Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne alleged that he was labelled a drug dealer (Kudda) by some faction in robes, soon after he proposed to set up two Courts (Sanga Adhikarana) for Buddhist monks to act against errant Bhikkus.

Speaking at an event in Udahamulla, the Premier also said, “Some of the Bhikkus are currently serving prison terms, some are claiming that they had attained state of ‘rahath’. Some of their junior monks came to me seeking my help. I told them that I was also interested in attaining state of ‘rahath’, and asked him to send their teacher to me. So we call them men in robes. That is why I proposed to set up two Sanga Adhikaranas. Then suddenly they labelled me a drug dealer,” he said.(Muditha Dayananda)

    I'm sure he and those in his ministry would have attained the state of ‘rahath" if the drugs had got out.

    Establishing Sanga Adhikarana is a good move.

    The boss of 'Kuddas' is naturally a Kudda even if doesn't consume the stuff.
