Ven. Hadigalle Wimalasara Thera said that an ongoing fast unto death campaign organised by a group of Buddhist monks opposite the Bodhi Tree at Pettah in Colombo will not end till the incumbent President is removed from office.

He stated that to date no responsible Government official had arrived at the death fast protest to inquire about the demands of the Buddhist Clergy there.

The Thera added that the death fast, which commenced on 7 July, will go on until the President steps down from office.

The Thera further stated that after the resignation of the current President, the political parties representing Parliament should strive to form an All-Party Government to resolve the burning issues faced by the masses.
