Duty of all to support President’s development drive - Asgiriya Chapter Chief Lekakadikari

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s efforts to bring the country back to a stable level after the devastation caused by the COVID pandemic should be supported by all, said Chief Lekakadikari of the Asgiriya Chapter Ven. Medagama Dhammananda Thera.

The Thera said that the vast majority of the people in this country, especially the Maha Sangha, had handed over the country to Gotabaya Rajapaksa with great confidence and that everyone should support his efforts to take the country on the correct path without violating that trust.

The Thera was commenting on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Address to the Nation on Wednesday.

The Thera also appreciated the President’s explanation regarding the economic problems which have arisen in the country as well as the difficulties faced by the people.

He said that the country had problems with economic management for a long time and they were compounded due to the additional burden which came in the form of the pandemic.

“At a time when everyone in the country is in a state of distress, holding protests will only aggravate the situation,” Ven. Dhammananda Thera further said. The Thera stressed that all parties including the Opposition should come together to find solutions to the issues faced by the country as they were all representatives of the people.
