“I severely criticized the President…but not a single call….now Democracy is overflowing” Reverend Dambara Amila.
“During the last months I severely criticized President Maithripala Sirisena. But I did not receive any threatening calls, neither from Polonnaruwa nor presidential house. Not even from the Temple trees. At least not even from a Pradeshiya sabha member. If I spoke like this during the last regime for sure I will be kidnapped in a white van. Now Democracy is overflowing…Rev Dambara Amila stated.
He made this statement at the first seminar held in Matara Nupe on 30 June in the “Are we saying good bye to Democracy? (prajathanthawadayata samu demuda) series organized by the Platform for Freedom.
