Don't insult the PM - Hakeem tells Sudarshini (Video)

Leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress - Rauff Hakeem today (11) urged State Minister of Primary Health Care, Epidemics and COVID Disease Control - Sudarshini Fernandopulle not to 'insult the Prime Minister'.

His comments came after the state minister today said that the decision to allow burial of remains of Covid-19 victims in Sri Lanka will be made by the ‘expert committee’ of the Health Ministry.

Noting that the Prime minister - Mahinda Rajapaksa made a categorical statement in parliament yesterday that burials would be allowed, MP Hakeem questioned as to who are experts in the Health ministry blocking this decision, causing racial tensions in Sri Lanka.

'So therefore, please take a very mature and considered decision, and don't insult the Prime minister for God's sake,' he concluded.
