Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne has said that the usage of narcotics is destroying the people and country.

He said that the responsibility of rescuing the youths from this habit lies with the entire nation. The Prime Minister expressed this view at a function held to offer new facilities built at the historic Dakshina Raja Maha Vihare to the Maha Sangha. The temple has been built during the rule of King Walagamba. The foundation stone for a colossal Buddha statue to be constructed at the ancient temple was laid under the patronage of the Prime Minister and Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa. The temple bell pavilion and the new parapet wall were also inaugurated.
