Sri Lanka needs a leader who wants all beings to be happy and healthy as it is preached in Buddhism, Minister of Housing and UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa said over the weekend.

Mr. Premadasa said this during an opening of Sanda Dinu Gama reawaken village in Anuradhapura on Saturday.

‘We hear statements where some call for a Hitler type administration in this country. Some say the country need a Mussolini type of administration and others call for an Idi Amin type of administration. These are shameless statements,” Mr. Premadasa said.

“What this country need is a leader who wants beings to be happy and healthy as it is preached in Buddhism. We want people to live in this country,” he added.

One should remember that Hitler killed thousands and thousands of Jews by using poison gas. He therefore, questioned as to how one could call for a Hitler type of administration in Sri Lanka.

“Some claim that they meant that Buddhism in this county should be safeguarded when they called for a Hitler type of administration.

However, one cannot understand how Hitler’s policies and Buddhism could be associated,” he also said. (Yohan Perera)

    But the point is we dont have such a leader!

    Saman Sunday, 01 July 2018 11:24 PM

    Very true. But what Sri Lanka get is either a big thief or a big puppet.

    Cerberus Monday, 02 July 2018 09:38 AM

    If HE thinks he is that person, he should have the guts to say so and challenge for the leadership of the UNP! Why is he waiting to be asked? If so he is NO leader!

    Haramanis Sunday, 01 July 2018 11:30 PM

    Sajith - I think the only way that all beings can be happy under the Yamapalana Govt is to start growing Marijuana

    Tourist Sunday, 01 July 2018 11:56 PM

    Do people of Sri Lanka really have any choice when it comes to future Sri Lankan Presidents.On the opposition side you have Rajapaksa brothers and on the current Government side it is the sons of former Presidents or Senior Ministers.This is not good for the people.

    Hari Mani Monday, 02 July 2018 12:08 AM

    How does he plans to give the happiness? Shows the ignorance of this inexperienced leader. You need a ruler who respects the rule of law and support the growth of the country. Not someone who gives free handouts to win and keep happy. Read what happened to those who were given micro loans in North and east. Most who received had a tamasha with that money and now hide or commit suicide to escape the creditors.

    DJ Monday, 02 July 2018 12:26 AM

    Sajith it is time for you to act strong and take over the leadership. There is very little future for our country with the rest of the 225

    Mandayan Monday, 02 July 2018 02:29 AM

    When you relate nation happiness to a particular religion, you lost that ability to be a common leader. A leader should take a common ground to be acceptable to all.

    Don Monday, 02 July 2018 02:35 AM

    There was a Hitler in SL.You knew him from the day you were born.Figure out who he was.Your sister also knew him from the day she was born

    Manuel Monday, 02 July 2018 03:10 AM

    Noble thoughts but so far only leaders and family have been happy at the expense of poor people.

    Unchikun Monday, 02 July 2018 03:24 AM

    Sorry man, we have heard this "fairy tale" for the last 70 years. We are fed up with you guys. Now we need a new leader with a vision and determination. The golden key is to ride of corruption and that will not come from the Greens and the Blues.

    Gamini Abhydeera Monday, 02 July 2018 04:02 AM

    Yes but not you too. We remember how your Father ruled with iron hand. What we see in you will not be when you become the leader of this country.Your father also responsible for the death of very promiment personal in this country - Ranjan Wijeratne and Denzil K.andn Lalith AIf you read Lalith A interview with the Indian Journalist it listed out thereLIKE FATHER LIKE SON

    lion Monday, 02 July 2018 05:27 AM

    Such a foolish statement, remember no leader in this world can make every one happy.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Monday, 02 July 2018 06:36 AM

    Surely he may be in the heaven or not born yet.

    Basil Monday, 02 July 2018 06:58 AM

    If the country wants to prosper make Mr. Sajith Premadasa the leader.Basil

    Vpl Monday, 02 July 2018 07:10 AM

    Have you got environmental clearance for your housing projects.You making a hainous crime under the guise of housing development.Most of the institutions under your purview are bankrupt. If the people select you as the next leader it would be the biggest mistake this nation does.

    Mosquito Monday, 02 July 2018 07:16 AM

    No Sajith, We need all of you 225 idiots in Parliament right now to just disappear. For us Citizens of Sri Lanka that is TRUE Happinness!

    Ex-voter Monday, 02 July 2018 07:24 AM

    Animal beings also!!???

    Observer Monday, 02 July 2018 07:27 AM

    What about a cardboard Hitler?

    Ceylonese Monday, 02 July 2018 07:29 AM

    Yeh...all beings including who suffers from හීනමාන...(see again this guy's popular clip and see how he acts in front of innocent and poor people. Not only උස සහ කොට please have a close look at his body language )

    Ravi Monday, 02 July 2018 07:30 AM

    Problem is ALL Sri Lankan leaders want is only their happiness. We might have to find a foreigner for that mentality.

    Thanos Monday, 02 July 2018 07:54 AM

    I am sorry Mr. SP. Those are nothing but words, unless you are willing to come forward and take of the leadership and importatntly be the next presidential candidate.

    Liberal One Monday, 02 July 2018 07:54 AM

    Look who's talking? Polpot's son.

    Migrant Monday, 02 July 2018 01:36 PM

    So? He cannot change being the son of Rajasinghe Premadasa. His father does not necessarily reflect him

    Libtard Monday, 02 July 2018 07:57 AM

    You can kill people in this country as long as it's Sinhalese youth. How can otherwise UNP and JVP who killed closer to 100,000 Sinhalese youth combined still preach us like this?

    nk Monday, 02 July 2018 11:22 AM

    Then he can't be a politician

    S. Vitharana Monday, 02 July 2018 12:57 PM

    Then obviously it can not be you Sir!

    Waco Monday, 02 July 2018 01:06 PM

    With little bit more maturity in politics , Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka is the only person we have to strear the country out of crimes and rouges.

    Adurshamana Monday, 02 July 2018 01:23 PM

    What about to have good will to the spirits that protect some very very old properties?

    Patikiriya Monday, 02 July 2018 01:46 PM

    What about heavenly being?

    Sara Monday, 02 July 2018 04:20 PM

    I think he will have to wait till Wijeweera's wife gets a clear answer about her husband who went missing during RP period.

    Dhammika Monday, 02 July 2018 04:42 PM

    Actually SL needs a HONEST leader who with his or her family will not ROB the country .

    Ash Monday, 02 July 2018 06:16 PM

    Please handover the country governance to a corporate entity and have clear, measurable KPIs and accountability

    Gemba Monday, 02 July 2018 09:41 PM

    Religion and Country yikes!

    weera Monday, 02 July 2018 09:56 PM

    Sajith is trying hard to become the President or PM by building houses for the poor. How does he get all the money for these projects? Can somebody answer?

    TONY Tuesday, 03 July 2018 08:58 AM

    WE NEED A LEADER WHO WILL TREAT ALL PEOPLE ALIKE IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR RELIGION OR ETHNICITY. HAPPINESS WILL FOLLOW
