The deplorable conduct of some Pradeshiya Sabha members and chairmen tarnished the image of the country, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said yesterday.
He said politicians should set an example to the people who voted them into office.
The Cardinal expressed these views when he was asked what he thought of the deteriorating law and order situation in the country and the situation at Deraniyagala, where an estate superintendent was killed by politically connected goons.
The Cardinal said politicians had to behave with proper decorum without bringing the country into disrepute.
