Asgiriya prelate seeks CBK-Ranil consensus
The Asgiriya Sanga Sabhawa is to write to President Chandrika Kumaratunga and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe advising them to shed political differences in handling the current peace process.

The Asgriya Mahanayake, Ven Udugama Buddahrakkitha Thera, told a group of senior citizens and Buddhist organisation representatives that they hoped to invite the President and the Prime Minister to Kandy to urge them to settle their political differences.

The representatives had called on the Mahanayake Thera to urge the President and the government to ensure that sufficient steps were taken to protect the rights of the Buddhists. They also called on the government not to offer an interim administration to the LTTE and to take steps to prevent unethical conversions.

They also wanted the Mahanayake Thera to advise the President and the Premier to refrain from accusing each other and getting involved in petty politics thereby wasting public money and time.

The Mahanayake Thera said he\ was not satisfied with the handling of the peace process in some instances.
