Sri Lanka Constitution: Questions for people to ponder
Posted on December 7th, 2016

Shenali D Waduge

The People of Sri Lanka did not ask for a new constitution so to whose desire or benefit are we making a new constitution? A Constitution cannot be an experiment especially by political appointees who have overlooked historical facts and ground realities and political influences that require a strong national constitution to protect the entire island. We cannot have a situation where an unwanted baby is delivered to be told operation successful patient died. The repercussions and dangers are far too great to be indulging in experiments leaving a volatile climate of chaos in particular when the present government is now even internationally known as unable to govern the country.

Sri Lanka is a small island nation. Its population is just 20million. Sri Lanka cannot be compared to US, India, Canada or even Australia. The governance structures adopted in these countries are to suit the size of their countries. There is no logical reason to duplicate their systems of governance. External players or parties cannot influence Sri Lanka and shove down Sri Lanka’s throat what they deem is suitable for us and Sri Lankan public must not allow their representatives the politicians to be influenced into agreeing by various handouts, promises and carrots offered. Recently the EU offered President Assad money if he agreed to allow terrorists to rule over parts of Syria. This was a shocking case of unashamed bribery. http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-bribe-of-the-century-eu-will-give-assad-money-if-he-allows-al-qaeda-to-rule-over-parts-of-syria/5560590 We know how far USAID and other international INGOs played in drafting Nepal’s new constitution to introduce secularism against the wishes of the people and the threatening role by India via economic blockades for Nepal’s refusal to incorporate what India desired are all lessons Sri Lanka cannot over look. http://nepalforeignaffairs.com/how-india-influenced-nepals-constitution-lessons-for-sri-lanka/

Secular tab is another western slogan flogged to take away, denigrate and dilute countries that have historical past and are trying their best to protect that past. The very countries preaching secularism take oaths holding the Bible and sing national anthem ‘God Save the Queen’ while their politicians make no bones about protecting Christianity. A religion has been made a state and is the only religion that has status in the UN. None of the Muslim-majority countries will budge from the supreme place given to Islam and Quran. Sri Lanka has every right to afford the foremost place to Buddhism that has prevailed for over 2600 years.

The countries urging Sri Lanka to draft a new constitution are countries that are larger in size and population, their histories are a few hundred years, their nations built as invading occupiers and immigrants and cannot be compared to the rich civilizational heritage and history lasting over 2600 years which Sri Lanka holds – no constitution can demand that the place of those who built the nation and the guiding principles on which it was built be removed and replaced with something foreign. Sri Lanka’s culture & Buddhist philosophy, history and artefacts cannot be allowed to become a piece in the museum.

The proposals made by the committee appointed by the PM has made shocking proposals unbelievable that they would even suggest to design a new national flag, remove the place historically afforded to Buddhism –http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2016/06/04/betrayal-of-the-sinhala-buddhists-1815-betrayal-being-re-enacted-by-new-constitutional-reforms/

A piece of paper called the constitution which is not read by ordinary people and perhaps not even read by the majority of people in Sri Lanka cannot have legal clauses just to please a handful of people. A big noise was made about singing the national anthem in Tamil – it was allowed flouting the current constitution claiming it would usher in unity … what is the unity heralded? Just look at the speeches and statements made by Chief Minister Wigneswaran and the TNA as well as other separatists. It is very clear that no paper can change the mentality in the minds of people and no minds can be changed because of changing clauses.

Imposed structures have failed – 13a and provincial council system brought in through the Indo-Lanka Accord of 1987 has been a miserable failure and a burden on the tax payers.

Moreover no new constitution should be introduced without checks and balances – if the centre is delegating some of its powers the centre should have the right to take back these powers if the provinces are not functioning to its expectations. An excellent example was in 1990 when the merged NE Provincial Council Chief Minister Varatharaja Perumal declared unilateral declaration of independence which led to the province been dissolved and powers returning to the centre. Such provisions must prevail in particular when the 2 provinces demanding separatism are run by parties that have been openly propagating mono-ethnic self rule. As a small island nation all strategic, national, fiscal, international, monetary affairs must be held by the Centre. These items have no direct relevance or requirement for people of these provinces and these subjects should not be delegated to the provinces to independently handle on their own. If the political leaders of these provinces claim they wish to improve the welfare of the people – it is only affairs that are directly relevantly to the people that should be delegated by the center and nothing else.

