In two more years it would be seventy years since independence and when looking back at the past 68 years it is evident that rulers who administered the country have destroyed it says Gypsies’ singer Sunil Perera.
He has no confidence in the the main parties that ruled the country and even after 68 years of independence the youth have to go abroad as refugees and the country has become a place that is not suitable for the youths to live states Mr. Perera.
Those who have come to politics as ordinary folk and have built mansions have definitely stolen public money, politicians continue to steal public property and this could be stopped only by giving the administrative power of eh country to the JVP said Gypsies’ leader.
Mr. Sunil Perera made these observations participating in the ‘Mathakada’ programme broadcast by ‘Ran FM’ radio.
He said some spend Rs.90 million to build Buddha statues expecting merit but there are many schools in the country where students have to study without desks and chairs and toilets either. He said this is a country where presidents open Buddha statues built spending Rs.90 million but such practices would not bring merit to them and if they really expect merit they should look after the poor children in poor schools.
Catholic religion teaches to ‘love thy neighbour’ but he is not allowed to attend mass as he is married to a Buddhist lady added Mr. Sunil Perera.
