Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesteday that he wishes well the national government formed by the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

He said he was laughed at when he spoke about a national government during the war and that he was not going to criticise this national government because he was politically resting now.

Following a prefects’ investiture ceremony held at the Samarasinharama Dhamma school in Thelijjawila, Matara, Mr. Rajapaksa, in answer to  a question by a media person as to whether the present government was good for the country, said that it remained be seen.

He said, “I have nowhere to go these days,  except temples. I accept invitations from Dhamma schools. The children who come from the distant areas speak of the success of Dhamma schools. A Dhamma school is a good place for producing a disciplined set of people.”

He added that his government began to develop the country as a result of which people could travel to distant places in a few minutes, whereas it had formerly taken hours.

“According to Buddhist doctrine we are able to face victory and defeat in the same manner. Children should be able to face victory and defeat alike. Do not betray the country. Respect the country in the same way you respect your parents, he said.

The former president distributed medals to 108 prefects.

Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena, MPs Dallas Alahapperuma and Chandrasiri Gajadeera, and several other persons also participated in the event.(Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

    MR is so happy about this move now its because... his thugs, thiefs are appointed as ministers. And also easily he can get hidden news of the government move and to play back with it. This is what this greedy famine bird spy wants finally....

    Suq Madique Monday, 23 March 2015 10:46 AM

    Suddenly MR has become wise and holy. Now must be regretting the many steps he should have taken instead of those he did take. Too late now!

    Dear Sir Please better refrain from at least this Dhamma schools which have not been hitherto desecrated by you and your barbarian regime ,so leave them work alone on their way without being corrupted intact.

    Greed for power over people !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pushpakumara Tuesday, 24 March 2015 09:46 AM

    There are so many allegations against you and your family. Until you prove these allegations are lies you should not talk about politics and your future plans. I am sure your successor is a genuine man and he is capable of running this country democratically. You failed as a leader by misleading our country on the wrong path with your goons.

    Since we are on the topic of buddhism, read up on Thanha (Greed)