The confederal system that Tamil leaders closely associated with separatism of Sri Lanka are advocating was initially adopted by the Founding Fathers of America (where sovereign powers were given to the States) the weaknesses and dangers of such a system made American leaders to replace Articles of Confederacy with a federal model in 1789. http://ushistoryscene.com/article/articles-of-confederation/ The troubles US faced under confederal system draws important lessons for Sri Lanka in the context of the same demands being made by TNA and constituent party ITAK whose constitution has as its aims and objectives the confederal model (a supreme court case continues to challenge ITAK on these aims and objectives)

No change in the structure of governance can come about when there are minority leaders and a handful of majority leaders who for political gain are fanning separatist tendencies. Until clauses are brought in legally to ensure no type of separatism is allowed the new constitution should not do any experiments in devolution or decentralization.

Any form of delegating powers to the existing provinces must be based on what is of practical need to the people of the provinces and not what the politicians of these provinces aspire. In other words a person should not have to travel to Colombo to pick up his passport or NIC, or obtain a copy of his birth certificate, education certificates, marriage certificate, death certificate etc. We are living in the age of information technology. Easily the provinces can be tasked to issue these certificates to the people (which is already happening) thus reducing the burden of travel and expense to the people. Similarly, it is important to see what else has been overlooked and cater to these – these are all administrative procedures which does not require a new constitution except the will to do so. Yet, how far has the practical needs of the people been put on the table for discussion instead of the political desires of the politicians? Yet all those pushing for changes have never really asked how far have the politicians demanded what is beneficial for the people when in reality the demands are only to grasp political power for themselves.

Let us not forget that the LTTE had its own courts, its own police, its own naval and air operations, its own administrative service, its own judiciary & judges, its own educational systems. TNA’s links to LTTE has never been investigated despite appeals and it is the same TNA leaders now using their political leverage to gain what the terror arm couldn’t noted in the specific demands for land, police other segments which were all part of the ISGA & PTOM proposals.

Therefore, any Committee making proposals cannot be ignorant of the dynamics of the ground situation and that makes them duty bound to ensure that their proposals cover these sensitive areas. Therefore the question is what is the rationale is dividing police into national and provincial police knowing that LTTE-TNA were having its own police using Tamils. The proposals are so shocking that it is like Prabakaran sending a set of proposals from his grave! The proposals are just what he had been fighting tooth and nail for. The call for the merger of North and East is an excellent example to showcase the identical nature of what the LTTE – LTTE Diaspora – TNA and external forces supporting them are demanding through their stooges now seated drafting the proposals.

What needs to also be never looked is the treatment that the World has afforded to only Tamils totally disregarding that Sinhalese and Muslims suffered more under LTTE terror for throughout 30 years it was the LTTE targeting them. However, all funds, aid and regular foreign visits have been only to the North – even the UNHRC head and the UNSG visited only Tamil victims some of whom were LTTE families. All of the funds given by foreign governments in particular India have been with the insistence that they are channelled only for the North. This has to be juxtaposed against some foreign parliamentarians with links to LTTE diaspora using their political status to call for a separate Tamil state and some of these have even spoken on top of LTTE stages overseas and attended their events too. These aspects cannot be overlooked as TNA representatives have also been present at these events.

What cannot be forgotten also is the Singapore Principles wherein the assurances made are identical to the proposals being made paving the way for a separate state. We are playing with fire if we ignore these aspects and not link them to the ground situation. Those making proposals cannot completely ignore ground realities and put the country in deep and dire trouble and expect another lot of army personnel to sacrifice their lives to save the nation again while the proposers will nicely abandon ship and say ‘sorry the experiment didn’t work’.

Given that Sri Lanka is a small island nation any decision that representatives elected to only serve a term in office cannot be allowed to decide for the entire country without seeking the mandate and approval of the people. This is extremely important given that the present government comprises MPs who have been rejected by the people by vote and who have been brought into Parliament through the back door without any basis or any approval by the people. Such MPs have even been given strategic cabinet level portfolios which no other country in the world would do. It is a surprise that none of the countries preaching rights, good governance and rule of law are making statements against the large numbers of MPs who are in Parliament inspite of people rejecting them. Therefore, this government has no moral right to be passing any legislative changes through the Parliament using these MPs.

