Nov 02, Colombo: The Democratic People's Front (DPF), a minor Tamil political party in Sri Lanka has accused the government of trying to disregard the minority communities in the country.
DPF leader Mano Ganesan told a news conference that comments made by several ministers indicate that the government was against the devolution of power.
He noted that Ministers Dinesh Gunawardena, Champika Ranawaka, Wimal Weerawansa, and Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa have spoken against the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
Ganesan noted that there's a misconception that power sharing created a separate state. Sharing power with the provinces does not create ethnic conflict or a separate nation since there's unity in diversity, the DPF leader said.
He added that the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka will be converted into a republic of Sinhala Buddhists.
