Security needed for minorities: Says the Eastern CM

Security needed for minorities: Says the Eastern CM

The Eastern CM, Habis Ahamed Naseer said that the clause 2 of section 29 of the Solbury Constitution should be enacted in the new constitution.

The security of the minorities could be assured only through enacting in the constitution that no act could be passed in the Parliament against the minorities, the Eastern CM has said.

During a meeting with the UN Secretary General for the Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, the Eastern CM has pointed out this matter.

He has further said that it is a fact, that the revocation of the section 29 of the Solbury Constitution had caused several disturbances and the splits and confrontations among the races.

Hence to eliminate the doubts and the fear psychosis among the minorities, this section should be re-enacted in the New Constitution.

We do not have any objection for giving precedence to the Buddhist Religion, but the other religions and communities should be granted due places. Meanwhile the Provincial Councils should be provided with strengthened powers  and independence in the handling of finances should be granted to the Provincial Councils.

Residential lands and agricultural lands of people acquired by the Army have not been released to the people even after several years after the end of the war. These lands should be handed over to the people soon. Land powers should be handed over to the PCs, non-equal distribution of resources has resulted in un-employment in the east he has said.
