    Largely true.. most sangha are corrupt... but shouldn't have mentioned so in public. This government has angered the maha sangha and that one reason for the defeat.

    That’s a honest comment from the MP. Is honesty a crime now?

    To be honest, what Mangala said is ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

    We are living in a democratic and civilised society. As such we can get blessing selectively. What stupid these guys in yellow fancy dress are. As from my comment I am in full agreement Mangala's tweet.

    Mangala should be worshiped for saying the obvious .

    What's wrong in it the way the monks behaved publicly during the voting will make a common man also angry. Monks should correct their behaviour.
