It is a well known fact that several NGOs have exceeded their remits even to the extent of procuring weapons for terrorists, Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratna said in Parliament yesterday.

However, he said, the government was not intending to control Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) but merely reminding them to act in accordance with the mandates they are pledged to.

He made these observations in Parliament yesterday in response to a special statement made by Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe under Standing Orders querying if the letter dated July 01, 2014 issued by the National Secretariat to NGOs, was to control the NGOs.

The Prime Minister said the letter issued was not an order but a letter of instruction to request NGOs to act within the agreed boundaries and not to engage in any other action outside the original mandates.

Prime Minister Jayaratne also said that these type of reminders go out in other countries as well.

    Though it may impact Buddhist organizations it will finally have a greater impact on Islamic, Christian and Tamil organizations who are working for themselves and their goals and not for the best interest of Sri Lanka.
