The TNA spokesman and MP, M.A. Sumanthiran has said that the Sinhalese people are not opposing Federal Solution.
He has said this in an exclusive interview, he granted on Friday.
When I was discoursing Federal Solution in the recent past among Sinhalese people, their opinions were expressed in pro Federal Solution manner.
On several occasions, I have said among Sinhalese people that, the first person to introduce Federal Solution to Sri Lanka was no other than S.W.R.D. Bandaranayake and that the Kandyan leaders had said that Federal Solution is best suited to Sri Lanka.
I have expressed clearly among them that the Federal Solution which had been proposed by Sinhala Leaders themselves cannot be detrimental to the Sinhalese people.
In this context, I don’t think that the Sinhala people will view Federal Solution as a gargantuan issue, he had said.
He had further said that, a meeting of the Constitutional Assembly will be held on 25thy October and that a decision had been taken to submit a complete Constitution draft prepared by the experts.
