The Asgiriya Mahanayake, the Most Ven. Udugama Sri Buddharakkitha thera laid this emphasis when Deputy Minister S.M. Chandrasena visited the Asgiriya Maha Vihare to secure the Prelate’s blessings.
The Prelate said that when the term of office of a President ends in two terms, the programmes they launch come to a halt. As such, if the leader is capable of working for the country, he should be permitted to continue the programmes. If not, if a new leader is appointed, all these programmes will come to a halt as he would embark on new programmes.