Another factor neglected is the fact that the Sinhalese are been incrementally chased out from both the North and Eastern provinces and ancient Buddhist structures, temples and other artefacts are being destroyed or even bulldozed. The government is stoic silent on these factors even ignoring the racism of the Northern Province Chief Minister who has been repeatedly demanding the Sinhalese be removed from the North thus indirectly encouraging Tamils to be antagonistic towards the Sinhalese living in the North while at the same time Tamils are growing in numbers in the South and are buying land, residing, schooling, working and even running businesses. The majority of a country that numbers 74% should not be treated in this manner by politicians of all colours. While endless times challenges have been thrown at those claiming the majority are discriminating against the minority to produce examples of what legally, constitutionally and legislatively the minorities are denied which is given to only the majority – not a single example has been produced to date. What needs to be reiterated is that majority rule cannot be replaced with minority rule in particular by minorities who are racist and separatist. Moreover what needs to be said is that fundamental rights are for individuals and not for communities – therefore Tamils as a community or Muslims as a community cannot demand fundamental rights applicable to all. Only individuals can claim based on whatever discriminations they have personally suffered. There are enough of scenarios where all communities have suffered just like communities all round the world

No government should agree to make changes which have no relevance to the needs of the people and everything to do with the political agendas of political parties and external forces. This is a key reason for the patriotic forces in Sri Lanka to object to the new constitution as the changes being proposed are a fraud on the voters and a deceptive means to politically divide Sri Lanka in exchange for the support given to bring the present government to power.

No constitution can or should be made inspired upon revenge or to take revenge or based on promises to dilute the sovereignty and powers of a strong nation. From the appointees, to the proposals they are making and the secretive manner in which changes are being pushed and peddled these are growing signs of concerns. Moreover, the globalist plan is now shifting – the status quo of US and Europe has changed or is changing drastically. Additionally, the country is itself bankrupt and at a virtual standstill. In such a docile climate we should not allow any Parliamentarian to introduce elements we know are further diluting the powers to take control in the eventuality of a crisis.

The Prime Minister has made a public apology on behalf of the UNP for burning the Jaffna library – many believe that this event spurred angry resulting in youth joining armed militants which ended up in terror and took 30 years to defeat. The same leader and party are morally culpable for not unleashing another catastrophe especially when he will recall how his other infamous agreement in 2002 placed terrorists on par with the national army. In the light of these realities, the constitution making should be shelved until Sri Lanka is on a stronger financial, economic and social footing.

    YES, we agree with Shenali !
    Sri Lanka does NOT need a new Constitution.
    Whose idea is this anyway ??? !!

    Just remove the ILLEGAL 13-A, and let the Constitution stand as is, and make changes as and when needed by the People of Lanka, not outside sources.
    The 13-A is ILLEGAL as it was imposed under Duress on the JRJ govt in 1987.

    What about the Vadukoddai Resolution of 1976 (Eelam through Violence) which led Tamil youth to terrorism – this Resolution is still not officially revoked by the Tamil leaders of Lanka.
    Note that the V’koddai Resolution (1976) came BEFORE the trumped up 1983 Riots.

  5. Fran Diaz Says:

    The Gonsal versions of events are designed to remove local heroes and MR from politics !

    Facts are clear to the Sinhale.
    The 13-A has to be removed NOW, after the war with the LTTE finished.
    MR the intelligent leader, got his priorities right – first remove the LTTE, next attend to other priorities such as the Economy.
    Having the PCs in the SLFP helped the war effort plus building the Economy.
    He is a National Leader, not only for the Sinhale, but for all of Lanka.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    Fran,

    Your statements do not make sense, again.

    1. “Having the PCs in the SLFP helped the war effort plus building the Economy.”

    How can it HELP build the economy when they COST poor taxpayers BILLIONS for NOTHING in return. Even MR’s OWN secretary LALITH said PCs are a WHITE ELEPHANT!

    MR got his priorities WRONG. That was why he was kicked out by the people. MOST Sira voters were SINGHALESE.

    2. Then another WRONG.

    “He is a National Leader, not only for the Sinhale, but for all of Lanka.”

    Sinhale = SL.

    You try to show Sinhale is ONE COUNTRY and SL is another country.

  7. S.Gonsal Says:

    No One Should Rejoice At Jayalalithaa’s Death, Says MR

    No One Should Rejoice At Jayalalithaa's Death, Says MR

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday that no one should rejoice at the death of a leader and that he would like to offer his condolences over the death of former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa Jeyaram.

