Incidents of violence reflect law and order bankruptcy: Dinesh


Joint Opposition Parliamentary Group Leader Dinesh Gunawardena has condemned that the current incidents of violence reflect the bankruptcy of law and order and not an issue among Sinhala - Muslim, Tamil - Muslim or Sinhala - Tamil.

He made these observations yesterday, participating in the Adjournment Debate in Parliament that discussed the prevailing tense situation in the island.

He condemned such incidents as heinous activities that brought death and caused damages to properties of the people. The responsibility of implementing law was in the hands of the Government and it should take quick measures to bring the situation back to normal. As Premier Wickremesinghe pointed out, various messages were circulated in the social media. It is a grave phenomenon that the society faces by now. Kumarasinghe died on March 02, while the commotion took place on March 05. It should be investigated as to who urged thepeople. The law enforcement bodies should consider both sides.

He expressed his condolences over the unfortunate deaths that occurred during the recent conflicts in Ampara, Digana and Teldeniya.
