The Chief Prelate of the Malwatte Chapter Ven. Thibbatuwawe Sri Sumangala Thero has said Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake was an indisciplined man.
The chief prelate had made this comment during a meeting with a group of representatives from the Inter University Buddhist Federation (IUBF).
The IUBF issuing a statement today has said that Ven. Sri Sumangala Thero had said the government had not even adhered to the advice of the chief prelates.
The Thero had said the situation had got worse with regard to the university students as a result.
The IUBF representatives met with Ven. Sri Sumangala Thero to discuss about the government’s move to introduce a mandatory leadership training programme for university students and the harassment of university students including student monks.
The chief prelate has expressed his disappointment at the comments made by the Higher Education Minister with regard to the death of a student monk recently.
