Mahanayake of the Malwatte Chapter, Most Ven. Thibbatuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera said Gotabaya Rajapaksa has the potential and experience to tackle the prevailing national security issues in the country.

The Mahanayake Thera expressed these views when Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa visited him along with party leader Mahinda Rajapaksa after seeking blessings from the Sri Dalada Maligawa in Kandy today.

There is a problem with regard to national security and therefore it needs attention. You are the one who can tackle national security issues. You have the experience and potential in that area. We wholeheartedly bless you for coming forward to contest the Presidential election, the prelate added. (J.A.L. Jayasinghe)

    What in the name of God does these Maha Nayakes really know about security except stay within their secure enclosures and indulge in vices unknown to the outside world.
