapter Venerable Dr. Medagama Dhammananda Nayaka Thera.

 At least one month had passed since President Maithripala Sirisena met the Mahanayake Theras regarding the current situation of the country, Ven. Dr Dhammananda Thera noted.

The prelate said that no action had been taken to address vital issue. He cited as examples the SAITM dispute and Central Bank Bond scams.

 The Thera said the government had failed to prove it practised good governance. The government had not acted in a just and fair manner during period it was in power, he said.

The prelate added that Sangha led by the Mahanayake Theras did not expect material gifts from the government. Instead, they wanted the government to take immediate steps to solve the problems affecting the public.
