Malwatte, Asgiriya Chapters to announce common stand

The common stand of the Malwatte and Asgiriya Chapters on the new Constitution will be announced after the members of the Karaka Sangha Sabhas of the two Chapters have discussions with the Malwatte and Asgiriya Chief Prelates on their return from abroad, said Ven. Anamaduwe Dhammadassi Anunayake Thera of the Asgiriya Chapter.

Ven. Anamaduwe Dhammadassi Anunayake Thera said the subject had already been discussed by members of the two Karaka Maha Sangha Sabhas.

Ven. Dhammadassi Anunayake Thera was speaking at a ceremony held at the Pitiyegedara Rajamaha Viharaya, Wattegama on October 20.

The Anunayake Thera said the country today is witnessing a rare opportunity where the two main parties had come together to form a national government. Every one should try to introduce a lasting common national policy which would not change with the change of governments in future.

The Anunayake Thera said problems should be resolved through dialogue. Therefore, the background should be prepared to protect and safeguard Sinhala Buddhists and members of other communities and strengthen religious harmony in the country. “Despite opposition, the country needed Expressways and as such, work should go ahead by resolving the issues raised by opponents. In addition to the Central Expressway, more Expressways should be added to the country’s road network,” the Anunayake Thera said.
