The first session of the committee established by the “National Monks Scholars Group” for finding the solutions to the current crisis, held at Papiliyan Sunethra Devi Pirivena on 04 th of June.
As a first step to collect the peoples ideas to put in to the “Ten Commands” which was formed by the National Monks Scholars Group” to hand over to the next presidential candidates, they collected the ideas from business community.
Ven.Medagoda Abayathissa Thero had earlier told that they support for the candidates only if they agree with the National Monks Scholars Groups proposals. And also, the thero further added that the one of the motives of bringing these Ten Commands is, to make huge political overturn throughout the country, like happened in 1956.
But, to decide to select the leadership that most suitable for the country, is a common peoples task, not the Monks task. Even though the Monks interventions for the politics is potentially not preventable, their involvements for the politics for the last several decades brought obviously more damages to the idea of reconciliation in Sri Lankan society
