Former Chief Minister Wigneswaran has said that Ranil announced earlier that 5,000 Million had been allocated for installing Buddhist symbols in the North and 3,000 million to Tamil Leaders to keep mum about it.
Last Presidential Election has made one thing very clear. The country is polarized on basis of doctrines.
Ideas of Sinhala People is different from those of Tamil People, it had shown. The new President came forward to prioritize Buddhism and the Sinhala People had overwhelmingly voted for him. On the strength of their votes , Buddhist temples, Vihares and symbols will prop up soon.
Several people advise us to tow the Government line. They are not aware that they will buy us out if we do like that. The Buddhist symbols and vihares are appearing speedily in the North and East. The so called Tamil Leaders cannot find their voice to protest against it.
