Anu Nayake delivered the sermon to me - Gotabhaya Featured

Former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa says it is wholly inappropriate for the president, prime minister and other politicians to target Anu Nayake of Asgiriya Chapter Wendaruwe Upali Thera for having given him private advice at an alms giving at his home.

As Lord Buddha preached, a sermon should be delivered to persons with the ability to comprehend it, he told the media after giving a statement to the FCID yesterday (25).

Gotabhaya said he fully understood the advice given him by the prelate, but others who did not were making various comments.

In the sermon, Upali Thera advised the ex-defence secretary to rule the country like a Hitler if he was elected president.
