Chief Minister of the Uva Province Harin Fernando says that the peace and harmony of the country is at risk due to the actions of certain politicians. He further stated that he saw a former leader carrying out ‘politics from a temple’.  He said that since that day no UNPer enters the premises of that temple and no alms are given to the temple.

He said:

But now look at the what the UNP  is doing as well. For instance imagine if Ranil Wickremesinghe also goes to a different temple in the same area and makes donations. See what a naive and unfair thing that would be to do.

He further added that the country’s politics should be run not from inside a temple, church or school.

I am disappointed that through such activities issues of racism arise, he pointed out.

Chief Minister Harin Fernando made this statement at an event organised to lay the foundation stone of a three-storey building in the Al Adan Muslim School in Badulla. The Chief Minister also took part in an awards ceremony.
