* Buddhist prelate displeased with Sri Lanka opposition for failing to address people's issues
Thu, Feb 14, 2013, 10:07 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 14, Colombo: Chief incumbent of the Kotte Sri Naga Viharaya, Ven. Maduluwave Sobitha Thero says the opposition has failed to fulfill its responsibilities in actively addressing the issues faced by the people in the country.

Ven. Sobitha Thero told the local media that even the public is now expressing their displeasure at the opposition's failure to protect the rights of the people.

He has observed that a government and an opposition are necessary in a democratic country to maintain checks and balances.

"The government needs to tread on the correct path, and if there is any failure, the opposition should be able to force the government to get back on track," Ven. Sobitha Thero explained.

He noted that the inaction of current opposition has resulted in the rise of corruption in the government.

"There is no one to protest against the government and people too would not come forward for any activity when the opposition is weak," the Thero observed.

According to Ven. Sobitha Thero, the country and people are therefore faced with a sad situation.
