Minister of Housing and Construction, Wimal Weerawansa voiced his support towards the Cabinet decision to do away with the Tamil version of the National Anthem, branding this practice a joke.

 

He said that in no other country is the National Anthem sung in multiple languages including India where the National Anthem is only sung in Hindi despite the hundreds of languages been spoken in the country.

 

“Only in Sri Lanka is this being practiced and it’s a joke. This decision was simply a correction of an error made through the Constitution of 1978,” he added.
