May peace prevail in SL – Dinesh


Minister of Public Administration, Home Affairs and Local Government and Provincial Councils Dinesh Gunawardena said the aim of all Sri Lankans should be to usher in a Sri Lanka devoid of violence and terrorism on a significant day such as Poson Full Moon Day.

He was speaking after taking part in an event held at the Paramananda Viharaya in Kotahena to distribute Buddhist flags to all temples in the Colombo Development Committee area.

He added that cultivation of noble thoughts and deeds should be the lofty aim of all Sri Lankans devoid of caste, creed, nationality, or ethnicity on a day which marks the advent of Buddhism in the country.

The distribution of Buddhist flags had been undertaken with the personal funds of the Head of the Colombo Development Committee Yadamini Gunawardena.
