The Protect Sri Lanka Organisation claims the government has aided and abetted manslaughter by delaying the vaccination drive.
President of the Association Ven. Pahiyangala Anandasagara Thera said had the government fulfilled its duties, half of the population would have been fully vaccinated at present.
Speaking to media in Kalutara, Anandasagara Thera said due to the delay in vaccinating people, the number of COVID-19 deaths are increasing at present.
The Thera therefore said the government must take full responsibility for the deaths.
