United National Party Parliamentarian Dr. Harsha de Silva participated an event held in the Dehiwala area on Friday.

UNP Parliamentarian, Dr. Harsha de Silva said; “Lord Buddha has preached how a person will meet his end through gambling. As a religious society if they are trying to develop this nation by building casinos, I believe there is a big conspiracy here. I believe that there are many other ways in which this country could be developed. So as a Buddhist I  would like to say that bringing in casinos and gambling to this country  as a mode of development, is completely wrong.”
