Public Relations and Public Affairs Minister Mervyn Silva has said he has trained a team of suicide bombers to protect the country and its President.
Silva has said that he has trained a group of 19 members including himself, who are ready to lay down their lives to protect the country.
The Minister had made this comment after signing a petition against the Darusman Report in Anuradhapura. The government a few weeks earlier launched a petition against the Darusman Report to collect signatures from all parts of the island.
According to Silva, President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa and the Defence Secretary are the engineers of Sri Lanka’s rapid development and he was therefore ready to sacrifice his life to protect them.
