Why is Gotabaya sacrificing his presidency for PB Jayasundara?

Several respected Buddhist Clergymen have come out with ferocity against the government for economic mismanagement and for poor pandemic management. Moreover the fear of selling of strategic assets. Selling or leasing of national assets was some thing that Gotabaya promised not to do, but now his friend the 75 old  Nimal Perera is presiding over the sale of these assets.

 The Easter Sunday attacks have now shifted towards the government. All in all it has been a disaster for the government. What ever is said and done now the Government is being ridiculed. The latest being the petrol prices. The Rajapaksa family is increasingly being seen as a burden on the people. The importation of the luxury vehicles went down so badly , because 650,000 people are struggling to get their second vaccine and people are struggling from a total loss of income and from the recent floods. The biggest thorn for them has been PB Jayasundara .  

The government of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is probably the only government to be detested by the people, said Venerable Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero, the Chief Incumbent of the Abhayarama Temple said on Tuesday. 

“If an officer is working under the assumption that he is king, that officer cannot be blamed because it is the fault of the rulers,” said the Venerable Thero. “We find henchmen around any person, and the main henchman around President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is P. B. Jayasundara. It is P. B. Jayasundra who put the president into this present situation,” said the Venerable Thero.Venerable Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero called for P. B. Jayasundara to be removed and replaced. “If P. B. Jayasundara is not replaced, we will have to resort to very strong protests in the future,” said the Venerable Thero.

Several SLPP sources said that PB Jayasundare and SR Attygalle together have ruined the government. If no change is made immediately the entire government will get buried by their actions. Why the President is keeping a man the Supreme Court said is not fit to hold  public office is a mystery to many people. Especially when he is destroying the government according to the respected Ananda Thero.
