Mahinda must stop spreading hate, misinformation about constitution: Anura Kumara Dissanayaka appeals

Anura Kumara Dissanayaka 700 01

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayaka has appealed to former President and Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa to stop spreading hatred and circulating misinformation about the new Constitution among the people.

He made the appeal addressing the Constitutional Assembly. During his address, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said:

"Rajapaksa has now become an orb of hatred. He recently visited a temple and said that by April a new Constitution would be introduced and the country would be separated. He said the new Constitution would establish a Federal State. What lies are these? Why spread false information? We wouldn’t have minded if it was someone else who goes around saying such things. But this is a Former President we are talking about. He was the President in this country for some good ten years. He should be ashamed of these actions.

We express our displeasure at Rajapaksa led group depending on racism and religious animosity to gain power. We urge Rajapaksa not to create uneasiness among the general public. We urge him to conduct himself as a responsible leader.

The Steering Committee has failed to present a draft Constitution to the Constitutional Assembly even after a lapse of three years. The passage of a new constitution is a lengthy and complex process. But the Steering Committee is not even at the initial stage of the process. The Steering Committee has not come to any agreement upon electoral system, executive presidency and devolution of power.

The Steering Committee itself is divided into about four factions. They cannot come to any agreement. They have met 83 times for the last three years. If the Steering Committee cannot come to a unanimous decision, how can we ever actualize a new Constitution? We criticize Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe for not paying enough attention to accelerate the drafting process.”
