Range Bandara Says Sri Lanka Needs A Leader Like Lee Kuan Yew: Also Suggests Death Penalty For Organized Crimes

State Minister Palitha Range Bandara said Sri Lanka needed a ruler like former Singapore leader Lee Kuan Yew who could make firm decisions. 

"We don't need someone like Hitler, Mussolini or Prabhakaran," the State Minister said, speaking at a public event in Puttalam. 

"Sr Lanka needs a head  of state who can make firm decisions for the betterment of the country," he added. 

Range Bandara also praised President Maithripala Sirisena's statement to sanction death penalty for those running 'drug networks' from prison cells. 

"It's an excellent decision. I also suggest that death penalty should be given for those committing organised crimes using illegal arms," he said. 

"Such criminals." he added, "disrupt the peaceful civilian life."
