President should be like Hitler: Dilum Amunugama
The people are not satisfied with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa due to his lax governing policy, and he should be more like Hitler, State Minister of Transport, Dilum Amunugama says.
He said this at a press conference held yesterday (12).
"The people are accusing the Government because they had expectations for Gotabaya Rajapaksa to run a dictatorial regime as soon as he became President.
"Even the revered Maha Sangha asserted that the President being like Hitler would be an excellent move. But now him not conducting a dictatorial regime had become the reasons for these allegations. I accept that too.
"The 6.9 million people voted for him because they needed a strong leader like Hitler. I don't think he would like to become such a leader in the near future. that has become a problem.
"He would become a 'Hitler' if he is pushed to do so. If all sectors of the country and the Government are functioning well, he has no need to become such a dictator." Minister Amunugama said.
Meanwhile, the Ambassador of Germany to Sri Lanka, Ambassador Holger Seubert has responded to the statement by emphasising that Adolf Hitler, who was responsible for human suffering and despair beyond imagination, that caused millions of deaths is not a role model for any politician.
