Opposition leader pins hopes on a new Constitution

Opposition leader R Sampanthan said that he hopes Sri Lanka will be able to overcome all the obstacles and challenges in framing a new Constitution which paves the way to achieve a lasting solution to the national question.

In a message to mark the traditional Sinhala and Tamil New Year, Sampanthan said that lasting peace and harmony is inevitable for a country to make progress in development and other areas of concern.

“My prayer is that in this New Year we will be able to overcome all the obstacles and challenges in framing a new Constitution which paves the way to achieve a lasting solution to the national question and gives the rights to the people to live with dignity, self-respect and self-esteem.” he said.

Sampanthan appealed to all people, as they celebrate the New Year together, to work together in order to bring true peace, better understanding, ethnic harmony and genuine reconciliation among the people. (Colombo Gazette)
