Changing East to Buddhism? – Four more monks appointed

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa had appointed the Presidential Task Force in June by exercising the powers vested in him by Article 33 of the Constitution.

In a new gazette notice, the President notes that since many of the Archaeological Heritages in the Eastern Province are based on the Buddhist religious background and associated with those places of worship, it has been recognized that the guidance and patronage of the Venerable Maha Sangha is still needed in the identification and management of those heritages.

As a result, the President said that he has appointed the monks as members of the Presidential Task Force for Archaeological Heritage Management in the Eastern Province, established in terms of a Presidential Directive, reposing great trust and confidence in their prudence, ability and fidelity.
