Dilum's Controversial "Hitler" Remarks Backfires On Govt.: German Ambassador Says Hitler Is No Role Model For Politicians

German Ambassador in Sri Lanka Holger Seubert responded to the remarks made by State Minister Dilum Amunugama that President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa must act like Adolf Hitler.

Amunugama said 6.9 million voted for the President to act like a dictator and his failure to do so has eroded the popularity of the government.

The statement drew severe criticism from many circles and among them was the German Ambassador tp Sri Lanka.

"I‘m hearing claims that “a Hitler“ could be beneficial to Sri Lanka today. Let me remind those voices that Adolf Hitler was responsible for human suffering and despair beyond imagination, with millions of deaths," the Ambassador said.

"Hitler is definitely no role model for any politician!," he also added.
