Professor Venerable Bellanwila Wimalarathana thero stated that the current government should in no way infringe upon the national unity that was established within Sri Lanka by implementing constitutional amendments that will be detrimental to national accord.
Ven.Bellanwila Wimalarathana thero expressed these sentiments while speaking at the event held to announce the verdict of the Buddhist clergy on the steering committee report submitted on the constitution.
He pleaded with the current government not to mislead the public by beguiling private ambition behind technical terms.
“During the tenure of former President Chandrika Kumaratunga, Prof. G.L.Peiris too attempted to bring about certain constitutional changes. It is clear that the present government is attempting to implement the same amendments in a different manner” Ven.Wimalarathana thero said.
