Dinesh expresses concerns over proposals on unitary state

MEP Leader Dinesh Gunawardena has expressed concerns over proposals for political solution that can change the unitary character of the island.

He was addressing the media in Colombo. He went on:

“Even though the first anniversary of the government is falling on January 9, pledges made by the government to the people have not yet been fulfilled. The so-called good-governance and economic development are not established in the country.

Meanwhile, the country is being going to another dangerous situation. If these proposals are made laws, eventually the country will be divided into two. The government should carefully work on the proposals which affect the country without being relied on political parties. We should stand against this dangerous situation irrespective of caste and religion. Before such major changes are made, the people should be consulted in a referendum.’
