Chief Prelate of Malwathu Chapter bans visits from all politicians

Chief Prelate of Siam Order and Malwathu Chapter Most Venerable Thibbatuwawe Sri Sumangala Thero has decided not to visit any politician in Sri Lanka. Making his decision into effect, the Chief Prelate has instructed the senior prelates of his Chapter to ban visits from all politicians.

The decision comes in following the negligence received as response to the letter containing six proposals tendered given by the Maha Sangha to the President, the Prime Minister and several Political Party leaders on saving the country from the crisis befallen it. The letter is believed to have contained proposals to establish an all-party interim government.

The Opposition Leader and a group of Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MPs visited Kandy recently to hand over the SJB-adapted 21st Amendment to the Constitution, but the delegation was not allowed to visit the Chief Prelate of the Siam Order and Malwathu Chapter. A group of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MPs who arrived in Kandy on April 29 to visit the Thera was not allowed to meet him either.

Meanwhile, the Chief Prelates of the Tri-Order of Buddhism have also decided to hold a discussion with all political party leaders representing Parliament on the country’s crisis situation.
