Minister of Construction, Engineering Services, Housing & Common Amenities Wimal Weerawansa says the country’s leadership will not be given to leaders who do not respect the National Anthem.

The minister made this statement at a ceremony held to present homes to low income families in the Colombo District.

[quote]When the national anthem was sung at the recently concluded UNP convention, the leaders of the party were fast asleep. Some were sleeping while standing. Not only that, Ranil Wickremesinghe delivered his speech after stopping the anthem half way. That is the respect he has for the country. While the anthem was going on he was seen folding the sleeves of his shirt. We were taught in school to stand to attention when the national anthem is played. Our opposition leader was seen folding his sleeves while standing at attention.[/quote]
