Police Chief Pujith Jayasundara had to wait for a long time at the special guests gate leading to the special closet in the first floor where the Sacred Tooth Relic is deposited when he visited the Sri Dalada Maligawa to pay homage during the New Year.

The IGP who was dressed in a white sarong and a white long sleeved shirt carrying a tray of flowers had to wait there to enter the special closet as the gate was not opened.

After some time, he was able to enter and pay homage when the gate was opened. (J.A.L.Jayasinghe and Chandana Uduwawala)

    Lord Buddha was a greatest socialist the world has seen. So why these VIP gates?

    The Dhamma is twisted to meet the agendas of priests.

    Seeking the divine intervention for another year maybe. Also Hon IGP please make your new year resolutions right by commiting that ull never answer phones calls in front of media and never cry in front of the public.

    The special gate will lead to discrimination.

    I don't think Lord Buddha had a VIP gate at his Jethawanaraama for privileged people.

    Sacred relics should be protected but all should be able to see and pay respects the sacred relics. When the Buddha was alive there were no security guards except Ven. Ananda Thero.

    There is no VIP in front of GOD. I am glad he waited for his turn and only the people make them important . He seems to be a Good man.
