Minister of State Sanath Nishantha says that there is a doubt in his conscience as to whether the present government is taking steps to protect those who did not act to prevent the Easter attack.
“Our cardinal is a leader with a strong backbone. At first glance, his words may seem offensive to some. But whether he is angry or not, there is truth in what he says. I also have an opinion on this.
My heart speaks as a man of conscience as a Catholic, if the then IGP, the then-Defense Secretary, if the President Sirisena is not brought in to get a statement, it is doubtful whether the government is protecting them in any way.
Minister of State Sanath Nishantha said this while participating in the opening ceremony of the Elephant Fence constructed at a cost of Rs. 4.3 million covering several villages in the Mahakumbukkadawala area in the Puttalam District yesterday (04) which was officiated by Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, Archbishop of Colombo.
