‘Prime Minister Rajapaksa, a far-sighted leader’

President Maithripala Sirisena's decision to appoint MP Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister should be hailed as the newly-appointed PM was a far-sighted leader, Kataragama Abinawaramaya Chief Incumbent Ven. Kapugama Sri Saranatissa Thera said.

Prime Minister Rajapaksa's name went down in Sri Lanka's history as the leader who freed it from terrorism, the thera said.

During the previous regime, the country's economy had crashed, while its resources were sold to other countries, he said, adding that the new Prime Minister would take measures to counter those issues.
