One of the foremost monks who worked to bring the present government to power Attaragama Pannaloka Thero – ‘Kotuwe Podi Hamuduruwo’ says that the incident of assaulting a group of students at the Ragama Medical Faculty being attacked by thugs is not a big deal and he will not allow the Minister of State Arundika Fernando to end his political career due to this incident.
“They will sling mud at me for this and say I took money, I don’t care. Put Minister Arundika aside, if someone calls me in the middle of the night saying that someone’s beaten them and asks me to come to save them, I will go. That is the feeling – that is humanity. So let’s be quiet and hand over the case to the law. We will never allow Minister Arundika’s politics to end through this incident. He is a powerful figure who speaks on behalf of the government. Therefore, we kindly say that we are here to protect him. ”
‘Kotuwe Podi Hamuduruwo’ said this while expressing his views to the media yesterday (05).