    He made this observation when he was asked about the death of Jayalalithaa, who was once an opponent of the Sri Lankan government, during the last stages of the war.

    Jayalalithaa was then in the opposition in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, when the DMK – Congress alliance ruled the state. The Congress Party led UPA was in power at the Centre.

    Rajapaksa recalled that Jayalalithaa was a popular figure in South India.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    At the next election SINGHALESE should NOT vote for ANY party that FAILS to promise to SCRAP 13 amendment. IF NO party promises scrapping 13 amendment, people should BOYCOTT the election.

    Otherwise this becomes a joke. Politicians take Singhala modayas for GRANTED.

    MR promised LLRC. That is WORSE than 13 amendment.

    We are organizing a NEW PARTY of REAL WAR HEROES to rival ALL liars – UNP, SLFP, JVP and JO.

    We have a TRUMP CARD against all of them. IF we are NOT getting enough support for the SCRAP 13 amendment promise, we will promise to RAISE SOLDIER (active and retired) salary by 10,000 rupees a month. There are 700,000 of them (mostly retired). With their WIVES and PARENTS, we are talking about 2 million SINGHALA voters.

    SCRAP ETCA is another TRUMP CARD.

    HANG the corrupt is another TRUMP CARD.

    NO 2 MPs or MP and PC member combination from a single family.

    We will run an aggressive SOCIAL MEDIA and RADIO media campaign.

    Our KEY FOCUS areas are the SOUTHERN PROVINCE and the WESTERN PROVINCE initially.

    This party will become the THIRD FORCE. We will selectively support UNP or SLFP to form a govt. IF they agree to our KEY demands. I HATE to divide the SLFP but if it does NOT serve the people and 1956 objectives then there is no other option.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    “No One Should Rejoice At Jayalalithaa’s Death, Says MR.”

    “Viggie is not a racist.”

    Very easy to fool Singhala modayas. Ultimately Singhala modayas have NO enemies because enemies are PAINTED as TRUSTWORTHY friends!!

  10. S.Gonsal Says:

    Fran,
    I did not DESIGN any event. It all happened !

    1. JR imposed 13A on “Indian intervention” and we could not defeat LTTE militarily.

    2. We defeated LTTE militarily but MR DID NOT REMOVE 13A on “Indian intervention.”

    My only addition is “Indian Intervention”. You, a person colouer by politics, simply want to use “Indian Intervention” on JR but not on MR.

    Why ? because “We defeated LTTE militarily” under MR. You don’t acknoledge we almost defeated LTTE militarily under JR too.

    If we can defeat LTTE militarily ( after so many lives sacrificed), MR couldn’t do the “minor” thing with his 2/3 majority. Instead he used it to strengthen him FAMILY Empire. This is obvious and BULNT TRUTH.

  11. SA Kumar Says:

    Note that the V’koddai Resolution (1976) came BEFORE the trumped up 1983 Riots but between 1956 to 1983 Demila Baila vesak !!!

  12. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    WE ARE ALL TENSE, BECAUSE MR WAS VACILLATING WITH INDECISION. HE COULD HAVE SCRAPPED THE 13TH, BUT HAD HIS OWN FEARS. ALL THE PEOPLE APPEALED TO HIM TO KICK 13TH OUT. HE DID NOT DO IT. RESULT ? COUNTRY IS SUFFERING. HIS 2/3RD MAJORITY WAS A WASTE, UTTER WASTE.

    MR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR TODAYS PREDICAMENT OF THE COUNTRY.

  13. SA Kumar Says:

    Susantha Wijesinghe 13A is untouchable Indian baby( Indo-Lanka accord) , thats why MR promised 13 Plus to BS India .

    MR plan was set by set to scrapped 13 A
    eg: NEPC to divided in to two NP & EPC
    but Indian got up quickly

  14. S.Gonsal Says:

    This guy need to be punished properly by people, not praised. People already paid gratitude more than enough, he betrayed all.
    Now, after seeing some crowd the Kapatiya thinks he can fool people again. He is the biggest hiderence to resist this LTTE governemtn under a properly UNITED SINHALA FRONT.

    MR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR TODAYS PREDICAMENT OF THE COUNTRY..

    If we are to accept him back HE SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the failure. Not the nonsence he bring to us now by visiting countries ( to collect his treasures ? I suspect), issuing BANA statements ect. Please accept the betrayal for us to accept you !

