January 11, 2019
Minister of Megapolis and Western Development Patali Champika Ranawaka says certain individuals are attempting to spread false patriotism among the Sinhala community.
Speaking in Parliament Minister Ranawaka said a practical Constitutional process should be introduced without imagining unattainable scenarios.
The Minister noted according to the observations made it is clearly stated why it is important to protect the country’s sovereignty, and why religious freedom that has been granted for all religions should be maintained.
Minister Ranawaka stressed when comparing the number of Tamil citizens with Indian ancestors 68% of them live in the Northern Province adding the rights of all Tamil citizens cannot be protected by providing special concessions and commodities only to those in the Northern Province.
