Most Ven. Napane Pemasiri Thero, the Mahanayake of the Sri Lanka Ramanna Maha Nikaya, says that he was not aware of the press conference held yesterday (12) with the participations of the Chief Secretary Thero of the Ramanna Maha NIkaya.

The Sri Lanka Amarapura – Ramanna Samagari Maha Sangha Sabha, holding a press conference, said yesterday that immediate action should be taken to deactivate the 20th Amendment to the Constitution which is against democracy.

However, the Chief Prelate of the Ramanna Nikaya told the media today (13):

I do not travel much because of physical exertion. So I do not know what happened yesterday. If there was a meeting of the Nikaya, I should have been informed.

The secretaries must know that it is not appropriate to issue statements without the knowledge of the Mahanayake Thera. Others should also know. There is no one to claim responsibility of statements made without our knowledge.”

The Mahanayake Thero has further stated that according to the discourse of the Sri Lanka Ramanna Maha Nikaya, the Maha Sangha of the sect has been told not to get involved in politics.

Accordingly, commenting on matters related to politics should not have happened, the Thero said.
