The Maha Sangha pointed out that it is the responsibility of all parties to unite to achieve the aspirations of the people by placing trust on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as a visionary and pragmatic leader. They appreciated the President’s leadership in protecting the people from the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuilding the country in the face of challenges and economic hardships. The Maha Sangha pointed out that the trust placed in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the only leader who was able to save the country, the nation and the heritage that was deteriorating has not been diminished and the people should be made aware of the steps that were taken by the President during the last two years to protect the Kuragala Sacred Area, the Muhudu Maha Vihara and other temples in the North and East.

The President stated that he expects the guidance of the Maha Sangha to adopt laws and on national dialogues.