  15. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo/Gonsal,

    There you go nit picking again.

    I am interested in the end results of events.
    MR succeeded. End of story.

    Forget the rest.
    I close my case.
    It’s a waste of time to quibble over words, when it is the results that matter, won with great efforts.

  16. Cerberus Says:

    Thank you Shenali once again for bringing the facts to the people. Agree completely with you and some of the other writers that Sri Lanka does NOT need a new constitution. This is being imposed on us by India and USA to satisfy the Tamil demand for a Federal state. Tamils have not done anything to develop the country from the time of Independence. They only hate the Sinhalese even though they have got more than the Tamils in Tamil Nadu from the Sinhalese. No amount of appeasement will satisfy them until they can create a Dravidasthan in Sri Lanka for the Tamils everywhere. This time they managed to get a trio of traitors elected by spreading lies about President Mahinda Rajapaksa. This proves that Democracy does not work in Sri Lanka since our people can be swayed easily by lies. The MPs who get elected can be easily swayed by giving them money and cars and other perks. Most of them are uneducated louts who get into politics to make money.

    The fact that Democracy does not work has been proven by the recent elections in the USA where a bunch of uneducated people elected controversial person into power. People unless they are highly educated and trained in critical thinking can be easily swayed by demagoguery like US President-Elect who appeared to appeal to the basest emotions of the people. Hitler is another example of a demagogue who was insane and destroyed Germany. India’s recently deceased Jayalalitha was popular with the uneducated masses of Tamils because she used to play the Hindu goddess Parvati. In fact, it is said that Tamil used to throw themselves under the wheels of MG Ramachandran’s car because they thought he was Shiva and by dying under his vehicle they would go straight to heaven.

    This proves what Socrates said long ago. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLJBzhcSWTk&t=54s

    In order to safeguard Democracy, we must implement regulations as follows as to who can run for office in Sri Lanka as our neighbor Singapore has done.
    1. Set minimum qualifications for anyone who runs for office. In Singapore,one has to have a Ph.D. to run for office.
    2. Ensure they have no police record or criminal background.
    3. Lay down a maximum age for those who run for office.
    4. Pass a medical test and psychological test to ensure they are of sound mind and body.
    5. Ensure they declare their assets and those of his immediate family members annually to the public.
    6. Above all have free press and a good education which trains people in critical thinking, not memorizing and reproducing facts at exams.
    7. Have debates and discussions on issues as they do now on the tv and radio. In the USA the press and TV have been hijacked by the Republican party which caters to the very rich. The recent book by Thomas Piketty talks about the growth of Capital in the hands of a very few people and what it does to the society. In Sri Lanka people who became instantly rich like Arjun Mahendran and his nephew, Arjun Aloysius has bought some media companies in preparation to take over the media in Sri Lanka.

    True democracy is never free. It is a right one has to fight for every single day.

    Yahoo! We won the 1996 world cup so ARJUNA should be the captain till death.
    (But we LOST the 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 world cups!!)

    MR WON the war in 2009 but LOST the NPC election in 2013, presidential election in 2015 and parliament election in 2015. MR also LOST the 13 amendment game, SLFP leadership and 18 amendment (SHORTEST-LIVED amendment).

    You can keep screaming about 2009 WIN but you go silent on ALL other DEFEATS since then.

    MR can WIN the next big election IF he removes NR and BR. Only UNP voters LOVE them but they can’t vote for them because they contest from a different party. NON UNP voters HATE them.

    Why can’t MR understand this?

  18. Lorenzo Says:

    That was for Fran.

    BTW Tamils and Muslims DO NOT consider MR to be their leader.

    It is the traitor foreigners tamils, mussies along with the catholics and catholic west want to dismember Mother
    Lanka. Also diasporats putting pressure through us, uk, etc. etc who lick their backsides for their votes. to get their drealam. They couldn’t do it with
    the bullet. Couldn’t do with the ballet. Now traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist Batalande Wadakaya pol
    pot r@nil wickramaSinhalakiller whose lifelong ambition is to break up Sri Lanka to please his ardent supporters
    tamils, mussies, catholics and the catholic west, ruling. So he is introducing new constitution. With it everybody get
    their drealam, mussiesthan etc. All will be happay apart from Sinhala modayas.

