There is a former purohita now in hot water over his doings in the yahapalanaya days.There are allegations that this politico had become super-rich overnight as an owner of large estates and other sources of income.
By the way, he also had to face criticisms in the past for causing irreparable damage to a wildlife sanctuary in Wayamba.
Realizing the value of the goodwill, support and the blessings of religious dignitaries at a moment of crisis like the one he is faced with, the politico had sought an audience with the
prelates of both Asgiriya and Malwatte Chapters to pour out his heart.
He has yet to receive a positive response from both chapters. However, he has not given up hope, they say.
