“Political Cross overs are shameful” – Malwatte Mahanayake
Mahanayake of the Malwatte Chapter Ven Thibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera yesterday said that some politicians jump from one party to another party purely because they hunger for power and without thinking of the country. “What we see and hear these days are politicians jumping from one side to another. Some do so without thinking about the policies of the party but only about themselves. But if it is done after thinking about the country, it is better,” the Prelate said. The Venerable Thera made this observation when Leader of the Opposition of the Southern Provincial Council Buddhika Pathirana called on him.