    350 mile long island has ministers, chief ministers, presidents, prime ministers, mayors, deputy mayors, mps, etc. etc. More deshapaluwan than citizens actually. All these nightmares shoved down the throat of Mother Lanka by
    the crafty indians and thambi mudiyanselage jr@. Alugosu (to Sinhalese only) thambi mudiyanse didn’t have a
    spine to say get lost to indians. He should’ve run to the Chinese or Russians, crafty indians would’ve backed down. But
    the traitor thambi mudiyanse put his foreign policy (UNPatriotics always side with the us, uk etc.) above the long
    term safety of Mother Lanka. What do you expect from the catholic-run UNPatriotic party any way! Alugosuwa
    had the chance to save Mother Lanka. Instead he accepted dismembering Mother Lanka by introducing 13. Traitor
    thambi knew Sinhala modayas won’t understand these simple truths and went ahead and destroyed. Surprise,
    surprise Sinhala modayas can’t get enough of the traitor party, they keep voting for the murderous, anti Sinhalese,
    anti Buddhist,anti Sri Lanka tom pacha, mega thieves!

    Batalande Wadakaya knows this
    is the best time. Puppet Maru (hora) Sira has no saying in any of these matters. He is just a mere pussy cat
    in front of the Pathala Man PM. Mother Lanka has been very unfortunate to have so many enemies among her sons and daughters who are hell
    bent on dismembering her. When the chief architect of all this is one of her own, is the saddest thing. With so many
    mas katu licking Sinhalese deshapaluwan around him he will achieve his life time ambition of dismembering
    Mother Lanka!

    MS & RW came to power on an anti-corruption ticket. Soon after coming to power what did they do?. Instead of recovering the stolen assets they themselves engaged on mega scams. And now the thieves are going to bring in con-stitution to govern the poor people of SL. Today they show another drama by Yapa Abewardena. He says parliament will debate the bond scam after the budget. Heavy taxes are in the budget because of the bond scams. What outcome can citizens expect from a debate in parliament. They will talk for two days with people like Aluthgamage making dramas and at the end any motion against will be defeated by 2/3rd. Is this what people are going to get?.
    MS should ask PM to step aside immediately and take the suspects to courts to hear it non stop. A case has been already established. The auditor general has indicated how much has been stolen. No more drama needed. If not MS too should resign before getting into a dangerous situation with protesters. Please think about what happened to strong men like Gadafi. I have a feeling the security forces and even police will look aside if a dangerous situation develops as they are demoralised.

    New constitution will be presented to the parliament on 10th of January. Please prepare for a referendum fairly soon. Our referendum in few months time will not be on political issues it is an issue related to the future of our Nation as a single unitary state, that will be on future of Sri Lanka. There are no political parties when it comes to this issue related to the next referendum. Here, we do not intend to support any political party, you are not supporting UNP or the Joint Opposition. JVP also did not talk about this problem, probably because of some benefits from Ireland or something. Rev. Rathana thero and Minister Ranawaka are silent because of their personal gains and political commitments. Politicians of both parties will vote for their personal gains they have already received their share and probably awaiting next installment as Rajitha stated prior to the election. UNP has already decided to vote for this constitution, SLFP ministers in the government campaign for new constitution in Malwatta temple. TNA is telling the truth to their voters, all the others hide the reality from the public. Parliament will overwhelmingly vote for new constitution. Do not expect anything from the present set of MPs in the parliament, never trust them. Only hope for a unitary Sri Lanka is the next referendum. We support the Adishtana Pujawa in Dalada Maligawa as an initiative to face a referendum effectively.
    If we vote for our country we should receive 77% they will receive 23% for their county. Sri Lankan identity should win at the end, just like in the United Kingdom , they preserved British identity.
    Unfortunately, media did not give adequate coverage for this grave problem, due to the fact that, there were no politicians in this event. Media also politically biased. Please forget your personal political interests when it comes to the issue of constitution and referendum. මාතෘ භූමිය බෙදා වෙන්කරන රනිල්,මංගලගේ කොටි කල්ලිය. https://www.facebook.com/1202622023096034/photos/a.1202624889762414.1073741828.1202622023096034/1355561574468744/?type=3&theater ..Please https://www.facebook.com/789397014534542/videos/790009271139983/ You may translate this message, forthcoming referendum is not a political issue it is a national issue related to the integrity of our nation. Please stop establishment of an Elam state in this land.
