JHU calls for the arrest of PM
Prime Minister D. M Jayarathne should immediately resign or he should be arrested immediately if he fails to divulge the name of the official who had asked for the clearance of a container which had 131 Kg of heroin, the Jathika Hela Urumaya said.
Leader of the JHU Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thera yesterday said that the Prime Minister was duty bound to reveal the names of the officials who were involved in urging the release of the container.
“The Buddashasana Ministry is the centre for the destroying of Buddhism in the country. The Prime Minister should be arrested if he fails to provide details of these criminals working under him, he should not protect these people,” the monk told a gathering yesterday.

JHU or not, PM should be questioned and punished. If he has self-respect (I am sure he doesn’t have)he should resign.
This is my opinion, some time could be wrong, if you take 225 MP’s in parliament, I like only ANURA KUMARA DISANAYAKE OF JVP. When he talks in Parliament or even on TV program debates very specific, he is well aware of what he talks, communicating or expressing to the people. Personally I did not vote for him, therefore, I will take this opportunity to thank the people who votes to elect him in last election.
Well, I think it is an unreasonable request.
There’s tonnes of heroin being smuggled into the country; the quantity concerned in this report is miniscule compared to the total.
Hon Jayaratne is an important person in the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration. His adinistration (the petty officials in his ministry) is alleged to have faltered when the Ministry requested clearence for a miniscule amount of prohibited items.
This act does not diminish Mr Jayaratne. He is an icon. He should and must continue to serve the Sinhala Buddhists of the Sinhala Buddhist nation of Sri Lanka many more years to come.
Mr Jayaratne is a pillar of the Rajapaksa administration. This is an inspired attack against his integrity and I am sure he will not only survive this attack but emerge victorious and stronger than ever.
Politicians and religious leaders are misusing & misguiding the poor people in the nation, we are way behind due to dirty politics.
Dear Chandini Pera,
I am a Buddhist too. I do read between lines. However,thank you so much for giving us a lesson on Sinhala Buddhist values. Really appreciated.
